Copernicus Science Centre

A real paradise for science enthusiasts, not only children! Here you can discover the secrets of nature, conduct experiments on your own and have fun doing it. At the CSC, don’t ask for a guide. Here, everyone is a researcher and discoverer and we don’t do experiments under someone else’s order. You will conduct experiments here on your own, finding out how your senses allow you to perceive the world.
You will find out how much your body can do, its sensitivity to light, colour perception and your susceptibility to illusions. Hundreds of exhibits in the Experimental Zone will help you understand phenomena related to waves and currents.

The ‘Future is today’ exhibition will transport you to the world of the end of the 21st century. In its first part, titled ‘Digital brain’ you will discover how neural networks function, meet your machine double, see a fully autonomous car, and also meet AVIVA, a virtual composer.

In the second, called ‘Mission: Earth’ you will take a walk through time and learn what changes have occurred in Earth’s atmosphere as a result of human activity. 

The last part, ‘Human 2.0’ presents, among other things, micro-robots that in the future might replace medicine, and a prototype of an additional third thumb.

In the High Voltage Theatre you will watch an unusual performance with electrical discharges in the lead role and safely electrify yourself to up to 20,000 volts. If you like challenges, check out the Thinkatorium. Equipped with the necessary materials, you can build a bridge or a flying vehicle.

Don’t miss the Robotic Theatre. The humanoids appearing in the play are able not only to speak and gesticulate, but also express feelings.
Be sure to go to the Planetarium of the Copernicus Science Center and see the amazing shows.
