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.

This amazing place offers an incredible variety of things to do concerning Sciences. It is very organized, very attractive for kids, teens, and adults. The parking lot is not free, but reasonable. There aren´t many options for eating, but the snacks are tasty.

It is a place that if you are in São Paulo you should go. But you need more than 1 day to visit every thing. In the physics room you will have a lot of fun. Don't miss it.

Wat a wonderful museum to visit! For adults and for children. Lots to see and do. Beautiful building. The only thing which was less: everything is in Portugese and not in English. Entrance for 2 adults and 2 children only 18 reais

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.
