People traveling with their kids to Lisbon have plenty of alternatives in case keeping the little ones busy and active is a priority. The Children’s Museum is one of the venues not to be overlooked by families spending their vacation in the capital of Portugal.

The Museum opened in 1994, but its initial headquarters was changed, such that at present the museum is located within the perimeter of the Zoological Garden of Lisbon. The mission of the venue is prominently instructive, aiming to stimulate and to make children curious to discover, in a fun and interactive way, fields and subject matters like history, environment, science and music. It is, without a doubt, a valuable stop on the sightseeing tour of Lisbon, given the utmost lesson the little ones are highly likely to be taught is learning can be a pleasurable pursuit.
