Museo de la Luz - Museum Mexico City - Mexico

The Museo de la Luz is dedicated to all things light-related. From kaleidoscopes and electric gizmos to wonky mirrors, there’s more than enough here to keep you occupied for an hour or two, especially if you’ve got kids who will love the flashes and sparkles. A few exhibits seem to have taken early retirement though, and unless you speak Spanish well you may find it hard to get some stuff working, especially the interactive screens. The 16th century building itself was formerly the Jesuit Templo de San Pedro y San Pablo, and served as a young offenders institute, library and military college before undertaking its present day responsibility. Braille signs and wheelchair accessible.
