When you alight the Universidad metro station, the exit delivers you on the upper level of the Explora, where there's no ticket office or any guards. So it seems you can wander around, use the restaurants, toilets and see the upper galleries, which include a...More

This is such a fun, entertaining and learning place to visit. It has an acquarium, and different interactive spots for learning. The staff is super well trained and extra charming. This was one of my favorite places in Medellin, also the Zoo is great!

Had a good time there but it's more for kids. There was a school visiting at the same time so it was really noisy.
