Pavilhao do Conhecimento- Ciencia Viva, Lisbon

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. Take the guesswork out of planning a Lisbon vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • We went 2 times!! The kids loved it so much, we had to go back. Is an amazing place, where they can test the science of fact.

  • The place is suitable for children and young people who want to learn about science. If you are an adult and you will get there without children, a place you might find boring. Angry Birds theme was highlighted, perhaps a bit too much.

  • I loved the space very interactive with adults and children not to be missed in this beautiful park parallel to the Tagus River.

  • Went here with ym partner, 9 Euro entry each which was an absolute bargain for the amount of time we spent there. The whole place is very "hands-on" and encourages using the exhibitions. Each exhibit had a card in Portugese and English explaining what it is, how to work it and what outcomes to look for. When we went there was a big centre sponsered by Angry Birds which was fun, again everything interactive and very attentive staff who helped if they saw we were struggling.
  • If you're in Lisbon wirh your children this is a place to go! Lot's of fun and chance to learn new things.
  • It was amazing! The exeriments were surprising and very entertaining. Everybody was speaking english. It is a great experience even for adults too.
  • Quite disappointing as the museum is actually only interesting and suited for children. No adult will feel engaged. We found the entrance of the museum vastly more interesting than anything we found inside. Tip: try the suspended bicycle!
  • Don't go there if you don't have kids! It's nothing except a huge playground for kids so don't waste 9€ on that
