I'll start from the end- make a reservation! Really! After this you can go to the magical place called science. But wait, there's more- children! Parents realise them from the leash and they running and shouting everywhere! So i run too- to the 16> space. But there are only computers with many more or less interesting programs. But I can...

Copernicus Science Centre is a great place for children but I wouldn't recommend it much to... well... grown-up kids like me:) It's great that you can touch and try everything but many of the let's-call-it-exhibits are infantile, easy to check on the Internet without waiting (terrible crowds all the time) or simply boring. Definitely go to at least one minilab... More

A genuinely fun and thought provoking day out. A modern science museum with shows, interactive games, robots, giant bubbles, science labs. A great education place of all ages and far from the conversation museum. In other words, great for people like myself who have a low attention span!

We went for the planetarium show without knowing there was also a gigantic interactive museum! Be sure to give yourself a full day to check out all the exhibits. Breakfasts and lunches are also served, very delicious and not too expensive. Cute gift shop as well

Worth the price of admission but would advise going on Tues, Weds or Thursday as packed with youth on Sat/Sun. You will not go wrong here, the exhibits are relevant to learning.

Great fun, but be careful there are a lot of people on weekends, it is better if you can choose another day.

Take the family here...maybe not the babes in prams...but as soon as they start asking "Why?". It's also great for grown-ups. Maybe avoid the end of the school year when there can be lots of school trips. Not just physics, chemistry...but a huge amount of psychology as well. Fascinating. Tickets can be booked in advance...but there aren't the huge queues... More

Spent all afternoon here. Plenty to do for all ages. Good hands on exhibits. If you have a cold or rainy day in Warsaw this is the place to go. Quite easy to walk to from Old town, but we got a taxi back to Centrum.

I saw most parents pushing their kids aside to "demonstrate" the fascinating and sophisticated exhibits. Though there's much for kids, this is no simplistic kiddie science museum. Take your time and everyone will be fascinated.
