Elaborated to awaken the curiosity and the taste for the sciences, they value the participation of the visitor who, when engaging in unusual and playful experiences, becomes the protagonist of their own learning. With interactive experiments and thematic exhibitions, the Museum is a unique space, full of fun and unusual experiences for visitors of all ages.

A place full of science on all sides. Difficult to see and experience everything. Excellent for children and teens to discover the world of scientific research, but also very interesting for adults by the intelligent, careful, modern and interactive way the exhibition is done.
