The Centro Costarricense de Ciencia y Cultura (Costa Rican Science and Culture Centre) is an entertaining and ludic place where you can find a huge number of activities to enjoy a relaxed day with your family, but there are also choices for those who want to go alone.

The centre has three different areas which are grouped together in a perfect three-in-one, where you can enjoy activities such as theatre performances, artistic exhibitions and a children's playground. These areas are the Children´s Museum, the National Auditorium and the National Gallery.  

The Children's Museum is one of the most visited ones of San José that houses a variety of exhibitions: the Human Being Room, the Physical Sciences Room and the Universe Room.

The National Auditorium Theatre is one of the most technologically advanced facilities of the country, where you can enjoy diverse theatre performances. The theatre accommodates more than 700 people and it is the favourite one for political personalities to host their social events.

The National Gallery has become a reference point for Costa Rica's visual arts where you can find diverse exhibitions on works by both national and international artists.

The building that houses this three-in-one is one of the buildings with most historic contribution to San José, because it was a prison in the early 1990s. The building has been reformed and restored in order to create one of the most complete offers of San José, where you can enjoy its more than three thousand square metres and a huge number of activities.

The Costa Rican Science and Culture Centre has an official website where you can find information on the opening hours, different services that each area offers and curiosities.

If you want to get to the Costa Rican culture and science, do not hesitate to visit the Centro Costarricense de Ciencia y Cultura when travelling to San José.
