Copernicus Science Centre
In the Copernicus Science Centre (CSC) in Warsaw, science is tested by means of direct experience and experiments. Exhibits are not hidden behind glass panes, but encourage personal engagement in discovering and understanding the world.
It is a place for people who do not hesitate to board a flying carpet, lie on a fakir's bed or put a hand in a mini-tornado. Although the Centre was designed primarily with young people in mind, all experiments there are based on solid science and may be enjoyed by both children and adults.
Visitors have access to hundreds of exhibits in six interdisciplinary exhibitions that occupy several thousand square metres. The electrifying High-Voltage Theatre and the world's first Robotic Theatre are certainly worth your attention. During lab classes, participants can experiment like real scientists.
A visit in the Heavens of Copernicus Planetarium – one of the most modern facilities of this type in Europe – is an unforgettable experience. The shows organised there take spectators to the distant nooks of the Solar System and of our galaxy.
Around the CSC's building, there is a Discovery Park with art exhibits presenting sound effects, an open air gallery and a summer stage.
The Copernicus Science Centre is one of the largest science centres in Europe. The Centre co-organises the Science Picnic, the largest open air event promoting science on our continent, as well as workshops, shows, festivals and special adult-only night shows.
