This interactive science museum is next to the Oceanarium. Go on a rainy day and expect to stay a full day, as the kids will be fascinated by the expos and play areas. It's for young kids (the construction play site), older kids and adults. In the Doing section kids can try at least 8 different activities (like making a... More

Very interesting and useful museum for the kids of any age (including adults as well, actually). Different physical cases with their explanations and funny games.

It is a great place for curious and intelligent people of all ages to spend several hours. Wonderful for kids, with different experiments and information for different ages, it won't disappoint grown-ups (unless your brain has given up on learning).

Clearly intended for kids, but nevertheless interesting for all ages, features a hall that demonstrates interactively how rainbows and tornadoes are formed, reflections, optical illusions, physics and other brainy subjects. Also, the lady that walked around explaining how to interact with the objects was very friendly.

The mind / mental health section was very interesting and lived the virtual reality "scared of heights" experience. At the end we spent an hour making 2 pairs if shoes!! Made of 3 sections, straps and all! Bit of... More

This place is amazing. We had thought that we would go for 2-3 hours and then take the children (age 11 and 9) on the hill tram after lunch, but we were so enchanted by the science museum that we stayed from 11am until 5pm, with a quick break for lunch. And we still only had time to go to... More

It is full of wonderful interactive experiences that keep children and adults fascinated, intrigued and challenged for hours. On the day we visited, there was a special exhibition on mental health with a number of hands-on exhibits demonstrating different aspects of mental... More
