  • Take your kids and enjoy all the interesting activities. They have permanent exhibitions and temporary ones, but it's always been a great experience, even if a little pricey.

  • Great exemple of modern architecture, stunning building, with an experiment laboratory and science playground for children. However, part of The exhibition space was close.
  • Beautiful peace of architecture where you can learn and take notice of the simple things that surrounds you. Nice place to spend one afternoon or even a day.
  • Great place to take your kids so they can learn about science. Very interactive and with exhibitions for (almost - I recommend older than 2) all ages.
  • Great place for everyone looking for more culture specially for children. Lots of activities as simple physics experiments.
