A great place in the middle of Recoleta neighbourhood where kids can experiment scientifically at their leisure. Do not miss the fantastic shows or demonstrations that are offered. I particularly enjoyed the one on electricity.

Seems to be a nice place to go with kids. Only the place was packed. I Would suggest organizing small group tours with people who could explain what the experimenta were all about.

If you are visiting Recoleta, the museum can prove to be a great attraction for young children and adults alike. It provides hands-on experience on different phenomena ( water, electricity, sound or magnetic energy among others). Do not miss its participative and very informative sessions which engage all audiences equally and provide an interesting approach to the understanding of physics.... More

Took my 8 year-old for an afternoon of great fun. The museo is located inside Centro Cultural de Recoleta and is pretty easy to find. The fee is 25 pesos and you have to climb some stairs to get there, even though i saw an elevator sign at the entrance. You can touch everything, but the directions and explanations for... More

This is a great museum to get anyone interested in science whether it has to do with motion, water, sound, electricity, etc. The kids (and adults) have a great time There are also some educational sessions that are short, fun, and informative. We attended one on static electricity that the kids loved, and the parents learned a little. There is... More

This museum is an entertaining way to spend 2-3 hours with children in Buenos Aires. It is in one of the most touristic parts of town, attached to the Recoleta cemetery and therefore easy to find and reach. There is a convenient adjacent indoor garage. The museum is a science and technology exhibition that includes multiple rooms on two levels,... More

Once you find it, this is a good place to bring children and teens. Find the entrance to the Recoleta cultural center, head through double doors to the courtyard and you will find your way. Everything is in Spanish but that won't stop anyone from enjoying the place. Plus you can make things up and you sound like a genius... More

Staying in Recoleta

Neighbourhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
