Papalote Museo del Niño
When traveling with children, "The Kite" Museum (in the Nahuatl language, butterfly ) is an ideal place to visit. Opened in 1993 the museum offers a hands-on, interactive, ultra-modern experience, including an IMAX theater. It is divided into five major sections dedicated to discovering the Human Body, Communications, Our World, Expressions and Con-Ciencia (a play on double meanings: "Con-science" to also mean With-science). Workshops, a theater, restaurant and a gift shop are also open to the public.

There is a huge floor puzzle of Mexico as you enter the museum with all the mexican states. we spent a good half an hour putting it together. It was great!
All of the exihibits are in Spanish only but we were able to figure out how to work most of them.
I would definately recommend this museum. I would opt for a visit during the day as it seems less busy, I've heard that evenings can be very packed.
