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.
At this museum, kids are encouraged to touch everything—from the science displays that explain how electricity, gravity and other marvels actually work. Here, it’s all about noisy, interactive fun.
You’ll find outlets of this popular chain of ice cream shops scattered throughout Buenos Aires. It’s easy to figure out why—its bright stores give you great views of the affordable sweet stuff you’ll soon be enjoying in cups, cones and more elaborate ice cream cake creations. Don’t miss the toppings, including Argentine favorite dulce de leche.
Next to the famed Recoleta Cemetery (final resting place of Eva Perón) stands an arts center with permanent and touring exhibits that also features theatrical and musical performances. Its first floor houses the kid-interactive Museo Participativo de Ciencias, where youngsters can wander on their own.
