  • In this place everything can be explained by an experienced way, one day you can comprehend a lot of laws of physics and know the abilities of human body... and children and adults will not want to leave. You can bring food and snacks in the café area, you can not take and snack in the café-also very tasty.

  • Tickets to the center have been booked by the travel agency. It turned out that the shortage of one ticket and one of the maintainers of a large group-the tour manager, guarding that all the children entered the center, was at the end and did not get admitted. We intervened, we wanted to buy a ticket that was not in our fault. The large group had only two caregivers. We have translated that we are responsible for the children that this is inconsistent with the rules. Ladies at the counter with the irony responded that they can not do anything, because "the system does not let go." I asked for a conversation with my supervisor. The young boy-Alan Lemański, ignored us, going somewhere on the back. When asked about the manager, he replied that he was not working anymore. I waited for the return of the supervising Lemański cashier, who returned after 10 minutes and turned to me in a way that suggested that he was starting a conversation with someone who had not talked before. In the "Copernicus" Science Center, people are working unanswered, unminded, "thrown" in schematics, unable to solve human problems.

  • Beautiful building to look at, but to get your SA It is recommended that you book tickets to the museum online. Unfortunately, what it was for us, everything was sold out that day we want to visit the museum.

  • I have visited quiet a few museums in the past but nothing like this one. Copernicus Science Centre is a fully I interactive museum that allows you to experience experiments you have only read of in a text book in school. You can review your knowledge or find out new things and understand your own limits through series of simple experiments. Definitely suggested for curious people
  • Copernicus Center is one of the best places in Warsaw for parents with kids to have fun, rest and learn something. There are areas like "BZZZy" for children age 0-5, closed where small children can play and learn in safe environment, while you watch them and you can have rest, there are areas where children can experiment together with parents all sort of science fun experiments. It's amazing place, designed with the modern spirit of respecting people with disabilities. There are also patterns on the floor for blind people as well as the building is accessible for persons on wheelchair. Strongly recommending!
  • Really great place for a day out, not only for families with kids, but also for adults, who want to release the kid in themselves ;) There's plenty to see and do to spend an entire day. Explanations and instructions in the exhibits are both in Polish and English. Shows like the Robot Theatre and Planetarium are Polish only though, but also much fun to visit for non-Polish speakers. Definitely recommended when visiting Warsaw.
  • Fantastic museum. Absolutely accessible. There are ramps to enter the exhibits, excellent toilets and even a wheelchair obstacle parcours to have people experience how to get around in a wheelchair. Very interesting for children of all ages, great thins to learn, discover, explore. Awesome education. Just perfect!
  • A great place for the whole family! The Centre is full of interesting and educating stuff. I’ve been there a few times and despite most of the exhibitions being the same, I was not bored at all! Ticket queues are usually very long so I’d recommend buying it online or coming appropriately earlier!
