With its modernist façade, bright red roof and funky urban design, it’s clear from the outsetthat Parque Explora is a museum for the modern age. Fun, interactive and engaging for all ages, this is one of Colombia’s most popular science museums, with an incredible 120,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor exhibitions.
The museum hosts over 300 interactive displays and activities, based around the themes of neuroscience, physics and communication, plus a 3D projection hall, a planetarium and an
impressive display of 22 animatronic dinosaurs. Another highlight is the indoor aquarium center, the largest freshwater aquarium in Latin America, where visitors can learn more about the Amazon region, spot over 400 different species of fish and see the world's most poisonous frog.
Parque Explora is located in the North zone of Medellín and is open Tues-Sun from 8.30am - 5.30pm, and Sat-Sun from 10am -6.30pm. Admission is COL$20,000.
