In the second stage, next to the historic Roth's Villa, a modern building of the Fairy Tale Center will be erected. The anticipated date for the opening of the Interactive Fairy Tale and Animation Center is 2021. The project of the Interactive Center for Fairy Tales and Animation was prepared by the renowned architectural studio Nizio International Design, which participated in the creation of, among others, Museum of the Warsaw Uprising and Museum of the History of Polish Jews POLIN.
