Attraction details
Reviewed August 2, 2017 via mobile

I went here today with another family and their children and we had an excellent time. it was so fun!! They had a bunch of science installations, from dinosaurs to chemistry, planet and solar system displays, a planitrium playing kids movies, a butterfly exhibit, gardens, baby and young children play area and more. The arts and crafts were 25 pesos per child and the movie was 10. Entrance was 70 pesos but summer is 2 for 1. The kids had a blast! we could touch a piece of the moon. I think their favorite part were the gigantic bubbles and the shock game. in every area of the museum there were multiple people offering to give us explanations more information. Book the butterfly interaction early, it fills up. There's a nice restaurant, food was inexpensive and good. I had a great fig salad but it strangely serves tequila and wine, but no beer. There's also a more casual place serving food.

It used to be much better when it started. Unfortunately recent administrations haven't kept it as it should. It's still a nice place to take the kids.

This place will keep you and your children entertained and learning for at least 4-5 hours. The place is great for all children. There are many things to see, do, try and touch. Everything is really hands-on. The best part is the area for children 0-6 years. Start out here if you have young children as this is the best part of all. There's also a special closed-off area for 0-2 year olds. It looks very nice.
