Copernicus Science Centre - Review
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, Warsaw Reviews
This installation is very modern, up-to-date and interesting for those who wish to experience and learn more about the sky and the stars. And for all ages, since the youngest until the oldest. There are many options of exhibitions with different themes and/ or focus in a movie theater-style auditorium. Also, this place is situated very close to the Vistula River (in front of it to be honest) and close to a very beautiful and nice boulevard where people can enjoy the day and the night by taking a walk, seating and admiring the views and landscapes or tasting a good food or a simple snack in the restaurants around the boulevard and around the Copernicus Science Center. Finally, schedule a visit to this place is definitely a great choice and, even if you do not visit the attractions of the Center and just enjoy its infrastructure and its outside sculptures and attractions (spread around the garden besides the main building), you will have a nice day.
By far this is the best hands-on science museum I have ever visited. There are *a lot* of exhibits in each section, and each has instructions and explanations in Polish, English and Russian (at least - each should have. Some of the English/Russian sheets are missing as they are not fixed to the exhibit). The staff is attentive and helpful. The only con I can list is that there is no access to the large eating area at the ground floor from inside the museum - this means you need to get out via the electronic reader. Since the tickets are valid for entrance between 30 minutes before the listed time and up to 60 minutes past it, this means you can't go out, eat, and then come back in Note that the tickets are for a listed entry time, and it's better to purchase online in advance, especially at busy times (or you can find yourself at the ticket office with tickets only for hours later).
Brilliant! Lots of interactive experiments to toy with and learn from as well as demonstrations from experts. Myself and my wife went and, though it's predominately aimed at children, we still learnt a lot and had so much fun with the exhibits. Multilingual exhibit cards are available and some of the talks that happen through the the day where in English. The shows at the planetarium where exceptional as well. I fully recommend them both. As a bonus you can walk down the river and enjoy the science gardens that are dotted along its length. I highly recommend this attraction if you have a day free.
I love science! These types of science museums were always my favorite as a kid, and they still are my favorite as an adult! The exhibits and demo's here are top notch and, and very well constructed. As a child, I remember going to such places and having broken demonstrations everywhere. At Copernicus science museum, great care has been taken so that rambunctious kids don't destroy the stations. I saw a total of 3 exhibits that were non functioning, and they were clearly labeled as such (it's really no fun as a kid to spend time trying to learn from a broken machine). Copernicus science also limits the amount of people in at a time. We had a 2 hour wait between when we bought our ticket and when we could enter. I was slightly annoyed by this, but more so at myself for not researching that better. It was nice because when we did get in, there was practically no wait at any of the demonstrations. Great science exhibits! Thanks!
What a great museum! We had an amazing time and we learned a lot. It is a wonderful science museum that has activities to all ages from 3 to 99 :) The museum has also an activities zone special for kid under 5 and a planetarium which is recommended to children over the age of 7. Have fun!
