Rules of admission

How long does it take to see everything?

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).

Entrance to Planetarium

A separate, river facing entrance leads to the Planetarium building.  Upon entering the projection room, present your ticket to our Explainer. 

You will not be allowed in after the start of the show. It's best to show up 10 minutes early. We will not accept a ticket return or exchange if you are late. Being early also gives you a chance to see the Look: There's the Earth! exhibition in the Planetarium.
