  • This is an excellent attraction if you are bringing kids to Mexico City. Easy to get to on the metro, and in a lovely park, which includes many other attractions.  more »
  • They can not miss the Museum, re model and it was spectacular we were from 11 to 6 and not finish it. It has Megapantalla digital Dome, and a floor of lab with hands-on activities apart from the entire Museum with very good content! The price is excellent for everything that offers and option is very affordable meal.

  • I a lot of Gringo Paisas writing comments in English that does change who you are. But they indigenous face make them look mexican.
  • 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.
  • Very nicely organized. Kids have a blast there

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.
