    Nice surprise

    Reviewed 29 August 2017

    I wasn't sure my child will be into this museum but it turned out he really liked it.  He enjoyed the art exhibits, but particularly a collection of popular art (which is full of vibrant colors and interesting art pieces), he loved peacocks and  baby peacocks which were literally everywhere in the surrounding gardens and were not afraid of people at all, and finally, he was fascinated with the hairless Xoloitzcuintles (a very rare breed of dogs ) which run freely in one section of the park (it seems like they are let out from their kennel a few times a day). Overall, it was a nice visit and my whole family really enjoyed it.This is a personal opinion of a KiddieMundo user.

    Tips

    If you want to take pictures at the museum you really should buy a photo permit with your admission tickets. The museum staff really controls it.
