Create an itinerary including Pavilhao do Conhecimento
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.

  • We had a massive 2 hours of out of this for both our 3-year-old and 8-year-old as well. They can touch and try everything, sometimes by the help of the staff, but there were plenty of them...

  • A very interesting museum, where the kids and adults can understand, touch and see most of the science theory and explanation. It has four main halls, regarding the age. The price for the family is 28 EUR and we had a lot of fun. Recommend it,
  • I love this place almost as much as my 5-year old! It is informative, fun and perfect for the 'Why? Why? Why?' age...She was there for a friend's birthday first, and because she was so excited we also went again on 16 May when it was free entrance for Scientist Day. I understand they have a number of free tickets available everyday, but I would easily pay the ticket price for the experience gained...
