My wife is a retired teacher and our daughter has been teaching in Europe for 9 years. We have visited many science museums over the years and this is one of the most well thought out hands-on science museums we have been in both in the USA and overseas.

Interactive museum where the visitor becomes the protagonist and lives in a direct way what is displayed in the museum. I highly recommend you book well in advance and buy tickets online because the museum is always mobbed, and you run the risk that the inputs are closed! Absolutely do not miss the fantastic garden roof transformed into a magnificent... More

We are a couple in our sixties and we had a brilliant time in this museum on a recent trip to Warsaw. We only planned to have a quick look around but we soon got engrossed in all the exhibits - so much to do! A few things didn't have an English translation but most did, so we were able... More

Great place for everyone despite the age. You can spend the whole day here trying, touching, listening, playing, laughing, watching etc. I also had luck to get a ticket to a planetarium, but I have to say it was pretty boring. What attracted me was a physical class (lab): you buy a ticket and you make experiments supported by local... More

Much things to see and to do! Recommended if u are going to Warsawa. I think need minimum 4 hours to see all.. Getting tired of many childrens who screaming, trying to touch, break up everything in they way. No offence. Very nice place.

Fantastic experience for children, they can touch everything, play. There is also planetarium, astronomical observatory, mini laboratories, and sometimes very interesting temporary exhibitions. Worth to visit.

Great place for all ages. We arrived as the student groups were leaving to go back to school and we nearly had the whole place to ourselves. Lots of interesting and interactive exhibits.

The Copernicus Science Centre is a great museum. It has a lot of experiments and interactive elements which are fun for both kids and adults. I went here with my family and a friend and ended up learning a lot about science and how things work. We had a great time and I definitely recommend you go when visiting Warsaw.

Really interesting place and for sure worth visiting. It might be little overcrowded, so if you have possibility - book before going to the center to skip the line. You have to plan at least 4-5 hours, but if you really want to try everything, it will not be enough.
