A thrilling and extraordinary event which brings us closer to well-known and loved fairy tales. Snow White – Garden of Lights is the second edition of the light exhibition in the Science Garden in Kraków.

After the huge success of the previous edition of the Garden of Lights – Alice in Wonderland, which charmed almost 300,000 visitors in 2021 with its magic atmosphere, the same location will once again shine with hundreds of thousands of lights.

This time, we are taken on a light trip to an incredible world created by the Grimm brothers – the magical land of Snow White and the dwarfs. In the fairy-tale forest created by us, visitors start their adventure from a magic apple and as they pass through the entrance gate in the form of a giant book, they go on a walk through the most important moments from Snow White’s story and the everyday life of the dwarfs.

The whole exhibition is located in a 10-hectare area of the Science Garden in Kraków. The scenery was supplemented by matching multimedia elements, such as: a tunnel and a multimedia Christmas tree, a light meadow, laser shows and multimedia vines.

The Garden of Lights, whose theme is the story of Snow White, is one of three open-air light exhibitions organised by us in the 2021/2022 season. Each of them was inspired by a different timeless story and designed so as to correspond to the local flora and landscape. The story, heroes who have lived in our imagination for years, and the setting of the place make each Garden special and one of a kind.

For whom: for children, for seniors, for families
Other: open air event, acceptable for people with disabilities

Stanisław Lem Garden of Experiences

Park Lotników Polskich, al. Pokoju 68

Reopened on 22 April 2022.

An ideal place for the youngest experimenters among us who feel the need to test “how it all works” hands on. The Garden of Experiences has its patron in Stanisław Lem, and is a perfect place to learn the laws of nature by experiencing things directly, i.e. learning them with one’s own senses. Learning through entertainment stimulates the imagination and sensitivity of the visitor. 110 devices demonstrating phenomena from an array of fields, including mechanics, optics, hydrostatics, magnetism, and acoustics, are gathered on a space of around 6 ha (15 acres), their number includes Newton’s cradle, a honeycombed labyrinth, a voicepipe, stone xylophone, a kaleidoscope, a prism, and a whirlpool. Besides all those, the garden features two exhibitions: the geological Geo-gródek and the sensory Zapachowo, plus Lem-birynt: a green labyrinth with quotations from Stanisław Lem.

All the devices are presented in the Polish Aviators’ Park in the open air, which is why the Garden of Experiences is only open in summer (from April to October).

Tickets: PLN 15/13, family PLN 44
