  • Come rain or come shine, the Caracas' Museo de los Niños remains a bright spot in the city. There have been important efforts to update some facilities, and yet part of the interactive exhibits have such simple interactivity and deal with such basic principles that they retain their wonder and awe for children. Even in the digital age, they are timeless. Moreover, young parents might find newer attractions: for toddlers and kindergartners, colours and shapes; for kids and pre-teens, space exploration, the fight against drugs and the newly opened paleontology area. The museum's remains as a testimony of the extraordinary vision for childrens' development of Alicia Pietri de Caldera. ....... A full ticket goes for about 3$. The area around the museum can be rough, but the outing is worth it.
  • I love this place!
