Overview

The core of the museum's excitingly varied and unique collection is made up of equipment used for producing town gas from hard coal, which was also dubbed “illumination gas”. In addition to the exceptionally rich collection, the museum also boasts equally impressive surroundings. The old red brick buildings gracefully manage the trick of taking the visitor back in time. The charming gas lamps, alleys full of lush greenery, complemented by the handsome facades of the surrounding buildings, the water tower and the distinctive and monumental gas holders, create a unique atmosphere of old Warsaw.

On two different occasions phoned ahead and checked internet. On both occasions on arrival told by apologetic staff that it was closed. If you're passing then see if it's actually open but don't make a special trip.

I don't know if it was to early, but nothing was working like on the video. We had the place to ourselves, but not much to do but read the few signs in English. Not worth the bus ride for us. Also, a class was...More

The Museum of Gas Industry is a great small museum. For those interested in industrial architecture, as well as early equipment for gas processing, distribution, and end use, this is a very nicely laid out museum with many interesting items. The signage is basic, but...More
