  • I can't speak for the gardens because they were closed for maintenance when I visited but the building on the inside is poorly kept. Very few of the exhibits are interesting (these are good fun admitt...  more »
  • The Museum is very interesting and very diverse activities and exhibitions. Has several physical experiments and an old beautiful lab.

  • We had a whole climb done to these gardens to visit and when we finally proved that there were closed due to renovation work. This was nowhere announced and the agent to whom we asked the way, said he definitely was still open.

  • It was a good museum, loved the chemistry teaching rooms. The exhibition about the wild animals that was on at the time was lovely, I really loved that they're trying to make people understand how important they are. The minerals collection is amazing, I saw a lot of things I never saw before. As for the stuff I didn't like: most of the things are written in portuguese and some of the things should be a bit updated.
  • Great museum. Best part was the old style lab and theater. There is so much to see in there, shame the botanic garden was shut for renovation. Only downside was that some of the exhibitions are in Portuguese only. It's fine by me but for other foreigners not so much. Because of this I am giving it a 4 stars but still worse visiting it. I highly recommend it. If you are around in Lisbon do visit this museum.
  • You wont believe your eyes with all you see there. Beautiful old gadgets you can try, games 2 play, old labs and amazing rooms. Enjoyed it very much. There is A LOT 2 see there. When you go, take your time.
  • Don't spot a dinosaurus, becuz it was feeding time. Great cool, little spot inside Lissabon.
  • Cons: Only a fraction of the exhibitions features English explanations. Pros: Very interesting exhibitions. The museum also has student discount , 3 euro pr. Student.

Where to stay in Lisbon

Check into one of Lisbon's grand city center hotels to position yourself well to explore the central historical districts on foot. To avoid the potentially high prices of some of the Old Town's central upscale hotels, try staying in a hostel instead. While some hostels have an upper age limit for their guests, they're affordable and oftentimes offer access to attractions on par with or better than bigger hotels. In the upper town, opt for one of the family-run bed and breakfasts, which provide affordable rooms and, as the name would suggest, include a meal as well.
