My 6-year old child enjoys this children museum in Rome very much. This is the place that he likes the most in Rome. There are a number of games asking a child to think hard, but full of fun. And there are a number of ways teaching knowldege to children, in a very vivid and fun way. Really cool. Only... More

Great location, Explora has a variety of play areas for different ages. There are allotted ticket times so be sure you plan in advance and book on busy days. Arrive early for the zipline (flying fox), water pump and channels and other outside play equipment...... also the nice café with amenities. Overall most of the activities were well planned and...

My child (almost 6 years old at the time of visit) was very happy with what she found at Explora. Numerous interactive playstations kept her busy till the end of the session. The fire station, the bank, the water play area and the supermarket area were her favorites. My opinion is that the duration of each play session should be... More

Be aware that you cannot just turn up to Explora and expect to go straight in, you must book an appointment which lasts for a couple of hours and in turn means that it doesn't get too busy. Our two children really enjoyed themselves here, I had worried that my 9 year old might have been bored, but she loved... More

I took my 2yr old grandsn to Explora and he enjoyed it very much. There is a lovely cafe for refreshments. The play area was terrific. Our grandson loved the water play. My only reservation was that we went to use the baby change facility at 1.55pm and the outer door was locked and that meant there was only one... More

the only problem, that it is much in Italian, but all the games are also described in English, & the staff is helpful, so it is nice for cooling down your children after a long day of visiting historical attractions

This place is amazing for anyone with young children. It has so many sections to explore over 2 floors - you won't notice those 2 hours you have for your visit. My advice would be, go early, especially with small kids. We went on a Saturday at 10.00, there were only 4-5 families and we could each occupy any section... More

A place for kids where they can explore. They can play and experience daily life. You don't stop to play because you get older. You get older because you stop playing... Stay young. Only for young kids.

We were underwhelmed by this place maybe because of the expectations set from reading the previous reviews. Our 3 year old enjoyed himself but no more than if he was playing at a free playground. He was mostly interested in the supermarket, moving the gravel up and around using the pipes and turbine screw handles, and the fire engine and... More

Our group had 5 children with an age range of 5 yo down to 1yo, and it was just perfect! There was a separate closed-off no-shoes section just for under 3s, which was great for the baby. All the kiddies had so much fun, running up the spiral, playing with the mirrors, water-play, fire engine and the huge play-kitchen area.... More
