If you like science museum this one you must visit. Also there is very nice Rainforest section with live animals, and on top floor some nice fossils. I would recommend to visit if you are in Barcelona for more than few days.

Great price/quality ratio. For 4 euros you have access to big, entertaining museum. If you spend more than week in Barcelona, this is a must-see.

great for us on a rainy day, and we are two 29 year olds. Spent more than 4 hours there. The cafe serves snacks and beer and coffee. The imax show was more for kids, everything else was really fun.
