Before you come, check the opening hours of the Science Centre »
At Copernicus, within the exhibition area, there are over 400 exhibits. You need about 5 hours to see them all, but it can be done within 3 hours. The ticket to the exhibitions allows the groups also to see shows at the Robotic Theatre and at the High Voltage Theatre (shows are conducted only in Polish and last around 20 min). Additionally, with separate tickets, the groups can attend our laboratories (workshops in the laboratories are conducted only in Polish and last 2 h) or see a show at the planetarium (45–50 min).
There are no guides at Copernicus and you set the visiting route yourself. However, there are explainers, dressed in red shirts, at the exhibitions, who know everything about the exhibits. They explain the way each device works and tell you about the phenomena, that these exhibits represent.
Bistro Wiem, café on the upper floor, Blue Sky café at the Planetarium
In accordance with the regulations of the CSC, it is prohibited to eat or drink while visiting the exhibitions except for designated places (the bistro, cafés). At Copernicus there are several such places.
In the entrance zone, nearby the tickets offices, there is “Wiem” Bistro (conducted by an external company). You can have there lunch. The Bistro offers also hot drinks and desserts. We kindly remind you that after leaving the CNK exhibitions, it is not possible to return and continue the tour. Therefore, we suggest that you plan your meal before or after your tour. Groups willing to order a meal are asked to make a phone call first. The number is: +48 22 596 42 90.
On the upper floor, within the exhibition area, there is a café – leisure zone, where you can take a rest and regain your energy for further experimentation. The café menu includes hot and cold drinks, sandwiches, cakes and desserts. You can also enjoy the food that you brought from your home there.
At the Planetarium, there is the Blue Sky, where you can buy sandwiches, sweets and hot and cold drinks. We kindly remind you that after leaving the CNK exhibitions, it is not possible to return and continue the tour.
In the exhibition space on the upper floor of the Copernicus Science Centre, you can find zones with benches (near the blue and orange pavilions), where you can relax and gather some strength for further experimentation.
Nor in the municipal parking zone around the Copernicus Science Centre, neither in the Copernicus car park there are no coaches parking places. Buses can stay at Wybrzeże Kościuszkowskie street, in front of the Copernicus Science Centre, up to 15 minutes, exclusively while delivering or collecting groups. We kindly ask all groups travelling by coach to respect this rule, since blocking the parking lot makes it difficult for other groups to reach the Copernicus Science Centre safely. For longer stays, please use the city’s car parks designed specifically for them.
