There are so many scientific experiences there to leverage curiosity and love for nature, science and physics. Excellent facilities, All students should go there at least one time. With so many things to see, one day is not enough. Don't worry with food, there are good restaurants for all preferences.

It's a very nice place to go, especially if you have children! It is very interactive so everybody gets a go at something. Some of the experiment tools you can see that are getting a bit old, but still all have their charm! Go calmly and set at least a whole afternoon or morning for this program. There is a... More

The museum is awesome, with its three floors and a half. The physics demonstrations are really accurate and accessible at the same time, and the biology and human body sections show some of the most importance experiments in the area and discoveries. However, adults who have already a background in intermediate science may find it a bit boring, for its... More

Don't miss it! It's got three floors, so save at least 4 hour for the visit. Parking is easy and there are good option for a snack.

3 floors of science stuff. I speak no more than 20 words of Spanish.... unfortunately there was very little English information. Having said that the displays were very good... and looked very informative (but not to me!). There were loads of kids there... and lots of interactive displays. Hmmm... maybe more kid-centric that adult-centric.

Hi Friends, We visited the museum with colleges and no kids but believe me, We all were kids inside. Talking about the physics theorems. Solving math puzzles. There is a gigantic pendulum oscillating and a gigantic clock. A seperate section for Physics / Chemistry/ Bio and Maths. It was fun! Don't forget to visit museum's shop. They sell very cool...
