  • As in many trips were to see that such and we have a huge queue. The girl who controlled the capacity told us, of those who were in the tail, probably not enter all that day. We advise you ask reservation for another day or get us pass card from Warsaw that you spent no glue. The building is modern and curious, the best thing was that in at the end of the building there is a park with various food stalls and sale, with tables and wooden benches, where you can eat all kinds of food. They were placing them and I do not know if will be something normal or weekends week.

  • Great place to stay for the whole day with the kids! A lot of entertainment for big and small! The best for our children play in the water and beep. A little damage from the bar inside is so poorly equipped and has only one espresso machine that was broken, proposes also a little healthier range enter:) we recommend it!

  • Nice and very interesting to watch especially for kids but the partial lack of directions in English is inexcusable for a museum with a strong tourist vocation. Numerous signs suggest that to avoid queues and buy your tickets online but the website is only in Polish ... However one of the few things of interest in Warsaw, recommended and required if travelling with children.

  • Very good place. Nice learning for kids. Also adults can have fun with science. It takes at least 3 hrs to see the museum. Tip- book your tickets online so u don't need to stand in line. If not get early because there is huge queue
  • Parking can be difficult. Prices are good. Tour takes 1.5 - 2hrs. Excellent for kids and there science subjects. Great interactive games, videos and demonstrations inside. It really challenges children and there knowledge. Good for a family day out. Adults will enjoy also. Worth a visit even if in Warsaw for a quick visit. Staff are helpful and friendly.
  • It should be wonderful place. I guess. We were in Warsaw for two days: Sunday and Monday. We came here at Sunday at about 2 pm and they had stopped selling tickets. We tried to buy e-tickets online (as we were recommended), but it's hard to do in polish (the only option on the site). And when we finally managed to understand how to do it, the site said that the closest date is Tuesday (they don't work at Monday). We lost some time and didn't get anything. So, be careful, guys.
  • Probably the best interactive science museum I've been to. Really interesting and loads to do. Great for kids. Was there a good few hours and didn't manage to see it all so you'll be kept entertained a while.
  • Fantastic place for kids (and adults). Many very well-executed interactive exhibits, and basically everything had English as an easy second option or placard. A bit crowded inside but totally doable. Often sold out; buy online a couple days before going!

Where to stay in Warsaw

Many centrally located hotels in Warsaw cater mostly to business travelers, which makes them much too expensive for backpackers and other visitors on a limited budget. Although hostels may seem like the only affordable option at the height of the season, you can find less expensive lodgings in mid-range hotels on the outskirts of town. Alternatively, time your visit for the weekend, when many hotels near the city center slash their prices and offer special deals for early booking.
