A collection of photos from the late 19th and early 20th century can be viewed with the use of a historic stereoscope at the Silesian Museum in Katowice, southern Poland. A stereoscope is a viewing device that allows users to see a three-dimensional image from a set of two-dimensional photographs or drawings. Visitors to the museum can feel the atmosphere of years gone by thanks to a renovated and newly reopened stereoscope from the late 19th century, the only device of its kind in Silesia province.

The old photos feature images of cities in Poland and Europe, historic buildings in the Middle East and everyday scenes taken in Poland's Upper Silesia region at the end of the 19th century and the start of the 20th century. The stereoscope at the Silesian Museum is one of a few stereoscopes still left in Poland. It was in use between 1949 and the 1980s in the city of Sosnowiec.
