  • We visited the Museum with two children between 5 and 9 years old. It can be visited in about 2:30 to have time to do the mission! Museum very interesting but the information on things seen are sometimes hard to find. A few things to do as the simulation of an earthquake or the launch of ball has the crossbow! Located next to the plant garden is nice too as well as games in the nearby park. Little info option to reach the Capitol Square in 20 minutes on foot. We had a very good afternoon.
