  • Downtown, a classical monument and into which must be several hours and energy need to know. Entrance accessible price ($4) a museum divided into several sections in which not only the kids have fun! I loved the House devoting and museita! They have to enter =) totally recommended for children from 0 to 100 years!

  • Excellent place to go with kids, and teenagers, they will learn and enjoy very much, and we adults too.
  • Really funny and a great place to take your kids and have some fun
  • My 16 moths old baby had a lot of fun, we spent almost the entire day there. We took our own food, they only have one restaurant and its small and the service is slow, plus they don´t have a lot of variety.
  • Very nice to take the kids, great for family time
  • Nice place for the kis to have fun
