Cotoli was born in Lucena, Córdoba but moved to Peru to study and became known for his buildings which blended indigenous and colonial architecture.

  • We seemed great, we spent a Sunday afternoon or pleasant, the exhibitions are well, they are short and clear, a museum with so much information for a child, is not very practiced, so all we saw him and we learned, are awaiting the new exhibitions, Thank you.

  • The space is very good and has some very interesting and interactive exhibitions, but the premises benefit widely from a logical sequence in the various areas of knowledge, which turn out to be too dispersed and mixed. Still, it is worth visiting.

  • A repeat experience! I am a scout group monitor and I think it contains exhibits that are of interest for children. The Planetarium is undoubtedly the best! There are a variety of issues and is pleasant to take the morning or the afternoon

  • This a brilliant (and air conditioned) science museum.
  • We visited the temporary computer science exhibition. Not very big museum but well adapted for the younger audience, many items to touch and try.
  • Fascinating building in rare pre-Columbian revival style, built for the Peruvian pavilion of the American-Iberian exposition. The museum itself is mediocre but has an interesting collection of cetean skeletons.
  • unexpectedly the museum was closed. A little note on the front gate sait that it is closed untill the end of september.
  • Quite good fun for an hour or so. Definitely worth a visit if you have kids.
