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.

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.

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.
