The Heavens of Copernicus Planetarium

seeexperience

Offer: Free with Warsaw Pass

The Heavens of Copernicus Planetarium (Planetarium Niebo Kopernika) is situated in the centre of Warsaw, right next to the Copernicus Science Centre. From the outside it resembles an enormous erratic block – you can enter through the southern doors near the Vistula River.
The Heavens of Copernicus is one of the most modern and original planetariums in Europe. The spherical screen is sixteen meters in diameter, surrounding the audience from all sides and giving the impression of immersion in the images on screen, which are astronomy shows and popular-science films. On Friday evenings we encourage music enthusiasts to take part in classical concerts, live jazz improvisation and laser shows under the stars*. Children, young people, adults – everyone will find something to please them in the repertoire.

Each of the films at the Heavens of Copernicus can be viewed in an English audio version by borrowing multimedia sets. The “Mars 3D” and “Planetarium of the wall” live show are not translated into English.

 Warsaw Pass entitles to SKIP THE LINE.

Warsaw Pass entitles to admission to 2D or 3D screenings for free.
Please note that admission depends on the availability of seats in the planetarium.
