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.

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
