Parque Explora, Medellin Reviews
We took our small children to the Parque Explora and were absolutely delighted. We are two scientists and this was THE BEST science museum we have ever visited. Not only were the displays done well, but the staff were so enthusiastic and helpful in trying to teach the visitors the underlining science behind the exhibits. We spent five hours and it wasn't enough - we had literally five minutes left for looking at the Time display (how ironic, right!) One staff member spoke very good English and my children made him follow them to each exhibit and explain things, which he happily obliged and thereby truly enhanced our entire visit. It was a highlight of our whole trip in Colombia. Definitely recommend for families with younger children, but I believe it would still be lots of fun for older (teenage) children and everyone still curious at heart.
So many cool things to do. Reminded me of the Exploratorium in SF. A great place for adults and kids alike, with an aquarium, vivarium, and other super cool exhibits to learn and enjoy. I would highly recommend visiting if you are in Medellín Colombia.
So so amazing!!! Felt like a child again!! It’s fun for all ages and you can spend the whole day here. We stayed 5+ hours here, running from the planetarium to the aquarium - everywhere! Most things are interactive and you can send videos and photos to your email when you used some equipment. The only thing is avoid the Mexican restaurant - the food is horrible.
Marvellous experience, especially for children! They have a bit of everything in this Explora Park where you can really learn and explore in a ludic way. The staff is young, dynamic and very helpful. I will not leave the Explora Park without good memories, believe me! A must-do activity with kids. You will need at least 3-4 hours.
Nice place to amaze yourself about the wonders of natural and social phenomena. You have to give a try. Their constant renovation and events ensure that their is always something new to see.
