Museo Tecnol贸gico (Technology Museum) - Museum Mexico City - Mexico

Huge, hands-on and interactive, the Museo Tecnol贸gico is a surprisingly cool place, full of gadgets, tricky illusions and things that can shock you鈥攍iterally. The museum may be geared toward students, but plenty of adults seem to get a kick out of the exhibitions as well.The numerous attendants explain and guide you through the exhibits. They don't seem to care how old you are; they willingly hook you up with whatever is at hand. Another perk is that many of the explanations are in Spanish and English.


Administered by the Federal Commission of Electricity, the museum opened in 1970 but underwent a dramatic transformation in 2000 to become the interesting place of learning and experiments it is today. The four large rooms of the museum have a little bit of everything, including "the impossible triangle," a talking Einstein mannequin, bits of Morse code, a replica of the first telephone, big dominoes to knock over, big billiard balls to knock together, levers to crank, and so on. Also on the property are huge engines and generators, a Bell 412 helicopter, a planetarium and a shop with educational toys.
