Children's Museum (Museo de los Niños)#8 in Best Things To Do in Buenos Aires
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).
