    The Children´s Museum is located in a building that was a prison called Central Penitentiary. For 80 years the place housed stories of horror, crime and violence. It was closed in 1979. The place was abandoned for more than 12 years. That was the way a dark chapter of Human Rights violations ended.

     The Children´s Museum was opened on April 27, 1994. This was an idea of the first Lady of the Republic of Costa Rica, Mrs. Gloria Bejarano de Calderón. She had the vision  of   developing   a   center   of   science,   knowledge,   entertainment  and  culture. Nowadays, it is an excellent place to play, laugh, learn and explore.

    “The opening of the Museum is an example about how happiness won the fight against darkness. It has made history as the first interactive museum in Central America. Also, the jail cells were transformed into educational rooms for kids” said, Roberto Brenes, journalist from the Children´s Museum.
