“Good family fun-nice change”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2014

The science museum in Lagos is great value at only €6 for a family of 4. We enjoyed 2 hours of educational fun. Lots of hands on exhibits. Kid's (age 7 & 5) favourite was sending semaphore messages to the adults! Well worth a visit to break up a day and as a great alternative to the beach and pool.

“Excellent value and way to spend time out of sun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

If I recall it was about 6 euro for 2 adults and 1 child, almost all of the exhibits are fun and hands on to engage the children, our son is 8 and loved it, especially the pirate ship outside and the semaphore exhibition. Go to the third floor of the fish market and the entrance to the museum can be found there, great views over Lagos too! We spent 2-3 hours here and would recommend, the staff are on hand and very helpful.

“A Must See!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

If you go to the Algarve you need to visit Lagos. This is a lovely quaint little town with a nice harbour. It's really clean - some lovely little shops and restaurants. We didn't spend enough time there because we were on a trip but would definitely go back. It's got charm and well worth a visit.
