Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The Copernicus Science Museum in Warsaw is an exhilarating journey through the wonders of science. With interactive exhibits that captivate both young and old, it's a thrilling exploration of the universe, from astronomy to robotics. Engaging, educational, and utterly inspiring, it's a must-visit destination for anyone curious about the marvels of the cosmos.

    Really good museum. Lots of armoured vehicles such as tanks, self-propelled guns, support vehicles and even military aircraft all lined up tightly together across the grounds of an old 19th century fortress. If you like your 20th century military history, you will be in your element here. In fact, it feels a little like a armoured storage depot.

    Many of the former are from the Second World War and Cold War eras, the latter being particularly evident for the planes. These can all be seen outside (a few are covered by tarpaulins), so I recommend if visiting in the cooler months to bring a jacket. Off to the side along the roadway one can see various defensive weapons such as fortification guns, heavy artillery guns, anti-tank guns and so fourth. There are even cut out sections from captured German Armour which help examine the thickness of armour and interior layout.

    On arrival, you met with the main gate and a ticket machine. You can purchase the ticket for admission here and then are left to browse round at your leisure. Less mentioned on several reviews however is that there is an indoor section to this museum.

    This is housed within the fortress. Inside are various vehicles and objects relating to the early development of the Polish army and its actions following the First World War and during the Second World War. It is small by comparison to the overall site, but is heated, and well worth looking round as some objects inside are really quite rare. Information text inside are provided in Polish and English, but do not expect the same outside. Some of the vehicles lined up in the compound have either no information about them, and those that do have it in Polish.

    A small part of the site is gated off. Apparently this is for military reasons, another being that active vehicle workshops are in use.

    I spent about 2-3 hours here, and was well worth the admission price to get in! If you like your 20th century military history, or engineering, you are bound to love it here.

    This is the kind of museum that will appeal only to certain people. The do have a wonderful display of rocks, minerals, fossils and amber. If this is the type of thing that interests you, I would strongly encourage you to visit. Otherwise, you will probably be bored after a brief walk-through of the displays.

    Amazing to fill in some gaps in our knowledge of post war Europe and learn more about the eastern block countries who were unofficially under Soviet control. The museum host was so knowledgeable and passionate about sharing this incredible story.
