Mexico City has so many museums, such an embarrassment of choices, that this one may not be your first choice, It certainly wasn't mine. But when afforded the chance to enter, I took advantage of it, and thought it was fairly cool. Not a place...More

Unfortunately, the exhibit is only in Spanish, but this is one of my favorite museums in the city. They expose children and young teenagers to the VERY useful concepts of economy. The building in itself is the old convent of the bethlehemites, which is beautiful.

Seemed like a large part of my schooling years were summed up in this place. My biggest recommendation is that you go with plenty of time. This place is very entertaining because it is so interactive, but every activity requires time. Considering this, the place...More

The museum is very educational and well presented with lots of interactive game about life and economy. Highly recomend the place for older kids 10 up. I went with my son 5 and it was too advanced, so we didn't enjoy it much unfortunately

Centro Historico
The beating heart of the city lies within Centro
Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings
and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico
City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio
Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas
Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to
admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit
the wide variety of markets and plazas where any
