  • Museum visited thanks to one ticket with the University of Coimbra. Is small but nice, you are immersed in the midst of the animals! Houses part related to physics, with tools for experiments, and another connected to nature, with real animals.

  • Great optics exhibits. A very hands on approach to learning some basic principles of light. We visited with a pass that included entrance to the library which made it a reasonable deal. The museum itself we went through pretty quickly.
  • The first part covering chemistry/Atomic physics is very entertaining even for professionals. Especially the wave and light demonstrations are awesome. The natural history part of the exhibition lacks structure.
  • An interactive museum with a broad coverage of the light-matter theme. However, some exhibits were not functional, while others could benefit from more detailed explanation.
  • This is a Nice little museum in the university of Coimbra. It is a bit small but also has some halls in the building across the street. Most of the experiments have English descriptions. In the other building its mostly a natural history museum with stuffed animals and physics organs.
  • Nice big space near the university campus. We had fresh and tasty salads for lunch. Lots of students and like around. Good service.
