    Very good amusement park has explored, what I liked most was the Aquarium because I saw fish that I thought not possible exist, to be less than 3 strata and bring public services invoice entry goes gratiiiss!

    In this park you will find various activities related to science in general: aquarium, vivarium, physical games, videos etc... discovery-based it better conviedra to children, but we never get bored as adults! Friendly staff.

    I think that already became very boring and monotonous. He claims to be very interactive but many of the attractions are out of service, they have not innovated much. The best is the Aquarium.

    This park was very fun! My mom and I had a short visit in Medellin and we wanted to explore what this museum had to offer. It was very interactive and hands on experience. The aquarium was very exciting full of colorful and awesome fish. The staff was very knowledgeable about the species on display and they were able to explain and talk to us about each particular animal. Although, I think the park is targeted towards a younger public, adults can definitely enjoy this park... especially the exhibits on the third floor. Lastly, the park has a Cafe where you can have lunch. The food is very tasty and they even have vegetarian options. Overall, i had a great time!

    This one is a good place for recreation and think on science for a moment. Is an excellent plan to make with your kids or just you, here you can know the biggest aquarium in Latin America and another things, let's visit it.

    Great and so huge place for people of all ages! I spent there the whole day and still didn't finish it all! You should spend there 2 days to see everything.

    I can't believe how wrong I was about this park, I thought it would be just another tourist attraction that would end up being boring but their is so much attention grabbing stuff here that I dare anyone to actually be bored of this place. There's plenty for kids and adults alike and would highly recommend visiting this (allow for half a day as there is tons to see). The staff are amazing here also, so helpful and approachable.

    Excellent for kids, amazing aquarium, electronic madness. It takes good 3 hours to tour. Pleasant experience and environment. Not expensive. Senior discount
