  • 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.

  • Kids love it and you can easily spend 3h inside and not be bored. It is a science center where kids can play with many installations and learn by doing it. Now it is possible to order tickets over internet and I highly recommend to do it. Usually during weekends they run out of tickets around 4 pm.
  • A very fun museum, with a different concept than most of other museums with no-touch policy. Super crowded, make sure to book ahead or get in line as early as possible - there is a limited amount of people allowed in the museum at once. Plan to stay for at least 3 hours, if you wish to experience most of the exhibitions.
  • Super Place to visit with kids or without. There is so much to do it’s an experimental/educational/science/space very interesting in general. Spend there over 4 hours and left only because they were closing the place :)
  • Good place for kids but many of the exhibits don't work or are weak. Overall a good place to spend 3+ hours with slightly older kids (6+).
  • Awesome and very busy. Book in advance on the website, or get there at 7:30! Great place to visit with kids, but also fun for adults.

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.
