Get a glimpse of the local and national science engagement scene! The Nocturne will be taking place at the Hall of Biodiversity and the surrounding Botanical Garden and will combine science, art and gastronomy.

Take this opportunity to visit The Hall of Biodiversity, explore the Botanical Garden by night and engage with the Natural History and Science Museum of the University of Porto and Ciência Viva teams.

The Hall of Biodiversity is located in Casa Andresen, a 19th century house that once was the family home of Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen, one of the most important Portuguese poets and children books author. Its brand new exhibitions celebrate the diversity of life, connecting the arts with biology and natural history, fostering a wide range of carefully crafted sensorial experiences.
