    We had visited the Museum several times until they closed for remodeling. This weekend we decided to go to meet him... and I were to owe. Some things that before were still (bubbles, the tree, the supermarket). Although there are some new things it seems that it is not nothing interactive and they are not using new technologies. Many screens and devices do not work... the attention of the staff of the Museum is good, except when approaching the time close (the Museum should shout as soon as time going to close so that children know... the "buddies" become it and put in a fairly sangron plan and to an annoying extent.) ... Appalling restrooms! They forgot to renew them or are just the budget or not is what happened to them. Ugly, dirty, fully practical im and not intended for children. Fast food area was very well (and is appreciated because before was an ordeal and a disgusting to eat there). The parking lot is still a martyrdom if they go on weekend. If they already knew him, don't expect much. At the end children spend well, but from my point of view have many things to improve.

    If I had to take my child to a school work to the papalote Museum of the child... oh disappointment! my opinion is that it is not worth what costs or brings that boasts input price more than 250pesos x piocha is excessive... say is a Museum for children! Which altruistic work? Then that if the entrance to the dome banamex (note as all within the Park, I say Museum is publicized and funded) worth already then we went to the screening of the documentary that is inside the Museum therefore to pay input complete, hear but if to my send me school nor is there a discount? Chiggers! Pay and raisins well is by God by educating the kid once seen the documentary (do national parks of e.u,... because they don't have one with Mexico,? They are very many! We carry Street with the biodiversity of our beautiful country and children would know more and all it would take more care) and we will properly visit the Museum... very badly wrong is pure scenery to the more pure style televisa... The building is cold spiked places to sit for the elderly, map of the many colors but unclear, you lose and famous activities touch play and learning many are closed and which were running a fraud: get a robotic hand! If not, straws used wires etc and monitors dial orientandote poor guys all apathetic in the Museum as such is not learned much. Many closed activities, or devices without maintenance and operate (speak speakers, monitors, printers only 3d paper and sticks to work leaving aside that recycle obvious) little fun many people wandering around as a zombie and few places to rest between boardroom fraud to another will not!

    Nice remodeling, yet one feels less warmth than the previous setup. I did not like attending a business presentation in the dome, I had a terrible neck pain before falling asleep due to the chair position. But this all is not taking into account my children's saying... I'll tell them...

    Great museum, tons of fun acivities for the kids that engage the adults as well. My only complaint is the terrible acoustics in the place, the staff has to be yelling the whole time because its difficult to hear them and for the children to understand instructions or stories.

    A must go science museum for kids and grown-ups. Enjoy all movies and dome attractions.

Where to stay in Mexico City

Head straight to the trendy neighborhoods of Roma or La Condesa if you're looking for an artsy atmosphere--you can find design-conscious hostels and boutique hotels nestled among the many bars, restaurants, cafes, and galleries. For easy access to the city's most beautiful architecture, you can't beat staying in the historical center, although the neighborhood's UNESCO-listing means you'll only find smaller, old-fashioned options there. You can also indulge in a few luxury nights in the fancy Polanco district, or look for a more budget-friendly option in the popular Zona Rosa.
