Papalote Museo del niño, Cuernavaca

Vicente Guerrero # 205, col. Lomas de la Selva, Cuernavaca, Morelos

In what was once the Casino de la Selva, is now the Papalote Museum. It's a relative of the same in Chapultepec but is slightly smaller and has its own charm. In one of its sections the famous murals can be seen that for many years gave identity to the building. In the Papalote Children's Museum of Cuernavaca there is the Blue Room of Van Gogh, a room to sharpen the senses of hearing and touch in a camera obscura, and harmonize some notes in a giant Kandinsky piano. Although it is a place for kids, there is fun for everyone.
