The museum was the perfect rest stop for our kids (9 & 2) on our day trip to San Juan. It was a break for the 9 year old from all the walking and a chance for our 2 year old to get out of his stroller and run around. They could've spent all day here. There are 3 floors... More

I went here because of all the good reviews but it wasn't good for people who don't speak Spanish. All of the activities were in Spanish and all of the staff was busy helping the school students who were there visiting from local schools. They wanted me to let my three year old play in the small kids area while... More

It's a nice break for the kids to be kids and have fun. The first floor is for toddlers under 2 yrs. The second and third are for for 2-10 yrs. There are toys, books, dress up clothes, drawing/coloring, science displays, a cave with rubber spiders and snakes and a water exhibit (read: splash in the water). It's not going... More

Unfortunately this museum is boring and run down. Not impressed at all. Staff was nice but very strict to clean up, which can be difficult when trying to play and chase around a 1& 3 year old. No strollers allowed. They don't take AMX or large bills. No place to eat and don't allow food. If raining can't not get... More

This is a small, 3 story building in a great location in the center of San Juan. We couldn't go to the 3rd floor cause it rained and we were told it get slippery so they don't close the area. Being limited to the other 2 floors was extremely disappointing when 80% of the exhibits don't work at all. Also... More

Just love it! You have to go. It's conveniently located in Old San Juan in front of the big Catedral and near the hotel El Convento. If you're in a cruise or just in the area, walk to the museum! It's a very nice and calid place to go with your family, three floors of exhibitions and each one have... More

Ok its a kind of fun for kids thing but go to the top floor and see amazing plants growing right there. Different types of your foods are growing at a faster pace. Spinach looks like a small succulent,just to name one. They are for sale too, check the rules for taking it home. Then come outside and find the... More

We stopped in to the museum for a couple of hours to appease our youngest (5 year old) who was a trooper all week doing all of our site seeing etc. We were pleasantly surprised at what a cute museum was right in the heart of Old San Juan on a beautiful street we walked a couple of times before....

We swung by this museum at the suggestion of our concierge and were glad that we did. Amusingly enough, adults cost less than the kids. They must have switched the prices since some of the other reviewers visited. There was a craft that was $1 extra. It was not a super large museum, but it had many areas and our... More
