The intention of this exhibition, which is part of the Centre for Public Understanding of Science and Technology, the National Polytechnic Institute, is easily explained as a physical phenomena. They use daily like to explain theoretical principles hat may seem very difficult to understand. For example, explaining how refrigerators are powered by the principles of thermodynamics, or how wind power can be generated.

One of the best rooms in the museum is one in which there are puzzles on energy and the universe that you can solve. It is set with pieces representing the planets in the Milky Way and explains how energy from the sun affects different physical, chemical and even biological science.

They also have temporary exhibitions, performing schools and other institutions devoted to science.

The museum has an auditorium equipped with a digital projector. It is perfect to feed the curiosity of children, as there are workshops where they can do experiments or enjoy recreational and cultural activities.

They offer guided tours (by appointment). Through each of the spaces, it takes approximately two hours. Groups of students often come with their teachers, so it's not surprising to see them copying the information from the cards.
