Experyment Science Centre

Experyment Science Centre in Gdynia is an interactive exhibition that offers education and creative entertainment. It is a modern scientific and educational playground for amateur explorers and the “learning through fun” philosophy followers of all ages. Each exhibition constitutes a unique opportunity to experience and understand common phenomena through simple, safe and amusing experiments. Visiting the Experyment is a marvelous opportunity to spend your time with family in a creative way.

Experyment Science Centre in Gdynia was proposed by the municipal authorities of Gdynia as part of the “creActiveNET” project financed by the INTERREG program, the Provincial Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management in Gdańsk, and the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management. It is one of the first science centres in Poland, and the first one in the region, to implement an innovative concept of promoting science through interactive exhibitions and educational activities.

The facility opened on 1st June 2007 in the Pomeranian Science and Technology Park. Initially, it was part of the Gdynia Innovation Centre, a budgetary unit of the Municipality of Gdynia. In March 2012, by the resolution of the Gdynia City Council, the Centre became a separate unit with the status of a local government’s cultural institution.

On 26th July 2010, the Pomeranian Science and Technology Park in Gdynia started an expansion project, including the construction of a new building for the Experyment Science Centre: a modern exhibition space combined with a conference centre.

The weekend of 7th–8th September 2013 saw Experyment’s grand opening of in the new setting. After two and a half years of development, the exhibition space increased sevenfold and gained laboratory rooms. In the first weekend, 5 000 people visited the new exhibition! In the following years, the Centre has presented numerous temporary exhibitions, expanded the permanent one and developed many new formats for educational, cultural and scientific activities.
