Five million visitors at the Copernicus Science Centre

Visitor number 5 million greeted by R. Firmhofer, Director of Copernicus science centre, Warsaw, Poland

Copernicus Science Centre in Warsaw, Poland, has been visited by as many as five million people for less than 5 years. Record holders come back to Copernicus more than 30 times a year.

Over a million guests each year is an extraordinary attendance rate, on a European scale. This great popularity is evocative of Polish society’s creativity and energy. Just as much as when the Copernicus’ doors opened for the very first time in November 2010, the institution still continues to offer its guests new, inspiring attractions. The exhibitions are like a living organism, continually evolving. New elements appear while existing ones are improved. They neighbour temporary exhibitions brought in from around the globe. There are new shows and attractions at the planetarium, workshops, lectures, visits of world-famous scientists and more. It is impossible to see all the attractions of the Copernicus Science Centre during just one visit. Those who found out that it is true come here on average a dozen (or so) times a year. They can join the Membership, a new programme, launched in June, for those who want to be closer to the Copernicus and have their everyday access to discoveries, experiments, and inspiration.

The 5-millionth guest, a student of the Warsaw Military University of Technology visited the Copernicus Science Centre on 29 July for the first time. Now, however, he can experience more and become a loyal visitor, as he received a Membership.
