Become a science expert in a single day by visiting Pavilhao do Conhecimento- Ciencia Viva, an interactive museum of science and technology. This Pavilion of Knowledge, as its name translates, opened in 1999 with an objective to accumulate knowledge and stimulate the public's interest in scientific developments. The interactive activities allow you to learn by touching and becoming an active part of scientific experiments. Discover the laws of physics by attempting to ride a bicycle over a cable hanging 6 m (20 ft) in the air, or visit the museum's clinostat display to find out how plants grow in outer space. The award-winning museum building is one of the city's major architectural landmarks.

  • Museum housed in a noble part of Lisbon and is beside the river Tagus (Parque das Nações). Museum with many experiences for youngsters. There's always a lot of variety of exhibits

  • Ideal place for an afternoon with kids. At that time the classic trips in the city begin to become boring to them. Dig too.

  • This museum is located in the Park of the Nations of Lisbon, about ten minutes walk from the station of the East. It is a very interactive science museum that is very entertaining for children. There is a room with a construction of a home activity for children up to six years, which put hull, used carts, cranes and pulleys... to place bricks of rubber foam as a bricklayer, and this activity I liked our son that made us come back another day to play again this. To me made me very funny seeing him in another activity that consisted of jump with a subject harness with gums from above, so I had the feeling of jumping with weightlessness, extending more than normal jump (this activity was for children of up to 25 kg). And there was many other things, like a car with square wheels, a harp that sounded without ropes, a robot that you alimentabas and was telling you the calories of each food that you gave him or an apparatus with which huge soap bubbles were made. We could not see everything offered the Museum because our son was entertaining two hours and what was not enough time to use it all. I had the idea that this museum might like to a five-year-old boy, but he could not imagine that it would be his best memories of our trip to Portugal. He is looking forward to returning to Lisbon to play in this pavilion. The entry is not cheap, but if you go with children it is worth entering. Daily closes at 18:00 and on weekends at 19:00. The Oceanarium prosimo closes at 20:00, so you can combine both visits without much problem.
