Visiting the Children’s Museum (Museo del Niños) in Guatemala City

Educating kids in a fun and inspiring manner takes too much effort that I don’t seem to have nor do I know how to do the stimulating on my own. That’s why it’s always good to have an outlet, a place to take the kids and expand their minds. And even more importantly keep them occupied while parents learn new stuff too. I would recommend every family visit a museum for children, here’s my review of Children’s Museum in Guatemala City.

Guatemala City has tons of things to do with kids, and going to the many museums the city has to offer is one of them, it’s an interactive adventure that every family should do with their kids. Another great option in the city to have fun with your kids is Divercity.

Children’s Museum (Museo de los Ninos)

We have been to Museo de los Ninos several times before, but it’s been a long while and my four year old boy was too young to really enjoy the place.

We have visited many, many kids museums all over the world and every time I am more and more impressed with the quality of this museum.

The hands on and personal attention is outstanding – there are over 40 different exhibits, and for each one there is a person working it.

And even if the museum fills up, they only take a small group at a time to educate the kids so that each child has the specialized attention they need and to fully understand what each exhibit is about.

  2. You guys always look like you are having so much fun! I love the images of your children enveloped in giant bubbles, though honestly, all of your suggestions sound fabulous!

  3. I love the human body exhibit that looks like a giant game of Operation. I would want to play that myself!

  4. We visited an interactive science museum in Finland that looks similar and it was so much fun!

  5. Museums are always great – and a children museum sounds like a perfect destination 😉
