TONS to do -- the museum is huge and provided hours of fun. Most displays are in Portuguese, but even non-Portuguese speakers will find plenty to keep kids busy. Our girls are 10 and 8 and really enjoyed themselves -- we went straight to the 3rd floor and checked out all the Physics stuff (which works in any language). Note... More

I was surprised by the quality of this museum. It's rare to find educational activities to do with children in Brazil. There are many exhibits to choose from. We loved the electricity show!

I´ve been to dozens of museums all over the world but I have never seen one as interactive as this one. It is worth visiting, especially if you have kids. Gotta say that everything in the museum is in Portuguese.

This Museum is a perfect place for a practical introduction of Science to your kids. Along with experiences on Physics (Audio, Mechanics, Fluids, Gravity) there is also a permanent Natural History exhibit.

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.
