If you go to the Algarve you need to visit Lagos. This is a lovely quaint little town with a nice harbour. It's really clean - some lovely little shops and restaurants. We didn't spend enough time there because we were on a trip but would definitely go back. It's got charm and well worth a visit.

Nice outdoor playground where the kids can play and learn at the same time. Shade and nice view also. The boys (3&7) loved it. You need 2 hours or more.

Pretty and interesting little town with lovely winding streets and plenty of nooks and crannies. Historic aspect is great, but there are also lots of shops and restaurants.

Enough to keep you and kids occupied for a couple of hours. Well thought out exhibits but not all working. Slight impression of an employment scheme as plenty of staff available to demonstrate and explain; but (and it maybe because into such things as sailing and navigation) not much depth. Completely weird Woman patrolling lower area of ship and associated... More

The science museum in Lagos is a great (and inexpensive) way to spend an hour of so with kids. We were looking for an alternative to beach and pool so visited the museum during our holiday last week. The exhibits are a mixture of simple hands on fun and more complicated concepts for older kids. The staff were very friendly... More

We went after seeing reviews on Tripadvisor and this place sits on the third floor above the fish market. It was very cheap to get in (6 Euros for a family of four) and there were plenty of staff on hand to show the kids what to do with any of the exhibits if they needed it. We loved the... More

Great to give the kids a break from the pool and the get to learn something also. Great tour exercises the mind with puzzles and lot of information. Make sure you go it's up over the fish market just get the lift.

Took a visit to this attraction in March 2013 on a dull coldish day. For 4E ( 2 adults and one child - £3.60 all in) we had a guided tour of all the exhibits and was shown in great detail how to complete each task. The guides never left our side, all spoke english. There are interactive tasks for... More

Not much more to add to other reviews, and would totally agree that it's a hidden treat and the ideal way to pass a couple of hours on a rainy or dull day. We went on the day we were returning home. As our flight wasn't until the evening, and it was raining, we popped in for a look. We... More

Excellent centre. Helpful staff, and really a bargain at 5euros for a family! Interactive exhibits, views of the harbour and a lovely building. Go into Lagos Market Hall and take the lift or stairs. Went in to fill an hour on a showery day; spent two hours with all family engrossed ( a 7 an 11 and us).
