This place is actually very small and is more a playroom than a museum. The very few activities are designed mostly for playing and amusement not really for learning and the price (8 euros per person) seams actually high for what they offer. The kids had fun and liked it but they also do at the playground and they were... More

There is not so many places to go with small chidren. While travelling abroad, you should always keep it in mind that you have to entertain and aducate them. From this point, Explora is nice. Entertaning&educating. But still there is a big disadvantage. They have a fixed time visits, sessions like in the cinema. 1.5 hour in, than you have... More

Took our 4 year old here and she had a blast w/ the veggie picking, food shopping, water play, big thingy that moves pebbles around (like a mine) and just overall learning... not touristy at all, just a great place for kids to learn through play!

Traveling with kids between 3-9 I would recommend the Explora kids museum. They have set times when they allow you in. We had not done the research before we got there so we had to wait for an hour before being allowed in. By doing this they make sure there are not to many people there at once. Introduction is...

We came here to give the 4 year old a break from sightseeing. It was a great time. Many things to do, with explanations in English. There is also an associated restaurant next door. Do note that there are several time slots each day for visits; Find out more online before going.

This place was great for the kids, but let me note some of the negative aspects of explora before setting off with all the fun stuff. We had to wait some time (30 mins or so) till it was our turn to go in, the place works in "shifts" asbto not cause overcrowding, so make sure to research the shifts... More

It was amazing for little kids, but it was amazing and for adults! The employees there are very kind and they explain everything (in Italian and English) and they are very friendly too! You don't have to wait for a long time! You get in immediately! There are lots of children parties there,so there are lots of kids! The children... More

Staying in Parioli

Neighborhood Profile
Parioli
Young and well-to-do families are the street flavor of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has several great sporting clubs known for tennis and riding, a wonderful modern art museum, easy access to the zoo (Europe’s oldest), and is nestled around Rome’s very best parks including Villa Borghese, Villa Ada and Villa Glori.
