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

This small science museum above the market is well planned out and will interest kids who enjoy working things out. Very cheap 6 Euros for family.

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!!!

I was not expecting much after arriving in the city near the marina, but walk one block into the town of Lagos (pronounced Lagosh) and you will find narrow, winding "pedestrian roads" that have many shops and restaurants. Unfortunately, one of the best next to the old slave market that is being rebuilt, was closed. We walked to a small... More

Useful way to spend a couple of hours. €6 for 2 adults & 3 young kids.. Great value. Interesting ways to appreciate early technology & a couple of fun ways (lighthouse, garden & ship) for it to finish off too. Closed on Monday (might be worth knowing)

We went with a 2 year old and a 5 year old on a Saturday afternoon in mid-April and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We were the only people in the whole place so no waiting to have a go on anything. Exhibits were very good and could be enjoyed by a wide range of ages, including 2 year olds, with... More
