Its really entertaining. You have a lot of interactive expos. Great value for price. The first section is to have conscience in environmental issues.

“Enlightening, educational and fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

This is four-stories of well planned, clearly stated, interactive learning. It includes information ranging from the environmental impact of our lifestyle and choices, to how money is printed. The recommended visit is a minimum of 1.5 hours; I stayed 4 and could easily have stayed longer. I would highly recommend it for adolescents and adults.

“Great interactivity, fun and interesting!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

Great museum with lots of activities for kids and grown ups. I didn't do the market simulation but wish I had time.
The place is well located, there are employees everywhere offering help and explanations which made a big difference.
The games are great fun and the content is very interesting! I would highly recommend this place as it's a great destination for a fun and interesting afternoon.

“Awesome for kids and grownups!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

The interactivity of this museum is great. It is used perfectly to teach you financial related topics. The building is also worth visiting. In this instance, there is a very interesting numismatic showroom with interesting pieces: escudos, reales, banknotes from different eras as well as coins. Recommended.

“Boring name for a great museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2014

I passed by this place a couple of times thinking, "who comes to Mexico to visit an interactive economy museum?" Well, I decided to give it a go after I read the great reviews on TripAdvisor, and it was definitely worth it. The museum is four floors full of interactive exhibits. The information on display is interesting both for children and grown-ups. You learn about the fundamentals of economics, how bills are made in Mexico, and you can even create your own bill.

The only negatives I can think of is that most of the content is in Spanish, which might be a problem if you don't speak the langauge, and that the interactive exhibitions get crowded on weekends. Still 100% worth the detour!
