Good day with the kids

Went for the first time with almost all the family. This museum is ideal for the kids as the Spanish name implies. My kids and their cousins had a blast all they long. Lot of... read more

If you have a family with young kids, don't miss this. We saw lots of reviews from folks with older kids, but we have a toddler and figured we'd take a gamble and visit. It was a fantastic museum! You could spend hours and hours here trying out all the different rooms and learning so much. While some of the... More

What a beautiful older building right in the square up from San Juan gate. Right across from the big church. It looks like there's lots of exhibits. And the prices for under $10.

We went there and paid the $7/$5 child/adult fee to enter. Some of the exhibits were not working, but it was a little place for the kids to play. The volunteers and employees were very nice and helpful. All of the exhibits were in Spanish, so beware if you don't feel comfortable with the language. Some of the exhibits focused... More

Not good for the price you paid. Very small and too many of the equipment are not working. Need to pay extra to do craft using recycled materials. Not recommended.

Kids fun while visiting Old San Juan, kids will wonder across different iteractive settings(music, role play, cave). There are areas for all kids ages and personnel is very friendly.

The museum was the perfect rest stop for our kids (9 & 2) on our day trip to San Juan. It was a break for the 9 year old from all the walking and a chance for our 2 year old to get out of his stroller and run around. They could've spent all day here. There are 3 floors... More

I went here because of all the good reviews but it wasn't good for people who don't speak Spanish. All of the activities were in Spanish and all of the staff was busy helping the school students who were there visiting from local schools. They wanted me to let my three year old play in the small kids area while... More

It's a nice break for the kids to be kids and have fun. The first floor is for toddlers under 2 yrs. The second and third are for for 2-10 yrs. There are toys, books, dress up clothes, drawing/coloring, science displays, a cave with rubber spiders and snakes and a water exhibit (read: splash in the water). It's not going... More

Unfortunately this museum is boring and run down. Not impressed at all. Staff was nice but very strict to clean up, which can be difficult when trying to play and chase around a 1& 3 year old. No strollers allowed. They don't take AMX or large bills. No place to eat and don't allow food. If raining can't not get... More
