We had an awesome time at Explora. I just wish we had scheduled more time. They have things to do for kids of all ages that will keep them entertained for hours.

You don't usually find museums that cater to kids---this one does. Like everything else in Albuquerque (and out west) you travel to find it.

We could have spent the whole day there. Close to Old Town and the other museums and restaurants. You could make a day of the nearby attractions and never have to use a car.

This is a great place for kids to interact with science hands on. Don't miss the high wire bike ride. It can be expensive so make the most of time. Visiting more than a couple of times will get old for the kids.

Fun for kids especially. Lots of neat experiments and hands on things to learn and experience. Everyone could rest at the little cafe area and then there was a fun store for people to shop for cool gifts.

I have been an art fan and student since even before high school. I have known about this place and was beyond belief to finally be here. It did not disappoint.

This place really delivers. So many interesting hands on activities, I don't know who was more disappointed to leave, our 3 year old grandson or my husband. We'll be back to this awesome educational fun place.
