  • Best kids museum we have visited anywhere. Activities for all ages. Educational and fun with areas to burn off steam (giant climbing frames etc) as well as an imax and a cinema dome. Just brilliant. W...  more »
  • Great place for entertaining young children and adults too. Very hands on but no signage in English. Helpful translators and many staff speak English though.  more »
  • The children's Museum is one of the best options to spend the whole day in Chapultepec Park. The number of interactive options have, rooms of different samples and projections organized promptly it is better go with time to spare to enjoy all and each of the experiences it offers. The number of visitors is very high, especially during the weekends, so the ideal is to go during the week to enjoy everything calmly and be able to access the food stalls that exist inside the Museum without having to standing in line...

  • That's the way to have the kids in safe and learning Important things in life. Take like 6 hours to visit.
  • Careful when eating at Subway. They kept the debit card I used to pay, when I noticed I went back to pick it up and they wouldn't give it back. They did accept I left it there....
  • I wish I could find a museum like this in every state of the US. This museum makes grown-ups feel like we were kids again.
  • A childishly funny experience for kids and grownups. A museum to experience joy through sensorial interaction.
  • 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...

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.
