  • A lot of disorganization in each station, there are no signs to be to line up, my son tried to line up alone and nothing else they ignored him and jumped him, because when I went to stand next to him to take turns, they said we had cut the line????? When he already had more than 5 minutes there... Also in the bed of nails there was no row, after we had 10 minutes there waiting and my son was already going up, the manager tells us that the line was on the other side, that we went to after fortunately, the other visitor saw that we had time there and n he let you through. I don't think I'd go back to this place.

  • 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!
