Subjects covered include space, wildlife, geography, the human body and society. They are presented in action-filled, engaging fashion for the little ones. The surrounding neighborhood can be a bit sketchy, so taking a cab is recommended. « less

An awesome science-interactive cultural center. Excellent to wake up the curiosity of children, and it's quite cheap too. Well located in the city center, and various interactive activities.

Although located at a non-attractive place (ugly, a bit dangerous), the building and the conception of this museum is worthwhile the "risk". Science to all ages, interactive. Impossible not to learn or have fun. Good parking lot.

My kids now are 6 and 8, but I've been going there with them since they were very young!! They always have a GREAT time and no matter how many times we go it's always difficult to get them out... It's a wonderful option for a rainy Sunday morning...
