My seven year old daughter visited Explora two years ago and loved the interactive exhibits and games. After a day visiting the historic sites, she enjoyed playing with other kids and a respite from summer heat. This year I was looking for kids' activities in Rome and found out Explora offers summer camp -- "Campus." From 830 to 1630, my... More

We visited on a Thursday afternoon, spent about 2 hours between the museum, gift shop, snack & outside. Not very busy, so my two young daughters (ages 3 & 5) were able to explore every part of the museum. Good for young kids, might be a little boring for older children. Outside had a small zipline, which they loved.

We love taking our toddler to Explora! Activities for all age ranges! Our little one is not quite 2 years old yet and she has a blast here, there are also things for kids 13 years old! Many learning tools and fun activities. If you are looking for a fun indoor activity for your children while in Rome, this is... More

Explora is a well managed and maintained facility that is a blast for the whole family. My 5 yr old son had more fun here than anywhere else in Rome, which made our trip even more meaningful and memorable. Our child greatly benefited from the fun and unique hands-on activities, especially after repeatedly being told not to touch things everywhere... More

We really enjoyed this museum with our 6 year old daughter. There are slots where you buy tickets for a certain time, and then after 1 hr 45 min the visit is over. This has the advantage that it doesn't get too crowded, and at the moment the kids started to get tired the visit was over. It is entertaining... More

My 8 year old twins and 14 year old niece enjoyed this museum. There were many English subtitles for the science displays, but most of the exhibits were intuitive and English wasn't necessary. There is a huge water play area, a firetruck, play grocery store and kitchen. There's plenty to do inside as well as a small zip line and... More

This place is actually very small and is more a playroom than a museum. The very few activities are designed mostly for playing and amusement not really for learning and the price (8 euros per person) seams actually high for what they offer. The kids had fun and liked it but they also do at the playground and they were... More

There is not so many places to go with small chidren. While travelling abroad, you should always keep it in mind that you have to entertain and aducate them. From this point, Explora is nice. Entertaning&educating. But still there is a big disadvantage. They have a fixed time visits, sessions like in the cinema. 1.5 hour in, than you have... More

Took our 4 year old here and she had a blast w/ the veggie picking, food shopping, water play, big thingy that moves pebbles around (like a mine) and just overall learning... not touristy at all, just a great place for kids to learn through play!

Staying in Parioli

Neighborhood Profile
Parioli
Young and well-to-do families are the street flavor of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has several great sporting clubs known for tennis and riding, a wonderful modern art museum, easy access to the zoo (Europe’s oldest), and is nestled around Rome’s very best parks including Villa Borghese, Villa Ada and Villa Glori.
