    It was a disappointment. Sorry but this museum its old and not well presented. 4th floor (dinosaurs) is the only thing worth it.

    Sensacional! Vale muito a pena. Uma dica é vir pela manhã que é bem mais tranquilo. Venha sem bolsas ou mochilas se possível, eles pedem pra abrir na entrada.

    My absolute favorite museum in the city. Try to get to an after-hours party if you can: the museum is even cooler when it's empty.

    You can spend days in here easy. Be warned we went on a whim with our luggage and even thought giant strollers are okay any luggage is not. The web site does says this but now in an easy spot.
