Great hands-on projects for kids of all ages and a maker section. We especially liked the disease exhibit. Our only complaint, which is pretty common in science museums is that a... More

This is the best science museum we have been to (and we have been to a few). We all (adults and kids) loved it. It is really hands on and interactive, with things for all ages. We spent four happy hours there and only left then because it was getting late. It was also only 20 euros for a family... More

We had planned to spend a couple of hours here and ended up staying over four hours, until the place closed. The museum has lots of interactive installations showing and explaining fun facts about Earth, our bodies, physics, nutrition, biology and more. There are also many areas dedicated to children and kids (ie the Construction site for children only, for... More

Our eight year old daughter loved it here, especially making a marble run. I'd go back again. Easy access and storage lockers made things easy.

This exhibit is for all ages and allows visitors to discover at their own pace. I took my grandchildren who loved the construction site, the gravity experience and the brain exercises. We so net an entire morning there, left for lunch and the boys wanted to return in the afternoon for a couple more hours.

Staying in Parque das Nacoes

Neighborhood Profile
Parque das Nacoes
This neighborhood was built up at the end of the 1990s mostly because of the Expo '98. The pavilions and structures that once were the home of all the Expo's attractions and exhibits are still culturally and artistically significant. In Parque das Nações you'll explore conference and concert pavilions, a shopping center, trendy restaurants and an enjoyable cable car ride you can't miss out on. On top of this, the amazing Lisbon Oceanarium (one of the most spectacular things you'll ever see in the city) will take your breath away: its respect and will to preserve natural wildlife is uncanny. Easily accessible by metro, bus or taxi from the city center, Parque das Nações is highly recommended for anyone who'll spend more than 3 days in the Portuguese capital.
