From a mini dinosaur park to life-size sculptures, aquarium with Amazonian ambience of Colombia, living species, Film History, human mind, mechanical... More

You can spend most of the day here. Different areas to explore with lots of interactive modules and photo ops. It's science based. Some anthropology of Colombia, but mostly basic science. Great for kids big and small. Not a place you have to go if you only have only 1 or 2 days to explore Medellin. Unless it is raining.... More

The aquarium was awesome! The exotic species of fish and animals was amazing. Wear comfortable shoes, the place is deceivingly big. Admission is only 7-8USD and it takes a good 3-4 hours to go through it all. Definitely worth it.

We took a trip to see the aquarium and the beautiful surrounding park. We were surprised to find an amazing park with lots of mental challenging games which were great for adults and children alike Then we found on the top floor the interactive rooms testing you visual and mental attributes. We had a couple of hours of great fun... More
