Located in the Abasto Shopping Center, this kids’ museum offers everything from miniature versions of Buenos Aires landmarks to an up-close-and-personal look at how businesses (gas stations, doctor’s and dentist’s offices, TV and radio stations) function. Best of all, they get to try careers on for (mini) size while they’re here.

My kids love this place (ages 6 and 8), good for younger ages too. I take them for a treat very occasionally because it gets so crowded I can't stand it. We go right when it opens (usually 1 or 3 in the afternoon) and leave when it starts to get too crowded. Many nice, interactive exhibits. Like a cheaper... More

Exceeded my expectations of a clean and well organized museum. We have a 6 and 9 year old girl and boy and they had a ball with all the exhibits and were completely wiped out after 3 hours of play. Definitely worth the visit should you want to stay out of the heat on a summer day. It is also... More

They offer a wide variety of playgrounds for kids and babies as... More

Took our kids, aged 3 and 5. They loved all of it. Very interactive and gets them to role play various professions. Kept them entertained for hours, both them and parents enjoyed it. Plus I've always wanted a go with one of those McDonald's fries scoopers.

This place is great for kids from toddlers up to about age 7-8. Slightly older siblings will also find things to do if you bring the younger kids. It has different levels and different areas/rooms to explore hands on activities, including a pretend mini market, bank etc. and lots of things to climb on. Also some quiet and more focused... More

This is a great place for kids to run around and role play different professions. You pay less if you go one hour before it closes at 8:00 pm, which is a great savings if you have more. than one kid.

We decided to take our young grandchildren and found there was something for all ages. The place was very crowded with a 40 minute wait in line. I was surprise how some areas of the museum did not feel too crowded but other areas were very chaotic. Try and pick a quiet time - if there is such a thing.... More
