  • Copernicus Science Center is a wonderful place to spend time with children and family. In this science museum you can see inventions at arm's length. The museum is two-story, so it is better to come early in the morning. Approximately time spent - 5 hours. If your child has a student or student, then the ticket will be at a discount. I recommend visiting on weekdays, as there are too many people on weekends
  • I always enjoy coming here. It's a great time for all the family. Just remember to buy the tickets online if you're coming on a busy day! There are limited slots available every 20 minutes. We had to wait almost two hours to get in when we came on a busy Sunday
  • I've been there once and got a lot of cool emotions, unfortunately spent only few hours. Wonderful place with many interactive exhibitions that can't get you bored. Price is quite low. It's totally worth spending full day there!
  • Perhaps one of the best science centres/museums I have been to. It is more millennial geared than any other science museum have seen. Challenge for any museum today is to counter short attention spans and with use of highly interactive exhibits Copernicus does that very well. Be careful not to spend too much time on ground floor as there is a lot more on the second floor and most of the labs are on the second floor which run at specific time intervals. An icing on the cake was the Planetarium where we saw a very engaging 'We are aliens' 3D show on the possibility of life beyond earth. Fascinating and my normally museum-averse 10 year old came out enthralled which in itself is a certificate of merit for the centre.
  • Me and my teenage kids absolutely loved this place. It's packed with well thought out interactive displays and experiments. We were there for 2 hours but could have easily spent 4 there. Exhibits to interest young and old. I especially liked the Foucault pendulum (Google it!)
