Owner description: Explora is an innovative learning place, part science center, part children's museum, providing fun, truly hands-on activities in science, technology, and art for people of all ages, from toddlers to teens to adults. We have an early childhood learning area, including a special area for toddlers to explore, and children and adults enjoy not only our two main floors of exhibit activities, but our outdoor decks with views, giant building blocks, playground patio, and gift shop filled with entertaining and educational items great for at home or travel fun. We offer after-school, home school, and early childhood classes, plus winter, spring, and summer camps for kids. Located in Albuquerque's historic Old Town, Explora has free parking and is perfectly situated for a walk to the nearby park, shops, and restaurants. We close Jan 1, July 4, the week after labor day, Thanksgiving, Dec. 25. We close early at 2pm Dec. 24 & 31.

We typically take our grandchildren, and always want to stay longer than they do. The sciences are done so well here, with interaction, and hands on displays. You can/will learn here, no matter what your field is?

My daughter is two. I was a little unsure if she would have a good time because I was afraid that most of the exhibits would be above her age group. But, we were surprised! She had an amazing time. There were so many things to do. We didn't even get to do everything before she was exhausted and we had to take her home. We will definitely be back.

Not a lot of places to take kids and just let them have fun. While kids are doing their thing adults will be entertained too!

Nice on Occasion. The kids love it. I only wish they would open a little earlier....say 9am instead of 10am. There is lots to do so figure a good 1.5 hours plus travel time.

There many hands on exciting rooms to explore. Examine and ponder how music is made, make bubbles and a mess ,it's OK. Kids froms four to 15 will enjoy this adventure.
