“Science Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014

It's a cool place to visit, if you're into science, technology or dinosaurs. It's located in the campus of the Catholic University of RS, which also worth a visit.

“A museum with interaction possibilities”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014

You may interact with almost everything that is shown. The museum is very didactic, and it a must see with children.

“Very good museum, great for kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2014

The museum carries the same spirit of MoSi and other congeners around. A lot of fun and learning for kids and adults too.

“Awesome! A must for everybody!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014

From kids to adults, it is one of the best attractions in town! It is a permanent exhibit under constant renewal, with lots of attractions spanning many fields, including biology, technology, history, geography, physics (the main one), and more. And most of it is interactive: you are supposed to touch it, try it, see how it works, like a scientific playground. Save a whole day for your visit, there is a lot to see and do!

“Good museum but awful customer service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014 via mobile

The trip was spoilt by some misinformation regarding the last time for the dinosaur outside to roar. They said 6pm when it was actually 5pm. That wasn't the problem though. The problem was the attitude of the receptionist who made zero effort to take our feedback and disappointment as something that should be of concern to the museum. That was very aggravating. The receptionist in question really ought to sent on a customer service course soon. But museum is good and informative.
