In a city claimed to have more museums than any other on the planet, I guess it’s no surprise that at least one of them is dedicated entirely to children.
I’m not going to bore you with the deets, here it is in pictures.  Papalote Children’s Museum – a first-class, hands-on, multi-disciplinary, kid-centric, educational FUN zone in Mexico City.
