We've been there with our 10 year old son. The place is very cool, even for small kids. You can touch all items and experience by yourself different aspects from science of physics and biology - human anatomy, light, sound, electricity, gravity etc. Whole building is divided into sections, so before going there it's worth to plan which section you...

I came here with group of 30 adults. Even when I booked and paid for tickets in advance I coldn't get the tickets the day before. Many points are out of order or temporary out of use. Locker room for the groups is not adapted for the coats: all the clothers are thrown to one one container. Coat hangers? Forget!

Really interesting for adults and kids. Best science centre I have seen. There are so many places that you want and can try out that everyone can explore their inner child.

I liked the Copernicus but maybe better for adults to visit it during 'no kids allowed' hours (I think they have such once a month).

This museum is definitely worth a visit. ALL of the exhibits are interactive and fun for everyone, not just the kids. The information is all in english so you can understand what's going on. Would recommend for people with and without children. (Way better than london's science museum)

No doubt Copernicus Science Centre is the latest and the greatest science center in Poland. There is no single one better than this one available in Poland. However in comparison to the Western counterparts, this one is fairly mediocre. Why? In my humble opinion overwhelming space is not well organized, namely I could not find any reasonable correlation between parts... More

Completely interactive using a blend of technology and materials to demonstrate and teach scientific principles from many fields of science. Build a dome, create bubbles of all sizes, experiment with optics, and play a stringless harp--- those are just a few of the activities. Physics was well represented and with the information available in both Polish and English the concepts... More

Waited nearly 45 min to get in on a Sunday but worth it. Very interactive and kid friendly. Highly recommend. Lots to see and easily could spend 3 hours there.

The Copernicus Science Center was a happy few hours in what is for the most part, a drab city. It was nice watching the children playing with the various science gadgets. I arrived shortly after it opened. Later in the day, the lines were very long.
