The buildings are nice, and we have been coming here over the years with the ecpectations that the building will get more content. Unfortunatly it's the opposite. Now there is just half a floor with exhibitions left. There are some scientific objects for kids to play with outside, but not in the shadow. So it would be better to come... More

Just a special building. Another one of those from the architects of the 1960ties inspired by the 1960 "grandeur" of the communists.

The top of this multi-purpose center offers great views of the Ponto das Seixas and Cabo Branco beach, and the center often has good exhibits of photographic, scientific and historical significance. Some evenings there are also concerts--either inside one of the buildings or outside under the stars.

Certainly a must visit for architects or for extreme design lovers, 15 to 20 minute walk from the beach it is situated on the upper plane of Cabo Branco overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, it's a good idea to get information from your hotel or on the net as to what is on show. Sometimes there are very good music performances,... More

We didn't have enough time to spend at this city. However, I could see that the city is full of historical and architectural places. Also beautiful beaches. Bad the day we were there was raining. I hope came back one day and explore in detail.

Please note that Estação Ciências and Estação Cabo Branco is the same thing! If you stay at a hotel on Cabo Branco beach, it's a nice walk to this building along the beach. Just follow the road. There are no signs but you can't miss it. I only saw the first floor exhibition, and it was nothing special, but the... More

It worths for who loves architecture and Niemeyer's work. However the exhibitions over there are not attractive. It may be a good thing to do in a rainy day. Otherwise, stay on the beach...

This place was projected by the architect Oscar Niemeyer, the same that did Building of the UNO, the Brasilia City, the MAC in Niteroi, Univ. Constantine in Argel, etc. In this complex works small expositions. It has free parking.

Here you can understand why Brazilians adore their best architect ever: Oscar Niemeyer. It looks as a spaceship, with different expositions inside, awesome views of the city and beaches, experiments going around by students and beautiful place.

It is a "OK" place to go. It is the nearest point to the African continent in the South American continent. It's also called as "Cabo do Seixas" (in portuguese). It worths a visit of no more than 40 minutes.
