Why do we recommend the Science Centre?

T he modern and interactive science museum, known as the Copernicus Science Centre (Centrum Nauki Kopernik) in Warsaw, was specifically designed for children. It officially opened its doors on November 5, 2010, quickly establishing itself as a noteworthy educational institution and a favored spot for science enthusiasts of various age groups.

There are designated areas for experimenting with physical principles, as well as sections dedicated to biology and technology.

Engaging in Hands-on Exploration
