  • 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
