There aren't many places like this in the region, it is a great program for kids on rainy or cold days, you can spend the whole day (and even get out to have lunch and then come back). Highly recommended!

It's very interesting! Children and young people can be challenged to interact and learn scientific theories by experience. There is an excellent and cheep all-you-can-eat restaurant in the building.

If you like science, it's a must see atraction. The place is huge with a lot of things to do and see, so you'll spend at least 3-4hours in it. A lot of the atractions are interactive, so if you have kids, they'll have tons of fun.

One of the very few 'interactive museums' in Brazil and with a lot of useful and reliable information about almost everything: the human body, our ancestors, dinosaurs, natural phenomenos - volcanos, earthquakes, planets and so on. A must see to adults, kids, teenagers, families and friends

The museum has a lot of different science exhibits. It does take time to go through them all. I would recommend about 3 hours. With children it might take even longer as they linger at ones that they particularly like. The exhibits are interactive but do require thought.
