  • One of the most fascinating places I've visited. I spent a few hours on it and learned a lot. The contrast between the old countertops centuries ago with interactive screens to let even more fascinating. There is still the old secular leaded glass chemistry lab.

  • A real world with artifacts of science and natural history that falls in love with children and adults. For being old, the collection is great and even has a whale skeleton, as well as species of birds, mammals, sea creatures, etc the physics room has artifacts from the 18th and 19th centuries very curious too and you can travel in the way he learned things at this time. Wait for the tour.

  • We went to a weekend to Coimbra and the truth, we had no intention of going to see many museums. But one of the companions had read that it was OK and others we put case. Luckily we conservábamos the entrance to the University on the day before and when removing the entrance to the Museum, we were told that we could get an extension which was cheaper. Two buildings are visited. In the first there are a lot of very interesting interactive activities. We were four adults without kids and had a great time. The second is a guided visit to the departments of physics, chemistry and natural sciences. They are very curious contraptions and a fairly large collection of stuffed animals. Certainly was a good idea.

  • A fantastic and rich University Museum dedicated to science. Very often there are activities to the general public and some especially for kids.
  • Very interesting science museum, in an old university building. Unfortunately some of the experiments were not working and needed to be fixed.
  • Adorei este museu. É dos melhores museus de Ciência que já visitei. Tem três partes fundamentais: a de química, não muito grande, mas ainda assim muito boa, a de física, que é a maior, onde são apresentadas diversas experiências, focadas especialmente na luz e também instrumentos utilizados antigamente nas aulas da Universidade de Coimbra, que é a mais antiga da Europa, aparecendo também diversas experiências em que são envolvidas roldanas. Por fim, a última parte é a de zoologia, em que aparecem milhares de animais empalhados, peixes e esqueletos, passando por diversas e variadas espécies de animais. Este museu é fantástico (pena não ter muita pubicidade) e qualquer pessoa que venha a visitar Coimbra também deve de o visitar.
  • Not surprisingly the positives sn of local guides ... coimbra is beautiful nn bother cn this museo...se so you can define! Experiments only suitable in elementary schools ... appreciable counters and vintage instruments.
