  • It is a space children enjoy and learn about life, society and nature. These facilities are my favorite. Affordable for children and adults.

  • This museum lets children’s imagination fly as they get involved in a sensorial experience. Get ready to play with water, electricity, arts and crafts and even release butterflies!!  more »

  • This is a gem of a place for kids to hang out especially in the heart of the city of San Salvador. It is a secure and safe spot for your kids to be just kids. There are many activities that your kids can do. The butterfly exhibit was pretty amazing and being able to see these wonderful creatures up close was a treat. There was also a big "town" like complex where the kids can freely explore many different activities. You can easily spend 2-3 hours here and they will still have lots to do. It is well worth the time and money spent.
  • This is a great place for kids. 95% of the activities were working. My kids (13 and 9 years old) had a blast. Staff was very well prepared. My husband and I we also enjoyed the activities. The museum refreshed my memories of childhood and my time in school. Keep the great work. Definitely one of the best places for kids in San Salvador.
  • Family friendly space, really fun for the kids and also adults, you'll get to know more by playing! Adults are also included in activities, so you won't get bored. Young staff, they're very careful people, you can always ask them for help, and they'll help you instantly with no doubts! Price wise, it's economic, although prices may change during some seasons, they're mostly these ones: $3 (Adults and Children from 2 years old to 100 years, kids from less rhan 2 years don't pay entrance) and an extra $1 if you want an optional exhibition called "Planetario" wich translates to Planetarium, it's a multimedia projection exhibition, in which you can learn a lot of the space in an attractive way (Age recommend 7+, although, you can go with kids with less than that age if they don't get scared too easily, it's your decision after all, they won't deny you at any moment your right to get go that exhibition).
  • Place for kids but I think they could put more attention to hygiene, place that is supposed to be the cafeteria is dirty as hell.
  • It's a nice place, a nice get away for children and grown ups. However, the things are very old. They are remodeling, just added the jurassic park so maybe they'll eventually upgrade everything.
