  • It is a must-see in the city of Bogotá, very interesting. 3D dome is the best! real 3D, feels not like in other rooms

  • You go or not with young children always will be a good plan to remember what you already know, learn new things or just interact and play for a while as a child.

  • Excellent option to visit family with children and adolescents. There are demonstrations or physics laboratories to interact.

  • The people who work there is awesome. In contrast with similar museums in other countries where children run randomly from one display to another, the guides provide structure and give great explanations. Highly recommended.
  • Best science center in Bogotá. Just the interactive exhibits are good for 3-4 hours of fun and learning. Most exhibits are text heavy of you don't speak Spanish, but you can still get a lot of enjoyment by just experiencing the museum. The cafeteria is also very good and inexpensive.
  • Not the best kid friendly activity in the city. Most of it already looks old.
  • Went for Google Cloud OnBoard, nice place to hanging out.
  • Beautiful and interesting place to know more about technology and the universe

Where to stay in Bogota

Many visitors to Bogota stay in La Candelaria, a colonial-era neighborhood in the city center where you can find plenty of decent hostels and mingle with tourists from around the globe. Staying in this area also puts you within walking distance of the city's major museums and best nightlife options. If you prefer to sleep in a quieter area and visit this busy district during the day, consider accommodations in the northern section of the city, which includes the upscale neighborhood Zona T.
