This is a must. Your kids will appreciate it. Probably the biggest in the world (kids) and located inside a huge public park

The museum has just been renovated and it is really really good. All the staff is super friendly and they are always attracting children to the activities. We went on a sunday morning and I thought it was going to be packed but it was not. Some of the staff speak english (they have a badge).

Our kids absolutely loved this museum. The Lego room is outstanding and there were so many staff people around to help and guide the kids. My children had so much fun exploring the "city" area that they did not even want to leave to go see the planetarium show we had purchased. My daughter never even made it upstairs by... More

I can go both ways on this one. It's a good kids museum (like any city this size would have). It has some really good exhibits and it is staffed with more young people to help the kids than any other kids museum I have ever seen. They are very kind and that part is great. It is important to... More

We spend almost the entire day here with our 3 year old and 1.5 year old; yet we weren't able to partake in all that the museum had to offer. Extremely clean........friendly staff. The lego play area and the bubbles were amazing.

They also have an IMAX screen, the first IMAX screen in all country! Recommended for weekend walks only, due its a heavy traffic area during weekdays. Tickets are not that expensive but a little price.... More

We took our 1 year old and 3yr old here. It is well maintained, clean with lots of interactive fun. There is lots of varies age appropriate activities. We spent about 3 hrs there and could have gone longer. There is a food court to eat at. There also is a great playground at the Bosque de chapultepec right by.

This is an interactive museum for children. The bad reviews that I have seen concentrate on the lack of WiFi (which I believe is now available), service staff that either did not speak English or were unhelpful, and exhibits that are in Spanish only. I found that where there was a demonstration or some sort of guided activity, guides conducted... More

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
