With more than 288 exhibits divided into five categories, Papalote Museo del Nino hosts an educational zone for children to touch, play, and learn. Built in 1993, the museum educates children by having them interact with the exhibits available. Through the five different categories, children learn about sciences, math, and health, and how all things relate to them. Take time to watch one of the shows or IMAX educational videos that the museum offers. You'll find various options for lunch or dinner at the in-house food court.
