November 5, 2015 marks the 5th anniversary of the opening of the Copernicus Science Centre. These past five years have been a time of joy, surprises and opportunities to learn: we have found out a lot about our visitors; we have been improving the Centre on an ongoing basis; and now we are on the eve of bigger changes that have been planned for the whole exhibition space in the coming months. We have also had a chance to learn a lot about the Centre, which allowed us to identify our social role and determine our organisation’s identity.
