Visit this park if you are in Medellin. From the outside you can start enjoying the architechture, then as you pass through the acuarium and the expositions, you will be marveled. Great family getaway but it can also be throughly enjoyed by adults of all ages.

Good visit which I enjoyed. Had a nice selection of marine life and explanations of each. While I was there I noticed a lot of school children but they were well behaved and posed no issue.

In a world filled with kid's museums, city and national aquariums, science parks, and other ways to tap tourist dollars, the Parque Explora is mediocre at best. As a resident of Medellin, I am thrilled to have Parque Explora available to the city of Medellin. However, as a world traveler, I am hesitant to offer rave reviews of something that... More

The aquarium was slightly underwhelming however the 3rd floor hosts an interactive area that was fantastic! My spanish isn't the greatest but the staff were incredibly patient and enthusiastic in showing me how each experience worked. Highly recommend a visit!

The place is a bit over rated. The fish tanks hold sweet water fish from around the area. It would be grat for kids and a vit dull for adults. It is located at the Botanical Gardens, wich was a better experience.

I the aquariums have some very exotic fishes and the grounds are clean, have interesting exhibits and everything is well maintained. I thought the entrance fee was a big steep for Colombians at $22M pesos, but it's the overall experience that counts. The street vendors surrounding the park add to the ambiance, and I would reccomend you get the mazorca,... More

I had a wonderful time exploring and learning in Parque Explora. I went on a day that was specifically open to schools. I loved watching the passion of the children, the guides were more than willing to provide extra explanation. This is a modern, clean and well laid out facility. I don't like crowds and never felt that I was... More
