If you are visiting Monterrey the Alfa cultural center is a nice place to go, especially for children, because of the interactive scientific games and the omnimax films (extra fee). Besides, the building is looking the Sierra Madre with beautiful views.

Great place to visit but there wasnt much to it. My favorite part was the outside area with the peacocks, birds and ducks. Sometimes they show documentaries and they have a few exhibits, some of which are hands on. Good place to bring kids for the day!

The museum was practically empty. We had a great time playing at the since exhibit. Adults and children can learn playing. The movie theater is great since you can watch science movies projected in a round screen.

I've been here to see the Rufino Tamayo stained glass window, a huge panel that depicts the cosmos, it's beautiful and worth a visit. Also I've been here to see IMAX movies, it's great as long as you don't get too many screaming kids.

FOR KIDS! It is nice and fun for kids. The playground is great, they learn and play the whole time. The movies are usually good and worth seeing them, it is a round IMAX theater, some people get dizzy... just check it out before you go.

not in that many places you will be able to see an Omnimax movie like in here. On top of all the exhibitions and just renewed activities.

The Centro Cultural Alfa and Planetario is perfect for families with small children. We went here with our 5-year-old daughter. The grounds are beautiful and have many great interesting areas for children to explore (sculptures, play area, fountains, duck pond). We saw an Imax film which was perfect for her age: Fly Me to the Moon. My daughter doesn't even... More
