  • Interactive Museum designed for children but very interesting for all ages. various topics including life curu, astronomy, scientific facts and history. Constantly offers events and special activities, so I recommend to check to take advantage of them, also ask if they have open the torrejas House, is very funny. In addition it has rooms where occasionally exhibited art and an auditorium where held presentations. It is easy to reach but the area is not pretty.
