My 9 year old daughter had a great time. We got to record a mock radio commercial, learn about how live TV shows are recorded and she was a reporter. Best of all, the place was not crowded! Definitely recommend this place.

This is one of the best interactive museums I have ever been. It has several areas where children of different ages, skills and interests can have fun and spend a day immersed in science, technology, the misteries of the universe and our role as human beings. I recommend it a lot.

Affordable fun place to visit with children if you want a day playing and enjoying the museum area. For all ages. 40 pesos to get in. A great place as a tourist to take your kids cause you will see tons if little Mexicanos with their families. More middle class environment.
