A very entertaining museum, especially for kids! We really enjoyed it a lot... There are a lot of different topics and exhibitions to look for... They also have an IMAX screen, the first IMAX screen in all country! Recommended for weekend walks only, due its a heavy traffic area during weekdays. Tickets are not that expensive but a little price.... More

We took our 1 year old and 3yr old here. It is well maintained, clean with lots of interactive fun. There is lots of varies age appropriate activities. We spent about 3 hrs there and could have gone longer. There is a food court to eat at. There also is a great playground at the Bosque de chapultepec right by.

This is an interactive museum for children. The bad reviews that I have seen concentrate on the lack of WiFi (which I believe is now available), service staff that either did not speak English or were unhelpful, and exhibits that are in Spanish only. I found that where there was a demonstration or some sort of guided activity, guides conducted... More

if you are with kids dont miss out and if you are without kids - dont miss out do bother to go there (and it is a bit of a hassle) they got very nice demonstrations about the water cycle, creative activities and much much more all through participation not only observation

The Papalote Children's activity museum is a good place to spend pretty much an entire day with your young children. It is informative and entertaining for children. In my opinion, this children's activity museum is mostly going to entertain younger children who are baelow 10 years of age. Older children as well as adults, might start to feel a little... More

The museum is one the best Children's museum's we've ever visited. The only drawback is that all the descriptions for the various activities are written in Spanish and we do not speak Spanish. However, one of the employees there (I think her name was Dany) realized that we were struggling with the language and dedicated a lot of name translating... More

Such a nice break in the vacation for the kids. Well run exhibits with reasonable attempts to keep each from being over crowded. Workers were very cheery and helpful. The line to pay entrance with cash was quicker than the credit card line.

We were so excited to take our Mexican nephew to this recently renovated place and just realized that the entry fee is somehow overpriced (15USD) regardless whether you are using the IMAX and Digital Dome or just the museum. This acquires special importance since these theaters offer movies late in the evening, times not appropriate for many kids. We had... More

It was under construction and some attractions were obviously closed, however the staff working there is terrible, no organization, they don't know where they work, in order to get in you make long lines. Save your money and don't go here.
