Huge place! Spent 2 hours, could spend 3-4hours easy! Lots of interesting stuff to see and do. Only thing is, if you don't know how to speak Portuguese, you won't get the full experience. Only few things was translated to English. Seems pretty weird.

Excellent choice to introduce kids to science and history. The museum covers a lot of science fields, from biology to astronomy. As a plus, they offer several interacting experiments that kids (of all ages...) get thrilled.

It is the best natural science museum in Porto Alegre in a pleasant setting, away from the city center and belongs and is maintained by a university. It is not of international standards or significance but it is rather well organized and it is safe to visit. I would recommend it to anyone interested in this sort of theme and... More

It´s a great museum, where kids can play and learn in a funny way -- mainly Physics and Math. And even grown ups too! I spent a whole afternoon there I couldn´t get tired. Take your children there and you´re gonna feel like a kid too.

If you like science, are curious , and cherish touch and move the things , the museum is interactive : you experience things . In Porto Alegre, it is a must-see location. Conceived and created by Professor Jeter Bertoleti , is considered one of the best in the world .

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
