We went here expecting to see some art and instead walked into a kids fun zone. There was only 1/2 a floor of this converted prison dedicated to a musuem. The rest is nothing but screaming brats and pushy parents. A headache.

My son held his 6th birthday party there and they did a great job. Super spot for a rainy day when the kids are bored.

We have been to children's museums throughout the world. I won't say this one is world class but it is very nice. It is very big with lots of variety. Our son is 9 and daughter 8 and they enjoyed it very much. You could easily spend a half day there. Nice cafe with variety of foods on site. The neighborhood is not great so you might want to cab there. Have fun!

The Children's Museum used to be a jail and that gives the place a weird feeling as you explore the labyrinth of rooms filled with games, bright colors and toys. It's a blast for kids and for adults there are photography galleries for the exceptional work done by the national Photographer's Club members.

My daughter loved the Castle which used to a fort converted, her best experience was the Walmart Shopping Center where was given 5Mil Colon and a miniature shopping cart and could shop til you drop then had to check out with a real clerk! The kids will love this and the cost is less then $3 US dollars. Enjoy!
