I brought my 8 year old son here after 3 days of sightseeing and he had a great time. The signs are in Italian, however, they do have English translations on most things. Lots of things to touch and play with. The only drawback is that there are only certain times they allow you to come in... so you must... More

First time that I bring my son, along with a friend and her son, both of the same age (3 ½ years). The museum is nearly a playground complex with stimulating and creative games and activities for children, mostly valid from 5 or 6 years old. We went on a Sunday, so despite an imaginary closed number for midday access... More

At this place, they have managed to get a lot of activities out of few material things. Younger kids get practical introductions to technical stuff through hands-on experiences, enjoying it. Bigger ones - above nine-ten, say - will be a bit more bored. The slightly chaotic atmosphere is inspiring for some, irritating to others.

The place is full of hands on stuff for different ages. This was our second visit, My son, now 9, was 5 the first time we visited and he loved it. The place had very few people around and he could do anything he wanted. The motto is, "It is forbidden not to touch", which is perfect for kids. This... More

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

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.
