  • If you have a small child, he here exactly like it. If you or a child is fascinated by science, here is the place for you. If you want to spend the day-you do not rastroites. Many areas of complexity and rashhnoj topics. There is an interactive "majsternja", where it will be interesting to anyone.

  • To do with teenagers or younger children, do not speak Polish is not at all an obstacle... After a good half days. Unforgettable moment

  • A great science museum that will surely instill a love for experimentation in young children. While it did have many nice displays, others were missing explanatory cards, out of service, or sticky to the touch. But this is for kids, and as long as it causes them to love science more, I shouldn't hold it against them. I would definitely bring my children here in the future, should I have any, along with a bottle of Purell.
  • The place I'm returning to already fourth time! All changes they are implementing are only for good. At the every exhibition piece, you can find cards with explanations in Polish, English and Russian languages, this way, you will not only have fun but also learn something about physics, chemistry, etc. The best thing you can do is to buy tickets online as there are usually queues and with tickets from the internet, you don't have to wait. Also, the place is crowded with kids, which can be annoying as some don't know how to behave in public places, unfortunately. We spent there around 4h and will come back again once the second floor will be fully opened.
  • Awesome place for children and adults. A lot of equipment for experiments which increases understanding of physic processes. One of the most interesting places in Warsaw. However, usually they have big queues, it is advisable to buy tickets in advance.
  • I was hoping to learn something about Copernicus, but there was nothing about him and his work in this museum. If you never were in a similar physics experiment museum, you should visit this. But if you already were in such a museum, than this is nothing new. The place was very crowded and it seems like a great place for kids and families. But for those who were interested in Copernicus or some quiet time in a museum, stay away.
  • Huge interactive space! Fun guaranteed. Just book yourself tickets in advance on their website, especially on weekend, or else you can easily face impossibly long lines at the entrance - the place is really popular among locals as well as among tourists
