Great for the hole family and friends of all ages. The aquarium was super and apparently one of the largest and best in south America. The food choices were ok, but the exhibits are what's of interest. The outdoor fountains entertained the little ones for what seemed like hours. Lot's of interactive science exhibits. I recommend to anyone of any... More

It's a good science and animal exhibit, but if you have been to any major city, most have something like this. That is why I think most older adults may not appreciate this as much as younger adults and children. All the children looked like they were having a real good time. Many, not all, of the exhibits have translations... More

A lot of very interesting small animal/insect and aquatic exhibits, plus hands-on science and other exhibits. Great for children and adults alike!

Excellent if you want to see some of the Amazon and tropical fish. It is nice to see those in almost natural environment.

If you go. Plan to be there one full day. We only managed half a day and missed out on not being able to experience it all. What a disappointment because everything looked amazing. This place holds an Aquarium, and outdoor interactive park, 3 different indoor interactive rooms, and two dining areas. I could write endlessly about each room and... More

Like most science museums with hands-on exhibits, this interactive playground is both fun and educational. The museum features an outdoor area with dinosaurs and physics demonstrations, an intriguing indoor exhibit on brain function, a hall with reptiles and bugs, a well-stocked aquarium with the biggest freshwater fish you have ever seen, and a 3D theater. The 3D theater was the... More

The aquarium was interesting but overall the place was somewhat lacking but still worth spending a few hours for $11.

They are expecting donkey carts and straw hatted local farmers. Imagine their utter surprise to find a scientific park filled with physics challenges, the largest aquarium in latin america, a scientific museum that allows both play and learning on a grand scale. Make it a plan for your visit to Medellin then walk across the street to the Botanical Gardens... More

It costs 20,000 peso or 18,000 discounted (kids and seniors) for several hours of fun. A lot of interactive attractions where it is best to go midweek because weekends is to crowded.
