  • After years of not going to the kite, I went with my son of 2 years and their friends, I think that a dry well, it seems to me that even areas earmarked for children under 5 years are not at all recommended for children as small as mine. He would return, but definitely in a couple of years.

  • What I pass? All the recordabamos as an excellent Science Museum for children? that make chinampas and Axolotls, their guides were phenomenal and super fun, could now be any fast food restaurant operators.

  • While almost all of the employees are young, the atmosphere of commitment, dedication and commitment of each one of them, we visited the Museum and we spent a great day both large and small, 100% recommended.

  • Excellent for the kids! A lot of activities and a great staff to monitor them. It's a full day or more visit
  • There are only 3 exhibitions opne since they are remoddeling. Waste of time and money
  • Warning, it's a kid's place, if none are coming with you, you can skip it. For kids it's one of the best children's museum I've seen. You will spend a few hours in there if you let them play with everything
  • Great spot for a weekend with the kids. Really great activities and games for them. We love it!
  • Nice museum for kids. Try to avoid the weekends.
