  • A great outing for adults as for children. Price correct €20 for a family of 4. With fun workshops. Everything is done so that we can test everything. Rooms: the optical effect, the perception of the dangers, more rooms for small... Fantastic! Animators are if necessary to help us manipulation, to tell and explain different things. We went a little late so not enough time to explore everything. So allow at least 2 hours of visit. The Pavilion closes at 18: 00 at this time of the year. Again!

  • Worth a visit, especially if they a day not on the road would be, here you can spend a day, the children are (usually) not enough. Wonderful technical experiments imperceptibly pass the time. A but is very important to understand, should you be of the Portuguese does not speak, little more than English basic knowledge is absolutely necessary if you want to be really successful. Their children will like it.

  • 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
