A few steps from Lisbon’s Oceanarium in Parque das Nações, the interactive Pavilion of Knowledge offers an innovative model for science learning.
It combines exhibits with hands-on science activities for kids. Small scientists can have fun experiencing the gravity on the moon, constructing electric circuits, and defying the laws of gravity on a highwire bicycle 6 metres above the ground.
Pavilhão do Conhecimento was one of the most popular pavilions during the Expo98 event. One year later, it opened as a science centre in Lisbon.
There’s a Café Ciência offering affordable lunch menus.
