This is very boring even for kids. Expesive and not worth it. If you want to have fun with family go somewhere else.

Hello. Thank you for your comment. We have many activities for the whole family, like movies at the IMAX Dome, the Aviary, the museum with interactive exhibitions, specially for kids, the astronomical observatory and science shows that are very interesting.

Hello. Thank you for your comment. This summer we had a lot of visitors, so some days the car lines were a little bit longer than regular days. Nevertheless, we worked to make faster the entrance of cars. We hope to see you soon.

Planetario Alfa is nice. They are different exhibitions, you can see a few animals. Though it was crowded when we went and there was nothing extraordinary. Why not for one day but it's not the first place I would recommend to go there.

Hello. Thank you for your visit. Planetario Alfa´s Aviary was the first Aviary of Monterrey built in 1986. The Aviary, undoubtedly, is one of the favorites spots for visitors. We hope to see you back soon!
