It has a great variety of activities, including a real helicopter, plane, fire truck and train cars. It occupies a former penitentiary so it has added value for the addults. The staff... More

After visiting the zoo, we had a little time to kill and decided to check out this museum with our 4 and 6 year old. What a great surprise! They had such a great time. Just when you thought you had seen everything, you would go into another room and a whole new world would open up! So much to... More

I have been several times as an adult to art exhibitions, music concerts, etc., but I have also gone with my two grandchildren aged 4 and 8 and the loved it. It is a museum where thy can learn, play and be active. They always want to go back again!

My son and I had a 5 hour layover in San Jose, so I decided to take him here on a whim to avoid the torture of being at the airport for 5 hours with an active child! We were both so glad we went! It is about 20 minutes from the airport and tons of things for kids of... More

There were a lot of attractions and things for the kids to do, but it wasn't as clean as the kids museums that most people would be used to. A lot of the stuff was also broken. The price was good though.
