  • We love visiting the Pavilion of knowledge but our 7-year-old daughter didn't enjoyed too. We don't know if there is no monitors to explain, or if the issues there shown are not yet appropriate for her age. We observe that as we passed, again, by one of the rooms, where there was a monitor who explained, she enjoyed it more. Worth it but if your children don't like much science, or you have doubts if they curtirão, rethink. Appropriate location for days of rain or cold.

  • We love! Whenever we go to Lisbon, we take a short time in the Pavilion of the knowledge of the Parque das Nações. Is fun for the children and for those older. Are we passed the time flying between experiments, explanations and evidence. Best of all is that children can try without problems and touch him almost everything. We repeat, safe

  • 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
