Less than awful, downright appalling.
Aug 2020
I know that it is in the middle of COV 19, but it is the second time I have travelled to this bloody museum, paid for the overpriced car park traipsed my kids up the 400 m hill to meet another kids only to be told that they have no tickets until 3 hours later. I wouldn't have minded if they saw our group of two adults one 8yr old and two 3 yr old and told us, but no, they take the money from my friend, then tell me I have to wait - 3 yr olds do not sit patiently for three hours, Three year olds cry when they see their best friend going inside to play! Half suspecting that we would not get in, I took the tram today so was spared the argument to get my money back for the car park... But I did not expect the moronic staff to sell tickets to half a group, and then refuse to sell them to the other half? I have had enough of the rude, zero customer service manner in which they informed me that we would have to wait... I know that customer service is much rarer in Poland, but you would think that the museum service could find some monkeys with half a brain to deal with families with young children. If they continue to treat their future audience with such contempt, they deserve to go under. Cant comment on how the virus has affected the once excellent exhibits, and frankly have no wish to do again, will spend the car park fee on a train to Gdynia and go to the much better Experiment in future.

Góra Gradowa - You can spend an interesting half of day here
Aug 2020
Interesting place for children. You can experience science by touching it. In addition, interesting fortifications on Mount Gradowa and great views of the city.

Poor exhibition and disappointing elements.
Dec 2019
This exhibition is quite basic and does not show nor explain more than you can read in the children's encyclopedia. Besides the exhibition itself, on the geographical map, I was disappointed to see Crimea excluded from Ukraine. This is sad to me because I think that, the science center suppose to care about objective truth and facts.

Interesting science museum in historic fort in Gdansk
Aug 2019
Museum is divided in four theme zones. The stations are interactive and fun for different ages. The puzzle room is regulated by traffic light, to regulate the number of people inside. When we visited in the morning we only had to wait a few minutes, in the afternoon the line was longer. The fort itself is also worth visiting (no entrance fee needed for that). In the chambers you walk by, the history of Gdansk is told. The science museum is both English and Polish, the history part is only Polish, although there is an English brochure available that also tells the story.

Not suitable for prams/ or strollers
Aug 2019 • Family
Exhibition as such is wonderful lots of interesting things, divided into different topics. Disappointing as a family place you can't take stroller inside. I did not fancy carrying around my younger children, who doesn't walk. Luckily another member of family volunteered to stay behind. Questions if stroller can't go, what disable person on wheelchair should do!?

Very interesting science center with a lot of fun for the whole family
Jun 2019 • Family
This place was on our must do list as we have to kids (12 and 4, as well as an 8 month old) that really enjoy hands on exhibits. The center is split up into different "sections" with a different theme. Each of the themes had a number of different hands on exhibits that demonstrated a wide variety of scientific/environmental principles. We probably used about 3 hours here but could have spent a lot more time if the youngest didn't need a break. The area around the center is also fascinating and I would have definitely enjoyed exploring the area more if I got the chance. We would come again if we are ever in Gdansk again.

Interesting defense site
May 2019 • Couples
Really beautiful area to enjoy on a sunny day. Unfortunately for us, it’s in Polish only but the bunkers and the cross on the hill memorial were interesting to see. Overlooks the city of Gdansk too so enjoy the view! Include Corpus Christi Church and the Cemetery next to it when you visit. Lots of history in this area.

Surprisingly good
Jan 2019 • Family
This place was surprisingly good. Found it by chance - the name "Centrum Hewelianum" and an ugly picture is not really a good sell... Had NO expectation, expected something really boring, just a place-filler in the old barracks. But is was a surprisingly new and well developed interactive museum targeting kids.

Looks fascinating
Jan 2019 • Friends
We should have checked before we walked to it as it was closed but it is clear that there is a lot to see given the lay out and structures including a information centre and what seemed to be an eating establishment , Despite the fact we could not get in there were some walks round the site.
