A very interesting museum about life sciences. Not only things to look at, but also to do, touch, explore etc. When we were there they also had an exhibition about contagion. Well worth a visit, with or witthout kids.

Fun for kids of all ages from 3-93! Lots of hands on things to do. Near the oceanarium and within Parque das Naçoes which is in itself a nice place to visit.

Modern archictecture is all you'll be able to enjoy in this side of town, all recently constructed for Expo98, so don't expect historical landmarks. Trendy place, lots of cool bars, a big mall, cable cars with view of the sea and even an oceanarium.

We entered this place since we were in the area for the Oceanarium, but this museum is at least as interesting and entertaining! English language is catered for in the museum, there is an area especially designed for kids up to 8 years old and other area for older kids and adults. Highly enjoyable! You can easily spend 2 hpurs... More

We loved the doing room. Our 2 and 3 year old kids had loads of fun making hot air balloons to send up the wind chute. The eldest also had loads of fun in the pretend construction site.

It could use some modernisation and more interesting exhibition. There are way better science museums in the Europe. It also looked like some kids had no idea and didnt understand what to do there.

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.
