Papalote Museo del Niño host the adult night every Thursday where you will find unique fun along with dinner and live jazz! Some girls say, it is an original choice for a date!

I visited Papalote with my 4 year old in June. It is really not a museum, but sort of an expensive toddler park that includes a bit of everything and is geared to make you stay as long as possible. The interactive exhibits were a bit too bland and boring and the two big attractions, the IMAX and the Planetarium... More

We took our little son to this museum and he loved it. There's to much to do to much to see. We also visited the Domo digital it's kind of planetarium, we watched the Sun and the stars, it was fabulous. This place worth every penny you spend in there. If you go to Mexico City, don't miss is you... More

A little boring and too expensive for what you get. There are other kinds of museums for kids in town that would not become a tourist trap where consumption is their main goal. Lousy exhibits and entertainment excpet for the IMAX shows.

Our three and a half and one and a half year old had a blast at the Papalote. We started early in the morning and spent over 5 hours there. We really enjoyed the variety of activities and the different temporary exhibitions.We were particularly grateful for the kid areas designed for those 5 and under since we felt that they... More

We finally visited Papalote after having had several people recommend it to us, and both my nine year-old and my 13 year-old ended up having a really nice time. I wish there had been English translations of some of the activities, but because science transcends language, we managed to understand just fine. Despite the language barrier, the people on staff...

You are travelling with a four year old one and you know that his interests are different from yours so you look for something which is fun for all. The kids museum in Mexico City. Even that everything is in Spanish, your child really doesn’t mind. Interactive games, giant bubbles, playgrounds, movies in 3D, touching, feeling and most important, lot’s... More

It is a beautiful place to go with children and toddlers. Our little girl is only 20 months and she had a blast just being free and playing with others. And of course we were taking lots of pictures and videos with our new iPhones. We didn't realize that it was just perfect scenario for theirs. It it the place... More

Papalote does have lot of activities but for foreign tourists can get boring when everything is in Spanish. Also it is much more crowded compared to Kidzania. They do not let you take food inside and charge you to store your things. However we saw some local folks who had got a Igloo full of food and were eating happily.... More
