The museum is very educational and well presented with lots of interactive game about life and economy. Highly recomend the place for older kids 10 up. I went with my son 5 and it was too advanced, so we didn't enjoy it much unfortunately

This is really an interactive museum. You could spend hours there. They teach you on economics, ecology, decisions, the world... There are organized workshops. Very good games and explanations. It is very good for children, teens and adults. Plan enough time as we went for an hour and we could just see one floor.

Its really entertaining. You have a lot of interactive expos. Great value for price. The first section is to have conscience in environmental issues.

This is four-stories of well planned, clearly stated, interactive learning. It includes information ranging from the environmental impact of our lifestyle and choices, to how money is printed. The recommended visit is a minimum of 1.5 hours; I stayed 4 and could easily have stayed longer. I would highly recommend it for adolescents and adults.

Great museum with lots of activities for kids and grown ups. I didn't do the market simulation but wish I had time.

I would highly recommend this place as it's a... More

The interactivity of this museum is great. It is used perfectly to teach you financial related topics. The building is also worth visiting. In this instance, there is a very interesting numismatic showroom with interesting pieces: escudos, reales, banknotes from different eras as well as coins. Recommended.

The information on display is interesting both for children... More

If you want to lift your spirits on the state of the world, DO NOT MISS this. (1) If you are a person who believes that the old should be re-purposed, DO NOT MISS this.

I visited this museum on a Sunday morning with my daughters (4 and 6) and my husband. I would recommend going as early as possible as it got quite crowded. It is all in Spanish, not sure if there are guides in English. The building the mueseum is housed is is beautifully restored and the exhibits are. Fun, interesting and... More
