About

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.

This is a great museum for kids aged 7 and over and adults. Nice activity for the curious minds where everyone can find some topic of interest.
Usually, tickets for the museum are sold out. So if you want to visit this science center, it is advisable to book the tickets beforehand.

Our expectation for the museum were a bit higher than they've should be, that's an issue. This museum was so hyped for so long from left and right (acquaintances, friends et.) so it was hard not to expect something spectacular from it. So we both kids and adults were disappointed. Maybe if we hadn't visited anything similar to compare it with, our impression would be better, but since we were in AHHAA in Tartu, it was not the case. All members of a family unanimously said that experience in Copernicus Science Centre was not so fun, it seem to have more space, but exhibitions are somewhat scarce, and surprisingly, a bit less interactive. All in all it is solid science museum/interactive playground worth a visit, but just don't get your hopes to high, especially if you have been in similar venues somewhere else.

Also i better to reserve /buy tickets beforehand via internet, as it maybe the case that you will not be able to buy them on site for the same day to visit because venue limits visitor count and on busier days all maybe sold out.

Me and my friends were super excited to see this amazing museum! But immediatly when we arrived we realised how chaotic that place was. There is a lot to see and experience, but not enough room to do it. Everytime you were planning to try something kids were running ahead of you. How to explore the museum is not clear and the signs were not that good. Museum was too growdy and you always needed to whats your back so you don’t bumb in to someones kid. The museum would be very very nice if there was somekind of order where to go. It felt like kindergarden because of the chaos.

Plusses:
-So many things to do and experience if you have the patience to wait

Minuses:
-kids running around
-too crowdy

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.

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.

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!

We’ve been to the Science Center few times before and always had lots of time. Our latest visit in July along with poor customer service was rather disappointing. A lot of exhibitions were out of order. We felt that the price of the ticket wasn’t adequate to the experience provided. After our visit we contacted the management to raise our concerns but in return received a reply from the customer service manager stating that they are allowed to have a certain number of exhibits out of order and they met that criteria on the day of our visit. In my opinion very impersonal and poor service. Won’t be rushing back.

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.
