  • Great pricing, they are always nice to visitors, great customer service. Fun activities during the whole year. At least 1 "big atraction" every six months. I don't know I like the place a lot.
  • Great for kids. BUT they need funding. Good day to explore with your family so 5 stars for that. Several displays were dated and need updating.
  • It's a museum to enjoy. There is easy access by taxi or personal car. Lots of activities for kids. You'll need many hours to visit all the showrooms. In addition to them, there's a store plus a cafeteria.
  • Great great place for the kids, many things to see, fun and educational at the same time.
  • Awesome museum to visit with kids of all ages where they can learn so many interesting stuff about the solar system, dinosaurs (RAWRRRR my kid's favorite) Costa Rica and much more. I recommend going during the week to avoid the crowd.
