Childrens Museum and Costa Rican Center for Science and Culture in downtown San Jose.
This building served as a penitentiary after constructed in 1906, but was only used for 50-60 years as such before being closed.
The wife of one of the previous presidents of Costa Rica worked to have the facility completely remodeled and converted into a modern museum for children. Very impresive... and big!
