The thoroughly engaging Science Alive Centre in the Pavilion of Knowledge takes learning to a new level Ã¢Â€" a fun-packed, interactive one. Young minds will be working overtime at this extraordinary facility, which is crammed full of working modules and exhibits designed to extol the virtues of physics and science. For example, kids can explore Lisbon by following a scientific city guide. Afterwards they can visit a kitchen in which pots and pans have replaced test tubes and youngsters can find out more about molecular gastronomy, or how jam is preserved. The idea is to impart scientific knowledge in a safe and practical way. Here, children can make new friends while taking part in games, solving puzzles and understanding scientific concepts and phenomena. The technology used is simple and very hands-on. There's even a 'Science Kidding' area for 3-6 year-olds.
- Best for Things to Do with Kids Because: 'See, do, learn' is the motto here and the centre has over 40 different interactive exhibits designed specifically for kids.
- Best for Family-Friendly Museums Because: At the Pavilion of Knowledge-Science Alive centre children of all nationalities can learn about the scientific building blocks that bind the world together.
