I have been many times to the Papalote, mainly to watch the movies on the IMAX theater. This time, my son really wanted to watch the "Galapagos" movie and although we checked the webpage beforehand, there seemed to be no problem with the remodeling of the museum. Nevertheless, getting a parking spot was an absolute nightmare as they advertise that... More

I have been 2 times with my family in this park, the first visit was awesome, this one not that much. The park concept is great, they created a tech environment suitable for kids, where there's no restriction for them to touch and discover science by themselves. Right now the whole Chapultepec area (area where the Park is located) is... More

I visited the museum on a Thursday when they open till 11 pm and have live jazz music. The museum is small, the kids seem to have a lot of fun in it, however many of the activities seem very old and not very well maintained. The people who work there are very friendly and very kind with the kids... More

I remember when they first opened the museum aboout 15 years ago (give or take a couple years). I went there with my nieces who were 2-5 years, I remember thinking "this place is AWESOME!!!". I recently went back with my own kids and nephew (ages 8, 7 and 6) and it was very crowded, so time in each room/exhibit... More

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.
