The museum illustrates in a practical and interactive way the fundamental concepts of Economics. From supply and demand through macroeconomic cycles to financial markets. It's aimed at kids, but we really enjoyed it even as adults. The top floor is dedicated to sustainable development and...More

Mexico City has so many museums, such an embarrassment of choices, that this one may not be your first choice, It certainly wasn't mine. But when afforded the chance to enter, I took advantage of it, and thought it was fairly cool. Not a place...More

One of most engaging museums I have visited in Mexico City. There are role plays where you can learn how stock markets work and a very good balance of tradition, history and new tecnologies.

Unfortunately, the exhibit is only in Spanish, but this is one of my favorite museums in the city. They expose children and young teenagers to the VERY useful concepts of economy. The building in itself is the old convent of the bethlehemites, which is beautiful.

Centro Historico
The beating heart of the city lies within Centro
Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings
and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico
City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio
Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas
Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to
admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit
the wide variety of markets and plazas where any
