Went here for the morning with our 11 year old son. He loved it . The interactive exhibits were great and really gave him an understanding of the world , how if came about how we came about and how we have explored and developed it . A fantastic place fit for any capital city .

This is a well put together Science Museum, with lots of learning but fun experiences for both kids and parents. It is a bit far away from the center, but well served with buses and mini buses. If you are a party of 4, it is worth a taxi. Ifat weekdays or Saturday do go and have lunch at the... More

It's a cool place to visit, if you're into science, technology or dinosaurs. It's located in the campus of the Catholic University of RS, which also worth a visit.

You may interact with almost everything that is shown. The museum is very didactic, and it a must see with children.

It is a permanent exhibit under constant renewal, with lots of attractions spanning many fields, including biology, technology, history, geography, physics (the main one), and more. And most of it is interactive: you are supposed to touch it, try it, see how it works, like a scientific... More

The trip was spoilt by some misinformation regarding the last time for the dinosaur outside to roar. They said 6pm when it was actually 5pm. That wasn't the problem though. The problem was the attitude of the receptionist who made zero effort to take our feedback and disappointment as something that should be of concern to the museum. That was... More

Entertaining, and if you have kids they will have fun and enjoy it. I particularly liked the physics exhibits... in many of them I had to got back to my college physics to figure out the reason for what was happening. Had a great time.
