Ideas for trips to the Copernicus Science Centre and the planetarium:
Exhibitions in the Copernicus Science Centre
Ticket to the Copernicus Science Centre is bought for a particular hour, but there is no time limit for the visit. You can enter the Centre 30 minutes before the hour for which the ticket was purchased, and no later than 60 minutes after it. The average visit duration is 3 hours. In the Copernicus Science Centre you will find a cloakroom and Bistro Wiem.
The exhibition space at Copernicus has been divided into two floors, where you will find 6 thematic exhibitions with 400 interactive exhibits, two theatres—Robotic Theatre and High Voltage Theatre—and Thinkatorium. You will also find some temporary exhibitions.
There are no visiting paths or traditional guides in our Centre, but we have plenty of Explainers (who wear red t-shirts) always ready to help and answer all your questions. Remember that due to introduction of e-tickets with QR codes, you can enter the Copernicus Science Centre only once during one visit – once you exit, re-entering the Centre in not possible.
Apart from the exhibitions, you can visit the planetarium. Its wide offer of films and shows provides something interesting for children and adults of all ages. All films in the planetarium can be watched in English. To receive your English language version, you can rent a relevant headset in the ticket office before the screening provided you show your ID with a photograph.
Most of the screenings are divided into two parts:
* Live Sky Show presented in Polish only,
* Film in the Polish or English language version.
Holders of combined tickets (bought in one transaction) to the Copernicus exhibitions and to the planetarium are entitled to enter twice (go to the Planetarium and come back to the exhibi-tions). The planetarium is for children aged 3 and over.
We also invite you to visit the Discovery Park and our Rooftop Garden.
Discovery Park has been designed by engineers, artists and landscape architects, and comprises green park area located between the Copernicus Science Centre and Vistula River/Świętokrzyski Bridge. In our Discovery Park you will find exhibits that allow experimenting with sounds. In warmer months, the Park is a perfect place for astronomical sky observations.
The Copernicus Rooftop Garden (open May-October) looks like riverside landscape. It is a great place for an open-air biology lesson as it is home to many plant species adapted to growing in harsh conditions. Art teachers can also take their students here and enjoy a great view of the Vistula River, riverside boulevards, the Old Town and the modern National Stadium silhouette.
