The Copernicus Science Centre in Warsaw is a place for curious. There are over 450 interactive exhibits arranged in six thematic exhibitions:

Bzzz! - An exhibition for the youngest guests (suitable for children under 6 years of age). Here you can catch insects in an unusual grid created from your own shadow, or enter a kaleidoscope. For those who love adventures,  fantastic wet fun with water awaits (clothing for change should be taken!), And for ball fans - a special track.

Roots of Civilization is an exhibition that allows you to travel in time. Here you can play with a perspective grid, build a bridge designed by Leonardo da Vinci, or learn about various energy sources. Lovers of archeology can read the paintings, hidden in the walls, and the music fans themselves play the laser harp.

LIGHT ZONE is an incredible land of optical illusions. By carrying out many experiments you'll see how to fool the sense of sight. A must-see is to explore how laser eavesdropping work, what are the effects of mixing colors, and finally finding a room with a hidden perspective.

MAN AND ENVIRONMENT - exhibits situated here allow you to look inside the human body. By experimenting, you can explore the surrounding world. In the arena you can check your physical fitness, and then compare your results with the wild animals., While discovering the depths of the urban jungle, you will learn where tap water and electricity in the electrical outlet come from.

World in motion. At this exhibition you can find out how sound waves propagate, and how light propagates. Its here as well, where you'll find also a unique opportunity to produce an electric current! You can also see how a tornado comes to life and the experience of what happens during earthquakes. The air cannon will smash us against the wall, and the hanging balls will amuse us.

RE: GENERATION is designed for people older than 14 years of age.

The exhibition includes 80 multimedia and interactive exhibits where you can experiment by yourself or in a group. They are located in four regions: Me (psychology and inner life), Me-You (the relationship of two persons, partnership, friendship, love, relationship between man and the new technologies), Me-We-They (relations between individuals and groups, and between groups, social phenomena), Me-World (the impact on our modern world and how we affect it).

Eg. you can dance while producing electricity, learn how drugs affect the man, check the limits of your own fear, make contact with your "I", stand face to face with representatives of subcultures.

Visitors learn about empathetic robot and test their future in their chosen profession. You will learn how to recognize the lie and try to plunge into the world of sex. At the end - will be able to make contact with people similar to you and to send a message in the direction of extraterrestrial civilizations.

For the  RE: generation gallery the same ticket as for all the others are valid, is also open during the same hours.

In addition, at the Copernicus Science Centre you can watch a performance at the Robotic Theatre, listen to the eerie sounds in the Explorers' Park, or visit the Copernicus' Sky planetarium.
