Science Museum Museum
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.

  • Great place. Was there some time ago and loved it. I recomend for all.
  • A must visit place in Lisbon. I love the fact that they have a lot of experiments for kids, and not just theory
  • Great place especially for children. Fun way to learn some things about science. Not too expensive.
  • Perfect for children. Specially for school trips. Fill with introductory games and exhibitions of science. For grown ups isn't that interesting. A bit expensive.
  • Nice Brasilian buffet in the cantina. The knowledge museum is nice for kids to learn easy different parts of technology
