Certainly well worth a half day. The vivarium and aquarium are both amongst the best I've seen. The science side of things is also better than I've seen in some European cities. The cafe does great cakes and mediocre coffee, and is very reasonably priced.

You can really spend a whole day if you're really in to actually learning and experiencing every little piece of thing you can and do. Great for the entire family. Groups of kids. There's plenty to experience, and it is right off the 'La Universidad' Metrostation.

A group of us travelling in Medellin decided to have a day trip - turned into the BEST day ever!! Spend about 2 hours in just the first room. Loads of interactive exhibits, games, animals. Exhibition display is brilliant, staff were so helpful and lots spoke English. One of the best museums we've been to! Fun for all ages too.

It's a cool science museum and aquarium. It has several floors of aquarium, showcasing local species of fish and other species from other regions. It has places to eat outside the aquarium.

My husband and I wanted to get out of the rain and decided to take a chance in here. We ended up spending 3 hours here and loved it. Lots of hands on experiences and activity for everyone to enjoy. We paid 46.000 for the two of us.
