Even us parents enjoyed doing many of the activities! We weren't able to see everything because there was so much to cover which is... More

Medellín it's a beautiful place, and Parque Explora is an amazing part of the beauty of the city. It has a lot of things that the whole family can enjoy. Children are going to be really amazed with waht they are going to find there. And adults too!

If ever you have the opportunity to go to Parque Explora - Go. I recommend it over many of the other recommended activities to do in Medellín. I recently made it there after having lived in the city for a year, and it's the most entertaining and impressive place I have been while I've lived here. A friend and I... More

we took our 8yo here - it was a great way to spend a few hours of engagement in science through interactive stations. However you could be anywhere here; it doesn't make you know Colombia better, unless you engage with the young staff (many are helped by explora to pursue their career in science)

If you go to Medellin with young children you should separate a couple of hours to visit Parque Explora. It is an attraction with interactive activities for children. They also have a well maintained aquarium. The park has its underground parking.

Great day, spent 6+ hours here! Would recommend avoiding the weekend so you can avoid the crowds. The price is reasonable, and if you bring your student card you may be able to get a discount
