  • We like a lot because it has what a small wants, take my granddaughter and had a great time, drawing I talk about how to cure a pet touched a kitten, in short many activities. Highly recommended.

  • No doubt the best option for those who travel with children, a mix of learning and fun. Its projections and activities are excellent, we had destined to be there for 4 hours and we were almost to the close as the children did not want to leave. The only "but" is that it is missing to clean more often because in certain areas by the transit of the visitors it is noticed dirty.

  • This is a great place to visit. It’s a large well designed museum with lots of interactive displays and activities that kids of all ages will enjoy. The museum does a great job separating the spaces to ensure they are age appropriate. They cover many science disciplines. For those who don’t speak Spanish, you can still visit and enjoy. There are a limited number of English speaking staff but you will lose the ability to experience the cool science experiences.
  • One of the best museums for kids I have been. My son love it! The staff was very friendly and accomodating. It gets a bit crowed some times, so keep an eye on your kids!
