A nice little place

Good value for money at 3 euros per adult. Science museum concentrating on navigation and exploration due to its situation Lagos. Nice gardens as well. Definitely worth a visit.

We went to get out of the rain. It doesn't take long to go round and wasn't of much interest to us. I can see that it would be interesting to smaller, inquisitive children though.

In a wonderful location, with great views, you'll find this small but amazing science museum, which can add a little bit of fun and learning to your beach vacations. Kids and grown-ups also will enjoy all the interactive activities!

At 6 Euros in for a family of 4 this place is worth it for the outdoor play areas alone, our kids (7 and 4) loved it, great views as well, you will have the place virtually to yourself as well as no one seems to know about it. There is exhibitions about navigation, sailing, submarines and stuff for kids... More

This is a very attractive small science museum in central Lagos with modern architecture which reflects the beautiful location and its sweeping views of the marina and avenida. We went with a 6 year old and a 14 year old and both enjoyed the hands-on displays. But I do think some of the indoor displays may need the help of... More

Had fun kidding around in the museum. It's a nice cheap activity and useful for avoiding the midday sun. At 3€ per adult, you can definitely justify a visit.

This museum is tucked behind the main streets and is well worth a visit (we spent approx 1.5 hours there but there is no rush to leave if you want to take longer). It is very good value for money. As well as information about each exhibit in Portugese and English, there are also plenty of enthusiastic members of staff,... More

Located up behind the fish market, the Science Museum is a hidden gem. Very cheap entry but with plenty to keep the kids entertained. Information on the early explorers, interactive exhibits and a great little outside area with fantastic views. Well worth a visit whilst touring the streets.

Our 2 daughters loved this museum and it was great fun. Lots of interactive things to do and lots to learn about. A fantastic family day out for the tiny price of €6 for the family!!!
