Museo Elder de la Ciencia y la Tecnología information
This 21st-century museum is full of things that whirr, clank and hum. In a revamped dockside warehouse in Parque Santa Catalina, it's a great space to spend a few hours. You can pilot a supersonic fighter plane, see how rockets send satellites into orbit or ride the Robocoaster where a robotic arm whizzes you through a series of programmable manoeuvres. Children will be rapt – the space pod and Van de Graaff generator are particularly popular.
There is also a small theatre showing a regularly changing programme of 3D films.
