Essentially a playground, this interactive museum is comprised of rooms where kids explore a miniature Buenos Aires. Complete with a hospital, a newsroom, a TV station, and a post office, they run around replicas of city landmarks. Kids particularly love climbing through the mock plumbing system and playing doctor, reporter, and other professions. One TripAdvisor raves, "I was blown away. This place exceeds every other place I have secretly been bored in before."

The museum is located in Abasto Shopping Center, a massive complex found southwest of Recoleta and accessible from Corrientes Avenue. You can easily reach the museum via the Gardel subte stop. Admission on weekends costs 50 ARS (about $11.50 USD) for children and 20 ARS (about $4.50) for adults. On weekdays, prices increase to 55 ARS (about $12.50) for children and 20 ARS for adults. The museum welcomes visitors from 1 to 8 p.m. Wednesday through Monday. For additional information, consult the Children's Museum's official website (written in Spanish).

#1 Palermo

The chic, sprawling neighborhood of Palermo in north Buenos Aires is divided into three parts: Alto Palermo, Palermo Chico, and Palermo Viejo (which is further broken into Palermo Soho and Palermo Hollywood). Alto Palermo is known for its museums and urban parks, like Carlos Thays Botanical Garden. Palermo Chico, which hosts extravagant mansions tucked behind the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), is a hidden spot often overlooked by tourists. And Palermo Viejo is where you'll encounter the most color and local flair. Palermo Soho houses a trove of high-end boutiques, bustling cafés and bars, and cobble-stoned streets. Neighboring Palermo Hollywood, located just north of Soho, brims with lively tapas bars, film studios, and festive outdoor markets.

Most travelers agree vibrant Palermo is a comfortable place to stay with easy access to public transportation and authentic restaurants. "Safe, fun, great food, trendy […]. While Recoleta still receives all the referrals Palermo was for us a better representation of what Argentina was really like," claims one TripAdvisor user. There's plenty to do in Palermo. The only question is where to start. You can reach Palermo easily via subte Line D to Bulnes.
