if you are with kids dont miss out and if you are without kids - dont miss out do bother to go there (and it is a bit of a hassle) they got very nice demonstrations about the water cycle, creative activities and much much more all through participation not only observation

The Papalote Children's activity museum is a good place to spend pretty much an entire day with your young children. It is informative and entertaining for children. In my opinion, this children's activity museum is mostly going to entertain younger children who are baelow 10 years of age. Older children as well as adults, might start to feel a little... More

The museum is one the best Children's museum's we've ever visited. The only drawback is that all the descriptions for the various activities are written in Spanish and we do not speak Spanish. However, one of the employees there (I think her name was Dany) realized that we were struggling with the language and dedicated a lot of name translating... More

Such a nice break in the vacation for the kids. Well run exhibits with reasonable attempts to keep each from being over crowded. Workers were very cheery and helpful. The line to pay entrance with cash was quicker than the credit card line.

We were so excited to take our Mexican nephew to this recently renovated place and just realized that the entry fee is somehow overpriced (15USD) regardless whether you are using the IMAX and Digital Dome or just the museum. This acquires special importance since these theaters offer movies late in the evening, times not appropriate for many kids. We had... More

It was under construction and some attractions were obviously closed, however the staff working there is terrible, no organization, they don't know where they work, in order to get in you make long lines. Save your money and don't go here.

We had fun here, but it wasn't the most exciting kids museum that we have ever been to. It took up time and was fun, but I wasn't impressed with the exhibits. My kids enjoyed it.

I took my 3 year old daughter to this museum during our last visit to Mexico City. The museum is okay, but their management lacks people skills. Being a tourist from the USA and not knowing so well the city, I asked the manager in charge to get their password to log into WI-FI as my husband had an accident... More

One of the museums created for kids-but for everyone, in Mexico City a great experience to learn & have fun, I watch in the big screen a movie about dinosaurs and it was very nice! I wish I could visit soon to watch another movie in that enormous movie theater screen !

Took the family here and wish we could have stayed longer. So many things to do for both kids and adults! It truly is an amazing place, there should be one of these in every city! The only thing that would be a knock against it is the poor selection of brand name restaurants in the cafeteria. Come on now... More
