One of the best places to visit with kids in Porto Alegre. It is full of interactive displays where you can learn about (or test your knowledge on) science. Each floor is dedicated to a different field, so it takes some time to go through it all. You can spend a whole day there. Use the university parking lot and... More

My experience at the Museu de Ciências e Tecnologia da PUCRS was one of pleasure and fulfillment. I had just been to the Science Museum in London, and was amazed at their concern with visitors' possibility of interacting with applied science concepts. I did not expect to find the same concern at PUC,, but was pleased to find I was... More

Considering that Brazil does not have a strong tradition in investing in museums, let alone ones focused on scientific events, I was wonderfully surprised to see that this technology musem lives up to my expectations, especially considering that I lived in NYC and have been several times to the various museums in the city. Kudos to the priests at PUCRS.
