Explora is the most important interactive center for the appropriation and outreach of science and technology in Medellín, and it provides its local residents and visitors with the possibility to stimulate their creativity, experiment, learn having fun and build knowledge for the development, well-being and dignity of the city.
We have more than 300 interactive experiences spread over several rooms and experimentation locations for all. It also has one of the largest aquariums in South America. We have flexible spaces, memorable sceneries located under water, at the edge of the universe and in rooms awarded nationally and internationally for its unconventional experiences, which allow experiencing the deepest and truest meaning of innovation.
Some of its spaces create and mobilize an informed public and deliberating opinion: the children’s room, designed for children ages zero to six years; the 3D projection room, a pioneer in special effects in the city; and the Open room, which offers large-scale physics experiences in the middle of fertile native gardens and a cloud forest.
Explora is located in the northern part of Medellin, which, along with other nine projects, has being transformed from a marginal environment into the largest tourist attraction of the city in recent years. It is the hub of the educational district of science and technology of the future.
