This museum is quite interactive and allows a friendly contact with the natural sciences. It is worth to plan to visit within a minimum of 2 hours (you should have no problem spending a whole afternoon playing around with the experiments).

The children stay all the day there and don't be tired. Big, modern, nice and funny museum. You can spend a good hours there.

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.
