Copernicus Science Centre (Polish: Centrum Nauki Kopernik) is a science museum standing on the bank of the Vistula River in Warsaw, Poland. It contains over 450 interactive exhibits that enable visitors to single-handedly carry out experiments and discover the laws of science for themselves. The Centre is the largest institution of its type in Poland and one of the most advanced in Europe. In 2018, since its opening, it had been visited by over 8 million people.

Excellent facilities, fun stay and much to do. Unfortunately crowded and only allows one entry/exit per ticket. The restaurant is reasonably priced, but unfortunately also outside the main area. Fun with children!
Great place for everyone who is (or wants to be) interested in science. I'd recommended dedicating one day for it, unless you want to attend all additional classes, then one day probably is not enough. Facilities are clean, staff is really nice and food is surprisingly not overpriced. Awesome place!
Absolutely breathtaking place which introduces the world of science in the most interactive, contemporary and overwhelming way. The complex includes the center with exhibitions, garden on the roof and separate building with planetarium and spherical cinema. The tickets should be bought in advance as they sell out very quickly. In the Planetarium you can even touch a real meteorite. What I found very useful is that all of the information is given in both Polish and English. A perfect place for any age. This scientific center provides cafeteria as well, so no worries about the snack.
You can spend there hours, place is very interesting and you can learn a lot while having fun the only problem are the kids - or rather parents who don't take care of them and let them interrupt your experiments, go in front of you in line, scream at you or try to destroy some of the objects. There is a zone adults only which is real fun. If they introduce some child-free hours I guess a lot of people would decide to go and have fun. Overall money and time nicely spent. There is a small bar with river view balcony where you can get drinks and snacks.
For our kids, this was the highlight of our family's visit to Warsaw! Educative fun, basically, and enough of it to keep the children (and adults) busy for a few hours. Some of the free attractions (including science labs and toddler space) require special tickets from the main desk. Inquire about it before you start exploring. Also, the tickets for the museum must be bought online. I was able to get ours for the next day at my preferred time without any problem.
Hands-on science for all. A large living museum of sciences, suited for all ages and levels of instruction. A bit tight on the rules regarding age to access certain areas. Good to spend an afternoon with family. In weekends can be very crowded and one can wait hours for access. There are online tickets available, not very practical for spot-on tourists. The place has a cafeteria with a rich choice of foods and beverages, prices are above Warsaw average.
While visiting Warsaw - it's "must visit" place. It would be better to go there with children. They would have fun and adults would learn sth new. Interesting exposition. Big place.
I was hoping to learn something about Copernicus, but there was nothing about him and his work in this museum. If you never were in a similar physics experiment museum, you should visit this. But if you already were in such a museum, than this is nothing new. The place was very crowded and it seems like a great place for kids and families. But for those who were interested in Copernicus or some quiet time in a museum, stay away.
The science centre is clearly made for kids but us adults had lots of fun anyway! We learnt a lot via the myriads of experience. The one thing I'd bring up as negative is the lack of proper explanation for the experiments in a few occasions in English. But, this didn't stop us from trying everything out. Definitely plan at least half a day here!
Super interesting, fun place. The wish there was more to eat and drink though. Watched a show highlighting the differences between Tesla and Edison but it was in Polish - they don't do any English equivalents. Didn't understand what they said but still enjoyed it. Absolutely delightful place.
Did you ever wonder if those things they taught you in school really work? Things like "in vacuum a feather will fall as fast as a stone"? You can check that here. 2 floors full of simple science that show the works of the most elementary forces of nature. Guaranteed fun for people from 3 to 99 years old.
Great for kids and adults! Tickets are not that expensive! The planetarium does have a good program too. You need a half day to see and try everything, so if you have more days in warsaw it's worth it. But if you're just there for 2,3 days there are better places to go.
Great and enjoyable place where you can learn many information that you didn't know about. You can see every achievement about science by facilities maded to understand easily how it works! You can spend hours there and not get bored. Highly recommended! Best option is to go there with family or friends.
