Great for Kids, but not for Toddlers!

Great "museum". It isn't a museum at this point. Kids can try out different things, and learn something about physics, the human body, sports and different occupations. They can... read more

Great "museum". It isn't a museum at this point. Kids can try out different things, and learn something about physics, the human body, sports and different occupations. They can do everythings by theirselves and the nice staff is always there to help out. But it's nothing for toddlers. My 2-year old had fun, but always took things and ran away.... More

I take my kids here at least once a year, and we always spend a couple of hours having a great time. Some exhibitions are permanent, and some are temporary, so there is always something new to check out, and old favourites to revisit. The staff and volunteers are great, and add a lot to the experience. This time we... More

I can't believe I'm saying this, but my child and I spent 4 1/2 hours here, which is a world record in terms of keeping his attention. I can't say enough great things about this spot – I'm so glad we carved out an afternoon to enjoy ourselves. Many of the activities were geared towards older children but that didn't... More

Take your kids and enjoy all the interesting activities. They have permanent exhibitions and temporary ones, but it's always been a great experience, even if a little pricey.

We are a family of 2 adults and 3 kids (aged 12, 10 and 7). We all enjoyed an afternoon at the Pavilhao do Conhecimento. We had been there the previous year, but there had been quite a few changes, which kept everyone entertained. So much info and lots of hands-on activities. It was good to see most things had...

Could write so much about the fun activities that there are to do here , but the other reviewers have said it . I would allow yourself a minimum of 2 hours and even then you could be there the whole day. What a great interactive museum for all ages. The children are 5,8,11 and all had an enjoyable time...

These interactive science museums are always nice to visit. The museum is more than large enough to give a feeling of calmth, even when it's running full of children. The museum is a tiny bit outdated and traditional compared to some incredible new ones like La Coruna, but kids don't care about that. Also as a grown-up, you can really... More

Staying in Parque das Nacoes

Neighborhood Profile
Parque das Nacoes
This neighborhood was built up at the end of the 1990s mostly because of the Expo '98. The pavilions and structures that once were the home of all the Expo's attractions and exhibits are still culturally and artistically significant. In Parque das Nações you'll explore conference and concert pavilions, a shopping center, trendy restaurants and an enjoyable cable car ride you can't miss out on. On top of this, the amazing Lisbon Oceanarium (one of the most spectacular things you'll ever see in the city) will take your breath away: its respect and will to preserve natural wildlife is uncanny. Easily accessible by metro, bus or taxi from the city center, Parque das Nações is highly recommended for anyone who'll spend more than 3 days in the Portuguese capital.
