“ A wonderful surprise”

“Yes! And for adults and kids alike.”
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.

We went to this museum and were positively surprised by it. The kids had a blast experimenting with math, energy, velocity, sound, waves and many more. It's a must see if you have kids. We'll definitely return there.

A great place in the middle of Recoleta neighbourhood where kids can experiment scientifically at their leisure. Do not miss the fantastic shows or demonstrations that are offered. I particularly enjoyed the one on electricity.

Seems to be a nice place to go with kids. Only the place was packed. I Would suggest organizing small group tours with people who could explain what the experimenta were all about.

Characterised by the French-style mansions which are
the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the
true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this
neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos
Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment
buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions
turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude
an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll
