Musée des enfants (Museo de los Ninos)

Entrée gratuite

Le musée des enfants du Costa Rica est une expérience amusante et interactive pour toute la famille.

Installé dans un château de toytown peint gaiement, il s'agit en fait d'une ancienne prison militaire historique, les expositions pratiques du musée couvrent toutes sortes de sujets.

Les enfants adoreront les 40 expositions explorant l'espace extra-atmosphérique, le plaisir à l'ancienne à la ferme, l'histoire, la musique, la science et l'écologie et la vie quotidienne au Costa Rica.

The Basics

The whimsical painted exterior of the Children’s Museum hides a surprising history. The building was formerly a penitentiary with a brutal reputation. After the prison closed, it lay empty until the former first lady of Costa Rica, Gloria Bejarano de Calderon, had the idea of creating an informative space for children. The museum is dedicated to the idea of learning through playing and exploring, and welcomes many thousands of visitors each year.

Visit the Children’s Museum on its own with a skip-the-line ticket or as part of a sightseeing tour of San Jose.

Wildcard

Get Some Fresh Air in Sabana Park With 175 acres (71 hectares) of forest green space crossed with walking trails, Sabana Park is the perfect antidote to a day of city sightseeing in San Jose. Open grassy areas invite soccer games and picnic parties, while the outdoor swimming pool is a great place to cool off from the hot Costa Rican sun.
