The best children's museum for kids of all ages. My 3, 4.5, and 8.5 years old had a blast! For those familiar, it's a cross between Norwalk children's museum and the Liberty Science Center. The museum of natural history is across the street.

My daughter and I loved this museum. There was so much to see and do, as well as learning the history of the dinosaurs in New Mexico. Take a couple of hours and visit this wonderful museum. The gift shop is pretty cool, too!

The kids always enjoy Explora. There's a great selection of experiments to try, and fun to be had. As an adult, I'm always looking for ways to entertain the kids. They love it. Actually, it brings out the kid in me too!

A ton of hands-on unique exhibits. We have been to a lot of science museum and Explora had many things we'd never seen before. Cons: the air conditioner was malfunctioning on the day of our visit, so it was extremely hot/borderline unbearable given the number of visitors that day. My daughter's only complaint was that there wasn't a lot of... More

My kids have loved this place since they were very small and they are young teens now. There is something for every kid to do and lots of opportunities for parents and kids to do stuff together. We love this place!

Fun museum for kids. Better to go during school hours so there are less people. Needs some work in some of the areas but overall a good museum.

Explora is awesome! My 2 year old had as much fun as me and my husband did. I loved marbles when I was a kid and right when you walk in is a marble playground (see pic) for any marble enthusiast. There are several water and air-powered experiments to play with. You can bike a high wire bike over the... More

Unfortunately we were only able to spend half a day here, but we could have spent another eight hours easily. At the time, my kids were five, seven and nine and they didn't want to leave when it was time to go. Every exhibit was thrilling and very hands on. They almost didn't know which exhibit to see next because... More
