About
The Copernicus Science Centre is one of the largest science centres in Europe. Its exhibition is divided into six interdisciplinary parts with over 400 exhibits. Music is combined here with biology, and mathematics with architecture. Science enters the realm of feelings, and the visitors themselves may become the object of observation.

It is a great place for entertainment. Most of the visitors are kids and teenagers but I recommend it for people at any age. It is never too late to learn something interesting and have fun at the same time! It is not a traditional museum, but very modern, interactive one. A lot of exhibitions, you can spend here at least a couple of hours but be prepared for crowds everywhere - for me a couple of hours of finding for a space is rather tiring. Booking in advance is highly recommended to be able to enter without queue and disappointment.

It is a nice experimentarium where you can touch and try everything. The center is rather big and has two floors. We liked the first floor more than the ground level - next time we will go directly upstairs. It is better to buy tickets beforehand on their website - the center has lots of visitors. You are sure to spend at least half a day there, so it is better to take some sandwiches with you not to be hungry - you are allowed to eat your own food on the first floor cafe zone where you can buy only drinks and some cakes.

It looked interesting....but we couldn't get beyond the ticket desk. Having been told that it was busy at weekends, we reported in at 09:30 on a Monday morning. And were told that no tickets would be available until 13:20. A lot of school parties seemed to be booked in. I guess this is more of an educational centre than a museum, which is fine so long as they make this clear. It also meant that our 'Warsaw Card' with its 'skip the line' claim was even more of a waste of time than we thought it was. The Copernicus Centre is in an impressive new building alongside the Vistula and adjacent to the Planetarium - unfortunately, access to the Planetarium is also difficult on school days.

Went there and there were no tickets. Had to come back later which I regret since it was more of a science workshop for children than a museum. Very few sign on English.
I also went for the Planetarium and the show. It was on polish in the loudspeakers and we who wanted english should use headphones. But the problem was that the polish loudspeakers were so loud that it was hard to hear what the English narrator said.
I would not recommend a visit to this museum, especially not if you are interested in Copernicus, because you didn’t learn a thing about his life and his achievements.

We had a few hours free so decided to take a look in here, No real queues and only a few people inside we managed to have a good look around.
Not too much waiting for the activities too.
There were a lot of activities for all ages and only a few minutes wait between each one!
Really enjoyed and highly recommend!

Fun and cool for every age. Enjoyed it myself and my teens. Interactive museum where we everyone can find some topic of interest. In Covid times, some labs are closed, but all the other parts are open, and they are a lot. Wouldn't miss this place, especially if you are traveling with kids.

We were there for almost 6 hours and still didn't manage to look all the stuff - it was amazing and very interactive. In the end we were just tired cause the day had been long, but it never got boring :) Great for adults and you can find your inner child from there - great exhibitions and lots of interesting attractions. Reccommend!

I got to visit the Kopernik Science Center on my last day in Warsaw. It was recommended by several people. It is less of a museum and more of a lab, which features hands on activities for people of all ages. However, is obviously geared to those visiting with school age children. Some of the exhibits were in English, but most of them were in Polish. It displayed experiments of DaVinci, Madame Currie, Isaac Newton, and others. I did have fun; however, I would not recommend it for three middle-aged men. That's why I focused on on the thermal imaging and funny photos.

As a grown up I still had much to learn. Well over 200 interactive exhibits ranging from basic physics to biomechanics to even space travel. The planetarium I felt should have been included as part of the ticket. We found its commentary less than the Polish speaking announcer. It was funny but for the wrong reasons.;
Nonetheless I'd recommend to any parent with children up to 18. There was a teenagery section but we felt that this was a little too electronic for us but there was still lots to see
