  • This is a great place to visit. It’s a large well designed museum with lots of interactive displays and activities that kids of all ages will enjoy. The museum does a great job separating the spaces to ensure they are age appropriate. They cover many science disciplines. For those who don’t speak Spanish, you can still visit and enjoy. There are a limited number of English speaking staff but you will lose the ability to experience the cool science experiences.
  • One of the best museums for kids I have been. My son love it! The staff was very friendly and accomodating. It gets a bit crowed some times, so keep an eye on your kids!
  • You need a whole day to visit the museum. There is plenty to do and see. A great option to take kids from as little as 2 years old up to adult age!
  • Great place to bring your family. We had a fantastic time in this museum despite my son's Spanish being quite limited. Staff was super friendly and exhibits were well done.
  • It’s a great place to spend the day with children! I would say that is one of the most amazing children’s museums in the world! It has a Super-dome, an IMAX, and a brand renovated infrastructure!
