  • 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!
  • 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.
  • Definitely a must visit for anyone in Medellín. There are lots of fun experiments, a nice aquarium and some reptiles. The entrance is a bit expensive (24.500 COP), but you can easily spend 3 hours or more here. You can buy a combo ticket for the planetarium as well (37.500 COP).
  • A very fun place especially if you are going with active, competitive or athletic people, there are lots of challenges for mind and body. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the aquarium is also beautiful. Expect to be there half a day if not more.
  • Amazing! Excellent guides. Great learning opportunities. Super fun exhibits and even a sweet gift shop. An absolutely must do for adults and kids. Some exhibits don't have much English explanations but who cares. Go learn!
