  • Took much time wanting to visit this Museum and me happy much the to it have made today along with my small. Located in the old Pavilion of Peru of the Universal exhibition of 1929, in lovely surroundings, it joined to the Maria Luisa Park. It is a building in very good condition, both in its exterior as the interior. Without several them sections in which is divided this Museum: memory, cetaceans, leonardo ds vinci,... and the truth is that has been very rewarding our visit, so have last great with every curiosity, with each example interactive and with each section. My little has passed it in large, and which serve to feed more if each of their concerns are gratified me a lot. It is certainly a very educational event for children and adults. It only that echo in missing is that without something more large.
