Carolina serves up a smorgasbord for the head, heart, and soul
The Carolina Children’s Museum is an educational and recreational attraction for children and adolescents (and even adults) that puts a high premium on hands-on fun. A short drive from Luis Muñoz International Airport, it boasts more than 100 interactive exhibits through which young visitors can learn about and explore a wide range of subjects including the environment, science, art, and technology. The signage and instructions posted at each exhibition are in both, Spanish and English.
A massive volcano model that “erupts” periodically is the centerpiece among a seemingly endless array of educational installations that allow visitors to get involved with themes such as marine life, ecosystems, construction and much, much more.
Dress-up activities let kids role play through a range of professions, wearing costumes, wigs, and make-up all waiting to be used on the theater stage. Budding broadcasters can try their abilities reading the news or delivering a weather report on camera in the pretend TV station.
A retired commercial jetliner is a perennial favorite and is a big draw, giving kids access to all parts of an airplane, including the cockpit, that are normally off-limits to fliers.
There is a playground that is open to all, a go-kart track and special areas designated to celebrate your birthday or special event.
THE MINI ZOO
The Mini Zoo provides a natural scenario to observe, touch and even to feed the different species that live in the museum. With more than 20 different species of farm and exotic animals, the Mini Zoo will give you an unforgettable experience while you learn about nature, animals and their habitat.
The Jungle Trip
Enjoy an eco-friendly journey through the Blasina Lake, part of the San Juan Bay estuary that surrounds our beautiful museum. You will explore the flora and fauna that lives in this area. You can take a guided boat ride in one of our “Paseadoras”, or you can tour among the lake in one of our paddleboats.
