Stopped off here one morning to give our 1 year old a break from sightseeing and days stuck in the buggy. You arrive for one of the sessions think they run every few hours and buy a ticket at reception. The museum is split into separate sections of hands on exhibits. They had a big soft play area for 0-3... More

Found this recommendation in my Rome guidebook, it is fantastic for little ones. There are 4 set times that you can visit throughout the day, so I would check the website or phone up prior to turning up. We went for a later session & was there for almost 2 hours. There are two levels - some science bits, mirrors,... More

Its an interactive museum for the kids, where they can play, explore and experiment for about 2 hours. Great option for a rainy day in Rome or when the kids need a break Rom walking around in Rome.

As you can imagine Rome isn't type of city that youngsters can appreciate. This place makes it all right for them. A lot of stuff to do for children from 18months and up. Visiting time is limited to 1:45min and tour starts every two hours. A must do if traveling with small children.

I went there with my 2 kids and they really liked it and enjoyed it. It's very useful. Kids can learn about new scientific things .I highly recommend this place to visit.

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.

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

Staying in Parioli

Neighborhood Profile
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.
