La città dei bambini (the city of children) is a very nice place located in the Porto Antico area of Genoa. It comprises 4-5 large rooms equipped with a number of exciting games for children of all ages, including a toy construction yard (including cranes, pulleys, and scaffoldings), water games, soap bubbles games, a glassbox living anthill, distorting mirrors, a...

Excellent time for both of our kids aged 5 and 11 years old , including us. Very nice and imaginitive stuff to do and you can always get the combined cheaper ticket to see the acquarium which was very good and the kids enjoyed it a lot. Place worth visiting definitely.

This children's museum has lots of activities based on science. It is divided into different sections for different age groups, but my little five year old son loved every part of it... And so did I. It is larger than the Children's museum we have in Rome, and it is much cheaper to boot (when you purchase the entry as... More

Excellent facility. We stayed for 3hrs with our kids (6.5yrs, 5yrs and 3.5yrs) and they didn't want to leave! Its like a huge playcentre but educational and fun. Well worth the money combined with the aquarium ticket.

Together with my 5 and a half year old (one must never forget the half) and three year old, La Citta dei Bambini was a wonderful way to pass a rainy afternoon. Every activity was a great success. The ones which stick out the most were the games with water, the area we christened 'Bob the Builder' and the ants.... More

In a hot summer day there aren't many things to do for kids in Genvoa outside of the sun. This is one of the best. The museum is great for kids age 10 and below. There are a few different rooms, age appropriate, where they can play with large blocks, play with water, pretend to record the news in a... More

After visiting the Acquarium, we spent a couple of hours into this Città dei Bambini. Our three daughters touched everything, experimented, climbed. It's a must-have if you have kids younger than 12 and have a couple of hours of time.

We were in Genoa as a stopover between Turin and Florence and happened upon this place located in the old port area. It's a smallish but very well done science and discovery museum oriented at kids (the name says it). A bit expensive, but well worth it. The kids had a great time and learned a lot. Especially perfect for... More
