This is a complex of museums, geared towards adults and children. The architecture housing the museum is exceptional on it's own and the museums are all well done. We spent the entire day here exploring, it's well worth the visit. Also, our admission was only $14 to see everything, you can't beat that!!

No matter how old you are this place is really interesting!!! Many cool activities that blow your mind! The aquarium is huge and has many large fish inside.... If you love dinosaurs there are many of them on the first floor. You need at least 5 hours to finish all the exhibitions, so come early.

The aquarium, theatre exhibit, movie and other science exhibits were very good too. Our kids were very into exploring and could have spent another day at the museum. The... More

Spent a whole day at the park with the kids. So many interactive activities! Catered to all ages, most of the staff spoke English which was a plus for my kids.

This a great ting to do whether you go with kids or not. If you are visiting as a tourist there's probably better local things to do -this doesn't show anything about Colombia or Medellin-, but overall it's a fun experience!
