Participative Science Museum, Buenos Aires

The Participative Science Museum in Buenos Aires is a hands on teaching, children oriented museum. The motto of the museum is, ‘Forbidden not to touch’.

The Participative Science Museum has few rooms but is packed with interesting things for children to do. It is run by the nonprofit Foundation of Science Museums and opened its doors in 1988. The focus of the interactive exhibits is to teach children and adults why things happen and what makes things happen. The goal is to make learning science and math enjoyable for children. The philosophy of the museum is touching each exhibit and learning while doing.

The Participative Science Museum offers enjoyable science tips and tricks for children and adults. Exhibits help children understand optics, natural, music, electricity, magnetism and electronics among other scientific disciplines. A popular exhibit is the, ‘Don’t Kill Me Math’ display which helps children understand the dreaded subject of mathematics using simple tricks. During the school year the museum attracts school children who are brought by their schools to learn from the interactive displays. Most of the exhibits are in Spanish and visitors who do not know the language may not enjoy the museum as much as bi- lingual tourists and locals.
