After several days of "grown-up" activities like shopping and looking and the wonderful historical sights in Old San Juan, our kids (8 and 4) had a great time at Museo del Nino. We spent a good 2 hours here on a hot day. Previous comments (positive and negative) were correct. The museum was a bit small and the staff was... More

My 5 year old and I went to see this museum after New Years. We expected an interactive experience. We have visited other kids museums and my daughter likes exploring the hands on exhibits that we'd seen elsewhere. She is a pretty calm kid and plays well with other kids. This place is tiny. If there are more than a... More

This is a kids museum located in the heart of Old San Juan. Right in front of the museum there is a "public plaza" or square. When you enter the museum they instruct the kids TO TOUCH EVERYTHING. Can you imagine how amazing it is to go to a museum and be able to touch everything??? They have different exhibitions... More

We were excited to tour Old San Juan but I worried that with a 10 and 6 year old, all of the history was going to get boring quickly...So right across from one of the Cathedrals is this little children's museum. It costs a bit to get in (I'm thinking we paid around $25-30 for four of us) but if... More

Small children find it very interesting. However, you should call first, because it's not always open.

Great staff. They told nice stories as we made our way. My 2 and 3 year olds were well entertained for the 2 hours we were there.

Awesome staff and great set-up for kids anywhere from 1-99. Something for everyone to learn and it brings out the kid in anyone. My 4 year old son LOVES this place. Call before you go, they could be closed for private parties. Seconds away from so many other things to see and do...like Coach outlets and awesome restaurants!

Great place to take the kids on a non beach day or when they have had enough of sightseeing. SO much to see and do... easy to spend 3-4 hours or more playing and doing.
