Interesting place to visit!

A lot of interesting things to see and do at Copernicus Science Centre. You will need at least 4 hours to spend around there. It's free to take photos inside.

Full of kids and teenagers, very noisy and busy during the weekend, but it is a great place to discover and re-discover science. To visit everything in only one day might be too much (the planetarium is another visit, I didn´t enter), but I think is almost completely interactive and interesting. There are soem parts mostly for kids and some... More

Strongly adviced the museum. Very interesting, incredibly teaching and so cool (above all for the little ones). Not very impressive the planetarium. Take your time, the museum itself takes at least two hours.

This science centre offers very convenient and interactive way to see and understands laws of physics, biology, chemistry… There are laboratories where one can try own skills to practice and make things – you have to book them in advance as they are very popular and offer limited number of participants. Unfortunately there are several exhibits out of order. Snack... More

Its easy to say this place is good for kids and adults, but why? I think it's success is in the understanding that adults (just like kids) like to learn through hands on play and challenges. Hanging as long as you can on a bar, experiencing weightlessness on the moon, building igloos, launching hot-air balloons and experiencing an earthquake are... More

I have had a chance to visit a few Science Centers around the world. I wouldn't say that it would qualify as top 3 but it sure is a must visit while in Warsaw. The staff is very warm and friendly. The exhibits were engaging. The environment is casual and my 6 yr old didn't want to come out. The... More

For sure take some friends with you - the more the merrier! :) Never knew learning could be so much fun! There is something interesting for everyone here. Keep in mind that one visit may not be enough to go through everything.

A great way to keep kids entertained and adults too. We spent a few hours here and it was worth the visit.

To start the architecture style of the building is amazing making you anticipate the visit. It's a sure pleasure for children but adults will definitely find things to do. A slight disadvantage the fact that the site for e-tickets is available only in polish and if you try to get into the museum after 12 you might be confronted with... More

Very modern scientific and technical museum. A lot of interaction (also for kids) to explain experiments and physical principles. Bar and restaurant inside. Didn't try it. Good bookshop with a lot of choice about book and puzzle about science in general. Plan 3-4 hours.
