"La città dei bambini e dei ragazzi" - the children and young people's town - is the place where your children can learn about science and technology while having fun. Over 2000 square meters where visitors between 2 and 12 years meet, observe and experiment with different topics. With more than 90 interactive and multimedia exhibits, children put themselves to the test both alone or in the company of adults to share a learning experience with the family. Child-friendly. It's never too early to learn. For this reason, children between 2 and 3 years have a dedicated area where they can discover the world playing. There is a small enchanted forest where they can explore a cave, go into the house, climb a small bridge and cross the river. Of course in complete safety, an easy and fun way for children to interact to objects and their own body. The discovery of the world however, awaits children between 3 and 5 years: in a real construction site, equipped with helmets, the kids play with small bricks, wheelbarrows, buckets and cranes. The young scientific minds can experiment with water, while others can freely express their creativity by drawing on touch screens.

City breaks can perhaps get a little boring for kids, so to have somewhere like this where our 3 year old son can have fun and burn some excess energy is brilliant. The building site room was his favourite and great for kids his age...More

Nice break for kids if no better plans for the afternoon. Nothing spectacular, but some good scientific demos that the kids are sure to enjoy. We went with 3 kids ( age 7, 9 & 10). Not for older kids.

Don't bother. Half the museum is broken, and there isn't much for kids to do. It's also very diifucult to find,although if you do succeed there is a parking lot close by.More

Excellent facility. We stayed for 3hrs with our kids (6.5yrs, 5yrs and 3.5yrs) and they didn't want to leave! Its like a huge playcentre but educational and fun. Well worth the money combined with the aquarium ticket.
