  • Museum required for a family visit. Interesting attractions for children, especially the areas destined for mathematics and physics. Admission to R$ 80 for adults and with half for students and teachers. Some attractions with maintenance problems, but nothing that would harm the visit.

  • Firstly, you pay $30 for adults and $15 for students. Also, $20 for parking if you stay around 3 to 4 hours (borderline ridiculous!). Secondly, it's called a museum of sciences and technology, but the forgot to add "20 years ago" to the name. I literally have been to the museum 20 years ago and it is 90% the same... Very disappointing for an institution that is incredibly rich. It's administration abandoned the place, which has 20% of the exposition with an "out of order sign" and outdated knowledge, for example, the tongue flavour region, which has been debunked for ages. Nothing is new or amazingly interesting. Most interactive stands are good old physics or mechanics based. If you're under 10, it's awesome because you can touch stuff. If you're an adult, it's sadly outdated. I still cannot believe that they haven't changed most of it from 20 years ago. That's irresponsible. They should keep up with new technology and science knowledge that is always being updated. So, yes, take the kids, but then write an email to the administration asking for them to stop sipping martinis, get their act together and fix that museum. It's a great place and this town deserves to have it. In summary, I was disappointed because I grew up going to that museum and could see the decline of it. You may not think it's that bad, besides the parking, which is not fair. I recommend going once... and that's it.
