Museum of Shapes, Spaces, and Sounds

All aboard, families!

A most singular museum and school field-trip favourite, since opening in 2002 the Museo de Formas, Espacios y Sonidos has been another must for visiting families. Housed in the old railway station on Avenida 3 between Calle 17 and Calle 23, it unsurprisingly includes an old train in which kids (and grown-ups, for that matter) can roam all over the locomotive and cars (brilliant for Wild West photo ops!). And true to its name, there are numerous exhibits dealing with the bodily senses of sight, sound, and touch — touchable gadgets, musical pieces, and examples of architecture and literature. Open daily except Sunday, 9 am to 2 pm.
