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.

Wonderful place to learn stuff. This place is always crowded with both adult and kids and needs to be controlled. Some of the exhibition can't even be explored as its always occupied. The staff is always busy talking to each other and not helping out visitors unless asked. Good place to spend quality time learning about some stuff u never knew with explains.
The place is a must see when in Warsaw it doesn't matter if your young or old it's a great day out and a place where you will learn alot and have fun at the same time. It's a big place so allow 2 to 3 hours to make the most of it. It can be quite busy but there is plenty of different activities so when we went it wasn't like we had to fight over something with other people..
Great location to experiment, interactively, physical phenomenons that are around us. The experiments vary from fluid dynamics (hydraulic and aerodynamic) to magnetic field effects, without forgetting the usual mechanical and optical experiments. An active, knowledgeable staff is present to help you understand the experiments; cue cards in a variety of languages as at each experiment - you are likely to find staff that speaks your language. There is a free coat check at the entrance, and locations on both floors of the Center to rest, grab a bite or drink a refreshment. Restrooms are on the second floor - and yes, an elevator is present within the facility. The amount of people (kids and parents) in the center is controlled through tickets that specify a particular entry time. We recommend a minimum of 4 hrs to experience all the Center has to show!
Buy tickets before you go! Otherwise you will arrive and have a 3+ hour wait to get in! After that, it's really an amazing place, especially to bring kids of any age. If kids 5 and under, make sure you also reserve a time in the Buzzz exhibit area for kids when you buy tickets. It's tons of fun and science!
Great place for both kids and adults! So many interactive exhibits, I especially enjoyed the age restricted over 14 section which has interactive quizzes and challenges. You could easily spend a whole day in this museum! I would come back again
