It's great both for kids and adults, it has different exhibits, indoor and outdoor, and it's all about hands on learning and experiencing. Just downstairs of the metro station "universidad". Definitely a must when in Medellin!

Somewhere to go if it rains. The children especially will love the aquarium. All ages will enjoy the science exhibits. There are a few staff on hand who can explain in English.

An interactive science museum. It's great fun for all ages. My boyfriend and I are 30, and felt like kids having a ball at Parque Explora. We knew we would be visiting an aquarium, and the museum is much more than that. There are a number of interactive exhibits, and all were quite a lot of fun.
