As a science museum it may not be worlwide innovative, but its location and surrounding public space makes it worth the visit. The Aquarium gathers species from around the rivers of Colombia in a very pleasent and not too long tour. Its great for kids in any case, good lunch at the cafetería.

Went with my kids ages 8 & 5 and they loved it, plenty activities to do and get involved in different role play like activities. Also has a great aquarium and an average restaurant inside, bathroom facilites etc. Be ready to spend the whole day here and to do lots of walking.

I get that they are trying so I raised my rating to Average from Poor, but seriously, this aquarium needs work. Definitely not for adults. Bring your kids or class trips all day long and have a blast, but otherwise it is definitely not worth the price of admission. Again, I know they are trying and I hope they get... More

This place was great. My girlfriend convinced me to go because it is on the expensive side. But we spent 3 hours there checking out the aqaurium and doing all the scientific activities. Great for kids.

I had a great time visiting Parque Explora. The staff members were very helpful. I don't speak good spanish but they tried their best to help me with the Interactive areas (Neuroscience, Physics and Communication) and 3D room. Most of the description is written in both Spanish and English. For 22,000 pesos (as of Jul 28, 2015) you can visit... More

Interesting and interactive afternoon. I spent just over 3 hours there. Very helpful and enthusiastic staff and I thoroughly enjoyed communicating with them in my less than amazing Spanish. Fun exhibits even for a 23 year old, i'm sure children and teenagers would love it even more.

Nice place if you're with young children but if Spanish is an issue I would not recommend this place, because everything is basically in Spanish.

Cool place in the middle of the city. Young children can have a really educative experience by interacting with science and other kids. The place is clean, safe, cheap and very didactic.

I was reluctant to visit the park because I figured it was just another kids museum but had an extra few hours in my day and decided to go since I was in the area. Well, I throughly enjoyed it. Skip the second floor and go straight to the third floor. I only had 3 hours and I started from... More
