This is a fun sciences centered facility near the Planetarium and Botanical Garden in Medellín. There are some interactive physics-related items on the ground level outside. We also went to a 3-D movie (more like a half hour clip) on caves. I think it would have been more interesting if I wasn't so distracted by the child talking behind me... More

A visit to Parque Explora was a great experience for a single traveler or a family. I was most interested in the dinos exhibits. There are two sets within the complex, one outdoors where you can touch them and is great photo ops, and the other is inside on the third floor. Only one of the aquariums is really large... More

I don't have anything bad to say about the place. It's just a more family friendly venue that wasn't for my demographic. Nice place to see though.

This museum offers many different exhibits. My favorite is the aquarium which is not large, but has a good variety of fish on display. There are also numerous interactive and static exhibits in other parts of the museum as well as a temporary exhibit area which had a dinosaur display while we were there. This is a good way to...

A great place to spend a day if you're in Medellin with children..but also has very interesting exhibits for adults. Right next to El Jardin Botanico and next to Metro Universidad...so makes for a great day ...

With twin 4-year-old boys, I have been to quite a few children's museums and have to say Parque Explora was a really good one. It's modern, clean, and well maintained. What I really enjoyed, beside the fact that it's really cheap, was the variety of exhibits to see and interact with. I liked the physics experiments that everyone can try... More

We spent the whole afternoon there and still didn't experience everything the park had to offer. There is a 3D film (in spanish, so don't bother going if you don't understand the language), an aquarium, temporary exibithions (dinossaurs when we went), and interactive pavillions about science. You have a lot of fun while learning and all the staff there are... More

Some interesting interating stuff. Learn scientific facts and visit a very nice aquarium where you'll discover the world's most poisonous frog.
