Visitors will be able to admire Earth as if from the windows of the International Space Station in one of a host of interactive multimedia installations, experiments and hi-tech attractions.
About 150 different installations will be on offer to inquisitive minds.
"Our centre is to be a place where visitors... feel encouraged [to explore] various fields of science," said Michał Buława, director of the centre’s exhibition section.
The exhibition cost PLN 45.5 million (USD 12.5m, EUR 10.7m) to set up, of which over PLN 18.3 million has been subsidised by the European Union.
It is estimated that more than 430,000 people a year will visit the Łódź centre.
