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 take our grandson, now 4, to Explora for exploring scientific concepts...which I am sure will be somewhere in his unconscious when he faces the real thing. He has great fun moving from station to station, starting with sound/music, the construction tables room, and then the wooden train set... and everything in-between. We have a yearly pass due to membership. We are happy to support Explora.

We don't go as often as we should, but everytime we do it's never a dull moment. My son loves it, as much as we do. Perfect place for fun learning!

I had been here a few years ago when my kids were tiny and we didn’t think it was that great. Now that they are 6 and 4, we tried it again and it was really fun. It’s unique from other Children’s museums that we’ve been too. Geared a little more toward older kids and a heavy science focus. Both of my kids loved it and wanted to stay all day. They have the coolest elevator I’ve ever seen! The price is really good, the whole place seems clean and well taken care of.

This is fun for all ages! Soooooo much things to explore and such a neat place. Make sure you have about 3-4 hours to spare when you’re here. Admission price is very affordable too and again there’s so much to do!! Must come and visit!
