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.

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
