  • Even though went to see the Park because I called it attention, is clearly a ride to do with children. The way in which it is organised thematically interested me much.

  • The Park is located in the North zone of Medellín near the University and recreational parks. Metro has routes with direct access to the University, Parque Explora, Parque Botanica and the Planetarium...  more »
  • Parque Explora is a splendor of just some of the natural beauty and flora that Medillin has to offer. Well worth the time spent walking around this beautiful location .

  • Fun and interesting museum with multiple rotating exhibits and science project. I don't have kids and came here alone, but still really enjoyed it. There's also an aquarium here. It's close to other great attractions off the University stop on the metro. Spend the entire day here, at the botanical garden, the planetarium and others.
  • A wonderful place to spend an afternoon in Medellin. The aquarium is full of strange and wonderful creatures like the mud fish. The reptiles in the vivarium were entertaining too. Did not go to be third floor due to time restrictions, but I imagine it would be entertaining form kids and possibly adults too.
  • Very cool interactive science museum. There are lots of activities and mini interactive science experiments ranging from mind tricks to insect collections. We should have dedicated a full day to see everything but we only spent 3 or so hours there leaving no time for shows. We were able to move quickly and enjoyed the experience thoroughly because one of us spoke Spanish fluently otherwise it might have taken longer and we may have missed out on some interesting experiments.
  • I was expecting to find this interesting but it turned out to be hugely fun as well. A great experience. There's an aquarium, reptile room, loads and loads and loads of interactive games and challenges. Spent all day in here and am tempted to go back to finish off the bits I didn't get to. If there is any criticism it's that there is no proper vegetarian meals available. But you get a wristband so you can easily go out and eat then come back in again.
  • Nice place, very educational. You have the chance to see and experience things that in your regular day life you won't be able to do. Every time another expo, so it is never the same things. Very huge aquarium and they give all the explanation needed. This park could take you up to 1 entire day. Great place, highly recommend it.
