Copernicus – What’s it all about?

The Copernicus Science Centre is not a museum. There are no glass cabinets or guides to show you around. Rather, it’s a space that will inspire you to observe, experiment, ask questions, and look for answers. It’s up to you what you take home.

You will find more than 400 exhibits here. Although things may look chaotic at first glance, the exhibits are grouped by subject. We have a total six permanent galleries. However, the borders between them are quite fluid: because just like in the world around us, the most interesting things occur at places where different sciences intersect, intermingle, and complement one another. Our exhibitions are like a living organism, constantly changing. We are constantly building new exhibits and working hard to improve the existing ones. Also, once or twice a year we proudly host temporary exhibitions brought in from all over the world, with entrance included in the regular ticket price.

The way you choose to experience Copernicus depends on you alone. So let your curiosity be your guide! On the other hand, at any point you can ask for help from an “explainer” or choose one of the suggested visiting paths. Don’t worry that you won’t get to see everything. There’s so much on offer that it’s practically impossible to take in everything during a single visit.

Don’t be afraid not to know something. Don’t be afraid to ask about something. Don’t worry about making mistakes. Keep checking and testing for yourself. Let your inquisitive mind dig deeper. Unleash your imagination and don’t be complacent. Those are the traits of a discoverer, which each of us carries inside us. At Copernicus, we want to remind you of that fact.
