It's rather an average, if not worse, museum of this type. We visited two similar science museums in other European cities and the Lisbon museum is a clear backmarker. There were basically one room with interactive experiments, one room (the ground floor) dedicated to dogs...More

We were told about this place in Lisbon but were a bit sceptical as not many science museums are hands on. This one was not only hands on but full body experience. My eldest daughter loved laughing herself into the pig to knock it down....More

We spent an entire afternoon here; far more than we anticipated, but it was that good. We loved the numerous illusions and that you are actually encouraged to take photos. Where else do you get to ride a bicycle like a circus performer? Even the...More

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
