“Awesome place for kids of all ages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

We have a membership and go at least weekly to Explora. My 2 and 4 year old boys *love* it (and have since before they were able to walk). We usually take a picnic lunch, play for a while at the exhibits inside, then head outside (when the weather is nice) and eat our lunches on the patio or in the grass then play on the jungle gym to burn off the energy before naptime. My kids love storytime, the trains, the building blocks, the music section, and the water exhibits. When we have gone with older kids, they have always had a great time, too. Highly recommend for families!

“Fun, Fun, Fun for the Kiddos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Kids can spend hours in this place. There are so many activities to partake in. Either eat before you go or have lunch while you are there because you will be there for a long time. Everything in Explora is interesting, even for adults.

“Best thing to do in ABQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

Everyone, age 2 to 65, had a wonderful time. We could not have been happier. Highlight of the trip. One especially enjoyed the water feature, one especially enjoyed electricity and lasers, one especially was delighted with the wind experiments. Wish we could have stayed longer. I would never get tired of going to Explora!
