This interactive museum it’s not too close to the town center, but it worth the visit, especially if you’re traveling with kids. You can take the subway, but it will take some ten minute walking.
The museum is located in a very poor part of the city. The surroundings are not attractive. Maybe you can consider taking an Uber for nearly CLP17000 or 25$. The trip by car lasts nearly 40 minutes.
On the other hand, it’s nice to realize that the museum was built in this place with a purpose to offer math science and physics to the poor people who live there. More than a tourist attraction, this is a social and educational attraction.
Once you arrived there, you’ll be delighted with all of the experiences provided for the kids.For instance, my daughter loved to play with the bubbles and the optic lab. The nail bed was a success among the adults as well. Everything in the place has a purpose. The experiences are nice and always let you think about the results. Cause and consequence. We had lunch there, in the building not so far from the museum. They served the every day food of a Chilean. No complicated menus, just the basic food, which served us well.
Overall we had a nice time. We spent three hours in the morning, n entertaining ourselves with the experiments and having a lot of fun. If you have kids, it’s a must see attraction. Eight months ago, we’ve been to Paris and visited the science Museum off La Villette, and I have to say that this museum offered us an even better experience exclamation
