  • This is a great children's interactive museum, but it is not a real tourism attraction. It is made and oriented for local kids to discover and enjoy.  more »
  • I went to this place since I was looking for some attraction for kids under 10 years old while he was by San Jose. To my surprise this place fulfilled the expectations and we could spend a very nice time where the family enjoyed and learned. Staff very friendly and always explain every detail. There are different stations or stops where children have fun and learn at the same time.

Museum itself was accessible to 8400 separate columns for 2 adults and 2 children. Once inside, there are many areas with various topics where we can/do not. In many areas are younger which can explain certain things. Unfortunately, many texts were only in Spanish, but despite that found our children a nice afternoon ...
