Museo de los Niños
Address: inside Parque Central
Housed within a lively, colorful building inside the Parque Central area, the museum provides a healthy, colorful environment for children to learn and have fun at the same time.
The main highlights of the museum consist of interesting interactive displays that explain the basics of science to kids in a way they are sure to remember, using colors, music, and games. The activities that the museum offers aim at stimulating the children’s thinking and analyzing abilities, by helping them through small game-like tasks.
However, the museum does not stop you from polishing up on your elementary school math and science even if you are a postdoctoral fellow!
The most popular section amongst children is the space and astronomy display, including the museum’s own planetarium that hosts regular informative shows on multimedia. Other specific sections cater to kids in higher classes, like chemistry, physics, social sciences, appreciation of art, and history and culture.
The museum is beautifully landscaped – enjoy an evening stroll or a nice coffee break when you are done adventuring with your little ones.
