Overview
More
Located in a Victorian-era structure reminiscent of Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, Catavento Cultural is chock-full of interactive, hands-on exhibits and educational activities for children. Subjects covered include space, wildlife, geography, the human body and society. They are presented in action-filled, engaging fashion for the little ones. The surrounding neighborhood can be a bit sketchy, so taking a cab is recommended.

Catavento is not a modern sophisticated museum, but it is great to spend time with the kids there. The Chemistry lab is a lot of fun and so are some of the "reserved" activities - reserve them as soon as you arrive.

Se tiver tempo, recomendo deixar para comer no Mercado Municipal, que fica do outro lado da avenida do Estado. São 10 minutos de caminhada. Você aproveita e conhece dois ícones de São Paulo no mesmo dia.
