It's located in Zapopan, minutes away from Plaza Andares. Parking is gated, secure and not too expensive. The entrance fee is about $1 USD, and everything else within the museum (souvenirs, food, rental etc.) is dirt cheap as well.

We enjoyed our visit to Trompo Magico. My kids ages 4 and 8 found many activities for their age range. And my husband and I enjoyed them too. The museum has good facilities, great playground and enthusiastic staff. I liked that even babies will find their niche at the museum. And a bonus point for the museum is that it... More

There's special zones for crawling babies, for toddlers, preschoolers and older kids. One of the most popular features is the Bubbles, they can do them of all shapes and sizes and... More

Very good science and children's museum. Great time for the kids. Guided activities include TV, dance, radio, music and movie workshops, which are very well set-up and fun (and in Spanish only as far as I know), self exploring areas include a marketplace, restaurant, farm, medical (all of these pretend and suited for smaller kids of course) and a small...

At least that is what happened when I went last month with my grandson! We had a great time. The food section was not open so that made it a little uncomfortable when he got thirsty...and they do not like you bringing in your own food and drinks. It is a fun place to go...with kids for the afternoon..

My 9 year old daughter had a great time. We got to record a mock radio commercial, learn about how live TV shows are recorded and she was a reporter. Best of all, the place was not crowded! Definitely recommend this place.

This is a hands-on museum-game-place where children can finds lots of interesting things to experiment and different ways to learn from hands on experiences. There is even a mock TV station where kids can make their own tv programme and leave with a DVD of their experience (50 pesos only) Even little kids will find something to learn: from numbers...
