  • Very cool site next to the oceanarium. Many fun workshops for children and adults. Average duration of 1 h 30 for the visit. We finally spent 2.5 hours "testing" a large part of workshops/experiences available. A minimum of English (or Portuguese course!) to understand what there is to do, as well as for the explanations of the phenomena that we see. The whole family came out thrilled to this pavilion of knowledge.

  • Kids love the time you spend there, either by the experiences they can do, as with the entertainment, as for example the unfinished House

  • We had a great afternoon with my 2 boys 3 years and 2 years at the Pavilion d that knowledge. Upon entry into the Museum we loved the robot, the virtual harp, the table with chairs to show us that sees a child of 2 years. Special mention necessarily for the place or site there and where children can take small leaders work and play, from 3 years old,... Very good afternoon

  • 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.
  • This museum is very good and very interactive. You can spend one afternoon exploring the facilities. S
