  • Science and history come together in a visit to 2 separate buildings. With a latest and interactive museologico spirit. Another, with the collections of taxidermy, physical and academic spaces. The tour despite take about 1 hour, gently broaches the topics. It should be noted that the Museum has a wonderful collection of minerals and rocks, not always open and where there are now more national examples.

  • Interesting ride to curious and lovers of science. The Museum takes you have chance to visit the original classrooms of Science (physics and chemistry). Where teachers and students went to the rooms next to pick up equipment for experiments. Has a vast collection of natural history.

  • To the Museum of the science is can access buying the input with which is comes to "all" of 12 euros or paying to part 5 euros, allowing you access to a part in which can see animals dissected as well as different skeletons. We first went to the part in which can try different experiments, learning of form manipulative, by what me seems very interesting to go with children. There is a balloon that rises to fill it with hot air, microscopes to view various materials (minerals, wings of butterflies), typical wheel of colors that are mixed to turn them... The highlight is certainly part of the stuffed animals. The guide explains broadly that they were part of the private collections of the University professors who, dying, donated it to it; as well as that some had a little "deformed" face since people who were in charge of dissecting them hadn't seen more than in drawings to the animal. See species of animals already extinct and all type of animals that today are in danger of extinction. To my personally gave me enough grief, you realize that human cruelty has no boundaries.

  • 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.
