  • I really enjoyed the entrance with my 1 year old. I paid for my ticket, and she couldn't tear herself away from the giant led screen that's in the entryway for almost an hour. We did walk around a bit, but then she found the stomach play area, and we spend the rest if the time there. It seems like a very fun museum, but I would suggest getting the year pass if you have small children, as it very likely going to take us a month or more at this pace. The displays are nice looking, with a lot of interactive parts, which is awesome. I just wish there was a bit more soundproofing, as the museum was very loud, which may be a problem for children who have sensory issues.
  • We just spend the whole day here... we loved this place. Even though some of it was too old for our near 2 year old he had a blast wandering around exploring.... As did we..!! If in Mexico city with kids, please bring them here.. it'll make all your days!
  • A childishly funny experience for kids that grownups can share. A museum to experience joy through sensorial interaction with different objects and games. An attached IMAX theater showing visually stunning movies can help you catch some breathing afterwards. All fun!
  • That's the way to have the kids in safe and learning Important things in life. Take like 6 hours to visit.
  • Excellent for kids. A lot to do and check out.
