Parque Explora, Medellin Reviews
Really nice place where to spend an alternative day. Probably if you are used to the magnificence of American or European amusement parks you will not live the same fun. However, with a good dose of adaptivity, you will surely have a pleasant educational experience. I enjoyed it and I suggest it to everybody, adults and kids.
Nice exhibit! They nice activities to do will at the park. The guides know what they are talking about as you go to the different exhibits. A good place to visit with your children, friends, or spouse.
Wow...there is a lot of stuff to see and do here. You could easily spend a day with all the exhibits and the staff are very helpful (Spanish knowledge is advised). This is a perfect place to bring children.
I was hesitant about coming here with my girlfriend since we're both in our late 20's and early 30's and thought it was mostly going to be for children but we were surprisingly wrong. It was highly engaging, interactive and fun for adults as well as children. A lot of reviews here keep comparing it negatively to museums in Europe and in the USA but we enjoyed el Parque Explora much more than the science museum in our hometown of Boston and many museums that we've encountered in Europe. I highly suggest spending your morning at the botanical gardens directly across the street and then spending the rest of the day here.
Really nice kid-friendly museum. Lots of hands on stuff to do. It helps if you know Spanish, but isn't necessary. Four stars only if you compare it to a big city USA science museum for kids, otherwise, 5 stars. Easy access by metro, too.
