This is definitely one of the best science museums I have been to... even better than London! We had such a fun day. Played like big kids in the outdoor interactive part and really enjoyed the aquarium and reptile zone. The physics interactive zone was the best, and the staff so fun and helpful demonstrating things. Definitely worth a visit,... More

Although a nice parc where both children and adults can realy enjoy themselves, there were some things that annoyed me. For instance, in the aquarium you had to stay behind a yellow line on the floor at all cost. Not only can't you see everything but it was inpossible to use the information monitors next to the aquarium without trespassing... More

It's not Sea World. I went with a four year old, she had a blast. The aquarium is OK, but actually the insects, reptiles, and interactive science area made it worth the trip.

From the start to the end this was one of the best academic and fun experiences that I have. The many areas and many zones are so many that you cant make it in one day! Highlly recomended for family, friends, and kids!

Everything was connected by covered walkways. This was nice since we were there on a rainy day. Close to the Metro and well worth the $10 USD. Senior discount at age 60.

Recommended for families with kids and young adults too. I've been to the Atlanta aquarium and it was really nice. Big animals there. In parque Explora you have smaller fishes of both fresh and salt water. Also you are going to meet with some very rare reptile specimens like dangerous and little frogs. Interactive toys and games for all ages... More

A really nice salt and fresh water aquarium, some impressive insect and reptile specimens combined with a comprehensive, interactive science department. I grew up in London and visited the usual places there. IMO for kids, this is way more fun but bring a bilingual person. Trying to guess what the helpful guide is saying about an exhibit cuts into the... More

Very nice things to see and experience. You learn a lot by going there and play with the toys they have.
