Warsaw Vodka Museum is a place in the capital of Poland, where you can learn many interesting facts about this alcohol. If you ever wondered, how the history of vodka even began – you should visit this museum.

The whole museum is located in an old odka factory complex: “Koneser”, where the most popular polish alcohols were prepared many years ago. When the place was shut down, owners of the museum decided to redo part of the complex and make it a place worth visiting.
During the tour, you can read everything in both Polish and English, as all the tables are translated into those languages. However, if the visitors come from another part of the world and their English isn’t good enough – there is still a possibility to order a tour with guide speaking another language. This, however, has to be done with further notice – at least a couple of days.
