Pavilhao do Conhecimento, Lisbon

Become a science expert in a single day by visiting Pavilhao do Conhecimento, an interactive museum of science and technology. This Pavilion of Knowledge, as its name translates, opened in 1999 with an objective to accumulate knowledge and stimulate the public's interest in scientific developments. The interactive activities allow you to learn by touching and becoming an active part of scientific experiments. Discover the laws of physics by attempting to ride a bicycle over a cable hanging 6 m (20 ft) in the air, or visit the museum's clinostat display to find out how plants grow in outer space. The award-winning museum building is one of the city's major architectural landmarks. Take the guesswork out of planning a Lisbon vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • It's far from the city, but for Japanese who are used to aquariums, this museum is also recommended. Even children who can't speak English very well or speak Portuguese can enjoy it enough.

  • A great time in this fun learning place! The exhibition on the intestines was very interesting and within reach of all. young and old with explanations in Portuguese, English and French. The rest of the visit is nice too. Price side: reasonable for this visit.

  • Very good place for kids. They have made it quite a lot of fun with some interesting games centred around science concepts. Our 4 year old daughter had a great time, although older children may be able to better experience the museum. Their staff is very nice and helpful too. One of the staff members was very nicely helping my daughter on a mini construction site. Although it is unlikely my daughter learnt any science skills, she surely came out thinking science is fun.
  • One of the best places for kids visiting Lisbon! Great fun for the whole family. The cafeteria is not working - bring your own food or you will have to go somewhere else to eat. I did not see a vending machine either.
