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.

I was nervous about bringing my 3 year old granddaughter to Explora! because I thought she might be "too young" to appreciate all things scientific. Well...was I ever wrong! She LOVED the experiential learning...especially the water experiments. We spent hours and hours exploring all sorts of interesting areas. We will be returning there this week and, hopefully, many more times... More

Short visit in Albuquerque and we were glad we found this place! It is a perfect choice for families with kids! Our kids loved this place! Too bad we had to leave on the next day.

Great place for families with youngsters of all ages. The adults will enjoy it as well. There are many challenges to solve games and puzzles and lots of hands-on activities.

It's so much fun watching the grandkids discover new things at Explora! No matter how many times we take them there, they find something new every time. It's wonderful.

We love the explora - it is fun for all ages - kids to adults. The gift shop is a great place for holiday and birthday gift shopping. We always have a great time. You have to check out the elevator - it is one of the grooviest spots in the museum.
