Copernicus Science Center

Copernicus Science Center

Science enthusiasts will find a paradise in the heart of the Polish capital at the Copernicus Science Center in Warsaw. This museum offers a delightful and entertaining exploration of biology, physics, medicine, and much more, allowing visitors to test their senses and enjoy a hands-on experience.

A museum for the whole family

The Copernicus Science Center is Warsaw's most interactive museum, offering a hands-on experience across its three floors full of simulators, games, and experiments.

Dedicated to the renowned Polish astronomer, this science museum ranks among the largest and most advanced centers of its kind in Europe. Visitors not only have a lot to see but can actively engage with everything: test earthquake strength, observe their own heartbeat, experience Neil Armstrong's moonwalk, unveil hidden mirror properties, and more.

The Copernicus Center aims to transform visitors of all ages into researchers and scientists for a day.

The Copernicus Planetarium

Next to the Science Center, you'll find the planetarium, known as Copernicus' Sky. Within the planetarium's dome, an awe-inspiring starry sky is projected, allowing detailed observation of stars, planets, and celestial systems. Also, by using three-dimensional projection technology, visitors can take a journey to the depths of the ocean.

Discoverer's Park

Another fun addition to the Science Center is the Discoverer's Park, a green space designed for children to engage in play with light and sound stimuli emitted by scattered pipes throughout the garden.

Ideal if you're traveling with children

While the Copernicus Science Center is a museum for all ages, the majority of its exhibitions are designed for children. It serves as a space for young ones to explore, experiment, and grasp fundamental scientific concepts in an engaging and enjoyable manner.
