The origin of this rather futuristic looking building is a bit curious. Radio Polski once use to organise science picnics, which were mainly directed at the children of Warsaw. During these picnics, natural and scientific phenomena were explored in a rather hands on manner. As popularity in this activity grew, the authorities used EU funds to build this beautiful museum to facilitate the country’s growing interest in science; whether in astronomy, biology, social sciences, history or geology to name a few.
Try not to visit during school hours, as the whole place will be filled with children. Of course, bring your own. The exhibits are creative, imaginative and interactive. The hands on philosophy have been taken to its zenith.
Also, visit nearby attractions which are covered in Warsaw itinerary 1 day.

Copernicus Science Centre Reviews & Ratings
One of the greatest experiences in Warsaw! Be aware though that you need to buy tickets before online, because on site there are usually no tickets available. It is great for both adults and kids, takes a lot of time, I suggest to visit it and spend around 2-3 or even more hours there. Has an okay coffee shop with sandwiches, cakes and drinks, a bit pricey though, but you can eat your own food at special places.
Highly enjoyable for adults and kids, makes you feel like a kid again, and there's plenty of information to learn. It's also wonderful to visit a meusum where every third activity allows you to sit, so you can spend the whole day there without getting tired. Just keep in mind that you can't go out for lunch in the middle. Some panel were missing English explanations.
World class science museum, in the top 3 I've seen in Europe, and probably the best for children. However, it has two rather large flaws. First, it's not exactly friendly to foreign visitors. The English instruction pages are missing on some exhibits, the Robotic Theater show is not subtitled and the various labs are held only in Polish. Secondly, only a small cafe with sandwiches and sweets is available inside if you want to spend the entire day.
Great place for a rainy day ;) it’s basically a big open space with particular interactive ‘stations’ where you can try out some little experiments concerning technology, senses, music, human reactions and much more. Designed more towards kids, I’d say, but adults will have some fun all the same. Worth visiting :)
A must visit in Warsaw! Kids and adults all ages will like to spend a lot of time there. Make sure to come as early as possible and allow at least 3 hours and much more. My family spent 4 hours and we didn't got through everything. There is also a cafeteria and it is easily accessible.
