Owner description: Explora is an innovative learning place, part science center, part children's museum, providing fun, truly hands-on activities in science, technology, and art for people of all ages, from toddlers to teens to adults. We have an early childhood learning area, including a special area for toddlers to explore, and children and adults enjoy not only our two main floors of exhibit activities, but our outdoor decks with views, giant building blocks, playground patio, and gift shop filled with entertaining and educational items great for at home or travel fun. We offer after-school, home school, and early childhood classes, plus winter, spring, and summer camps for kids. Located in Albuquerque's historic Old Town, Explora has free parking and is perfectly situated for a walk to the nearby park, shops, and restaurants. We close Jan 1, July 4, the week after labor day, Thanksgiving, Dec. 25. We close early at 2pm Dec. 24 & 31.

“Super-duper fun for young and old”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

Hands-on science is waiting for you and your children to explore and realize. Many of our school children go here with their classes, but it's better to enjoy as a family.

“Explora”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

It's great and very interesting. I go at least twice a month and my granddaughter and I never get tired of it. The staff is friendly and helpful. You can take your own lunch and they have areas where you can sit and eat. Many things too do there is a great park across the street and two more museums. Old town close by and more great shops and restaurants to enjoy!!! There are fees to get in Explora and the other museums but worth the money.

“Very fun place for the kids”

Awesome science museum where kids can learn all sorts of things. We went in the morning and there were a lot of school groups, but they seemed to clear out around lunch.

“Explora is great for the whole family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

My grandson, 5 years old, lives in another town and when he visits, which is often, he wants to go to Explora. There are activities for the whole family and we all have fun. There are facilities to have birthday parties and other celebrations. I suppose there may be an extra charge for parties, but I don't know.
