Lots of interactive exhibits here ranging from human behavior to science. The aquarium is especially fascinating with a huge variety of tropical fish. Cafeteria is good too! And its fun to watch families enjoying the park.

The Parque Explora has a lot to offer from experiments to nature. Great place for kids to learn and interact. It's recommended to expect at least 5 hours. A little food court is available on the 2nd floor.

Enjoyed the aquarium the most. Many different and interesting displays. Lots of them are interactive. Nice reptile and snake display. At the exit there is a mirrored exhibit that is amazing, the reflection of the drawing on the floor turns into portraits.

Great place for kids and adults to visit. We visited with two kids 5 and 6 and they loved it. It is an all day experience definitely going back again during our next trip to Medellin.

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.
