The Mirador Interactive Museum (Museo Interactivo Mirador) contains plenty of child-friendly activities, allowing wee ones to brush up on science and technology while you take a quick breather from sightseeing. Kids ages 4 and older can release any pent up energy by participating in stimulating activities like construction, mining robotics and electromagnetism workshops. For youngsters requiring more stimulation, one of the museum's 300 hands-on exhibits — which specialize in art, technology and science — are sure to hold their interest.
According to recent visitors, the museum is a great stop for both the young and the young at heart. One TripAdvisor user describes the museum as a "really special treat. In a playful setting, basic concepts […] are taught in an entertaining manner. Parents can lay back or just sit down and let kids do their thing."
You'll find the Mirador Interactive Museum located in the La Granja neighborhood, located about 7 miles southeast of the Plaza de Armas. You can reach the museum via the Mirador stop on metro Line 5. General admission costs 3,900 CLP for adults (roughly $7 USD) and 2,600 CLP (about $4.50 USD) for children ages 12 and younger; on Wednesdays (with the exception of holidays), tickets are reduced to half price. The museum welcomes visitors from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Tuesday to Sunday. For additional information, visit the museum's website.
