  • As our group we were probably slightly out of the target range for this place but it looked a lot of fun and tickets were reasonably priced. Quick warning they do reach capacity often and after that p...  more »
  • Do not make the mistake to miss the science center. It is the highlight attraction of the city. Keep in mind that it is huge so make sure you have at least 2 hours to spend.  more »
  • We came on a Tuesday morning around 10.30am and thought since it was weekday there should be no crowd. We were so wrong. The ticket queue was closed since the centre was full and only opened 30 min la...  more »

  • Kids love it and you can easily spend 3h inside and not be bored. It is a science center where kids can play with many installations and learn by doing it. Now it is possible to order tickets over internet and I highly recommend to do it. Usually during weekends they run out of tickets around 4 pm.
  • A very fun museum, with a different concept than most of other museums with no-touch policy. Super crowded, make sure to book ahead or get in line as early as possible - there is a limited amount of people allowed in the museum at once. Plan to stay for at least 3 hours, if you wish to experience most of the exhibitions.
  • Super Place to visit with kids or without. There is so much to do it’s an experimental/educational/science/space very interesting in general. Spend there over 4 hours and left only because they were closing the place :)
  • Good place for kids but many of the exhibits don't work or are weak. Overall a good place to spend 3+ hours with slightly older kids (6+).
  • Awesome and very busy. Book in advance on the website, or get there at 7:30! Great place to visit with kids, but also fun for adults.

Where to stay in Warsaw

Many centrally located hotels in Warsaw cater mostly to business travelers, which makes them much too expensive for backpackers and other visitors on a limited budget. Although hostels may seem like the only affordable option at the height of the season, you can find less expensive lodgings in mid-range hotels on the outskirts of town. Alternatively, time your visit for the weekend, when many hotels near the city center slash their prices and offer special deals for early booking.
