There are many things for your kids to do here, also, the movie they play (varies) is impressive! As an adult I enjoy visiting here, I'm sure my kid loves it!. During summer, be sure to stay well hydrated as it gets hot !! Don't forget sunscreen for the little ones!

This Museum has a long tradition on Monterrey, it is used to be one of the main attractions for locals and tourist. Now it is a nice science museum with two permanent exhibition (A look inside your body and Old Mexicans) and two temporarily exhibitions that usually changes every six months. We were lucky to see an exhibition about Leonardo... More

Loved the peacocks and walking trails. Lots of things for younger children, but I'm spoiled by first class museums in Boston, so was not overly impressed with the content of the exhibits. We did an IMAX show about space exploration and NASA, which was interesting.

This place reminds me when I was in elementary school and they used to take us as field trips. Nothing really has changed, the place seems a little old, well maintained but still old with some good expositions but not really frequented by people interested in science just in taking some selfies. It is ok to visit if you do... More

They handle interesting exhibitions during the year + the chance of the mega screen. The place is located with a privileged view, great service and it's a pretty good idea to introduce children to science and somehow nature as per adjacent gardens in this cool and nice place where playing can learn.
