Copernicus Science Centre (Polish: Centrum Nauki Kopernik) is a science museum standing on the bank of the Vistula River in Warsaw, Poland. It contains over 450 interactive exhibits that enable visitors to single-handedly carry out experiments and discover the laws of science for themselves. The Centre is the largest institution of its type in Poland and one of the most advanced in Europe. In 2015 it has been visited by over 5 million people since its opening. The first module of the Centre building was opened on 5 November 2010 with five galleries (On the move, Humans and the environment, Roots of civilization, Lightzone, Bzzz!); the exhibit for teenagers – RE: generation was opened 3 March 2011; a planetarium The Heavens of Copernicus opened on 19 June, the Discovery Park on 15 July, chemistry laboratory - 18 October; biology laboratory - 15 November, robotics workshop - 6 December, and physics laboratory - 20 December. Since 2008, the Copernicus Science Centre together with Polish Radio has organized the Science Picnic - Europe's largest outdoor science-popularization event. In 2011 the Centre hosted the ECSITE conference (European Network of Science Centres and Museums) – one of the most important events in the field of science centres and museums in the world.

    Very good place. Nice learning for kids. Also adults can have fun with science. It takes at least 3 hrs to see the museum. Tip- book your tickets online so u don't need to stand in line. If not get early because there is huge queue

    Parking can be difficult. Prices are good. Tour takes 1.5 - 2hrs. Excellent for kids and there science subjects. Great interactive games, videos and demonstrations inside. It really challenges children and there knowledge. Good for a family day out. Adults will enjoy also. Worth a visit even if in Warsaw for a quick visit. Staff are helpful and friendly.

    It should be wonderful place. I guess. We were in Warsaw for two days: Sunday and Monday. We came here at Sunday at about 2 pm and they had stopped selling tickets. We tried to buy e-tickets online (as we were recommended), but it's hard to do in polish (the only option on the site). And when we finally managed to understand how to do it, the site said that the closest date is Tuesday (they don't work at Monday). We lost some time and didn't get anything. So, be careful, guys.

    Probably the best interactive science museum I've been to. Really interesting and loads to do. Great for kids. Was there a good few hours and didn't manage to see it all so you'll be kept entertained a while.

    Fantastic place for kids (and adults). Many very well-executed interactive exhibits, and basically everything had English as an easy second option or placard. A bit crowded inside but totally doable. Often sold out; buy online a couple days before going!
