“always interesting”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

the exhibits rotate but they are always interesting. Parking is free and there is always room. Admission is also free. The bathrooms are clean and well kept. The guards speak only Spanish but they are very friendly. Picture taking is allowed! If you go, don't miss the large room upstairs with the bas relief of the history of Costa Rica!

“Huge museum for children”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is by far, the best children's museum we've been to. You could spend a whole day here and still not see it all. My husband took my 6 year old and they only got to 1/3 of the museum. I had the 4 year old and we managed to almost do it all in 3 hours. Most of the information is in spanish, but there are some english signs. The museum staff were friendly and some spoke limited english. The museum itself used to be a penetentiary so it was interesting to see how it was transformed. Bit of a dodgy area though so make sure you have transportation.

“Children's Museum”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

We went to this museum because we thought it would be interesting and it was. It was fun to see all of the different exhibits and talk with the workers in the museum, they were really nice and helpful with my Spanish. Be aware that the neighborhood leading up to the museum is not a good place for children, take a taxi don't walk.
