Great place to visit especially with kids

Wonderful attraction adjacent to Botanical Gardens. Informative and very well laid out. Kids will love the aquarium and hands on activities.

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.

A lot to explore from the Dinosaur to the latest technology, 4-5 hours required to completely visit the park. Three dimensional rooms are the highlight, taking the picture inside it and sharing to your mail id make it memorable.

I would definitely recommend going here to anybody, it's got a lot of interactive exhibits and although I'm not a huge fan of aquariums (animals in captivity) how else can I see an Anaconda that close?
