We visited Parque Explora after our metrocable trip to Parque Arvi. We spend the whole afternoon exploring the aquarium and the floors with interactive tests explaining science. The children loved these tests and wanted to stay longer. Unfortunately most of the explanations are in spanish but the staff is very helpfull and try to explain in english. We had a... More

parque explora has so many interactive attractions you will need a day to try them all. A very attentive Staff, many of them bilingual, will guide you through the pavilions. It has a small but really nice aquarium. This is a great place to visit with the kids. Easiest way to go is to take the metro to Estacion Universidad,... More

I particularly enjoyed the reptile room and the and the room about time. Lot of people say that this is... More

I like this place, it's usually got some cool themed attraction outside (like the giant dinosaur replicas or hands-on science exhibits), some film inside the the theater and of course the lovely aquarium. If you are a world traveler, I doubt you will be blown away but it should at least hold your attention. As a local, it's very nice... More

Hi, we hope you are doing well. It is so nice to know you liked us. By the way, the free admission only applies for locals, it is a family subsidy for the people from vulnerable communities in town. Have a nice day! More

Downtown Medellin, easy to access by Metro. In front of the Botanical Garden. Safe and clean place. Nice infrastructure. It´s a thematic park, not quite big, but constantly have new exhibitions. Worth the price.

Had not planned to visit since these children have access to beautiful kid-friendly venues in their home city of Seattle, Washington, USA. But based on other reviews, decided it would be a good Sunday afternoon activity. The whole family enjoyed everything. Not a huge aquarium but still very beautiful presentations. We appreciated all the descriptions being in both Spanish and... More
