This is very much a world-class museum. Plenty of fun and hands-on learning for all ages. Our one regret is that we only had 3 1/2 hours; we didn't have nearly enough time to do it all. Our suggestion would be a minimum of about 5 to 6 hours.

We had a great time here with our 11 year old daughter. Many of the interactive demonstrations outside were quite fun and had us all engaged. The young attendants knew enough English to help explain the scientific principles. The aquarium is great with lots of interesting displays. We also enjoyed the activities in each of the "pods". All of the... More

We went to the garden across the street but it started to drizzle so we went here instead. It is a science museum geared towards small children. The aquarium portion is very pretty and they have a good assortment of fish. One hour was more then enough time to see everything. The staff we encountered only spoke Spanish but that... More

If you have young children, this is the place to go! Our only let down was that we arrived late in the day and missed some of the attractions.

Although we did no have any children in tow, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. There is something for all ages to enjoy. Our grown daughter even slid down the large slide(black hole)!

I spent a Sunday in this Park which is definitely full of amazing aquariums and also filled with scientific experiences. This place is good to visit to provide children an idea of science in practice.

Not only it is very nice, well maintained and full of fun games based on science facts that grown ups and kids may have a very exciting experience, it has a wonderful aquarium with incredible animals.

My wife and I brought our 5-year old daughter. She enjoyed it very much. It's near a full day worth of action - we stayed about 4 hours and could have been there a bit more My Spanish is basic, so I could not fully understand all the written and oral information. So if it were just me, I would... More
