The CosmoCaixa is not on the touristy path, but once you find your way, the neighborhood and the museum itself have much to offer. My kids (11 and 7) really enjoyed the flooded forest and many of the hands-on exhibits. Our family ended up spending quite some time learning about quantum cryptography. We took the FGC line L7 to Av.... More

I loved it! Super recommend if you love science and nature as me and my family. We watched a planetarium session, and we felt inside the movie. The 3D system is awesome. Everything in museum is fascinating, there's so many things to see that we'll need back another day. You can eat delicious foods in a restaurant or a "cafeteria",... More

Ideal museum to discover science with kids. Big, interactive and with a huge inside "jungle". You can play with some of the objects exposed so it's easy to understand how the world works. There's an outdoor space were you can eat and drink. I loved it!!

A visit here is to be given the chance to be a messing child again without any telling you 'don't touch'. All the things you know to be true about science but get to see in practice. A great place for adults and kids alike - so rekindle your inquisitive nature and go visit.

This place is amazing! I wouldn't normally spend too much time in museums, but I spent 3 hours here, and still wish I'd had more time. Level -5 had a wonderful range of exhibits across physics, chemistry and biology, all at a good level of science while remaining accessible to all. The Mediterranean exhibition was extremely interesting, and the Flooded... More

My husband is an engineer so I had no choice but to tag along. Honestly, there are some fun things to do, but I have been too much better science centers. Good for kids- not so much for adults.

I was here for a conference and never would have thought of visiting otherwise. All the Gaudí takes the plaudits. Mostly a local, small crowd in this excellent museum/aquarium/science place. The cross-section looking into the tank is especially impressive.

Even grown-ups are never too old to learn :) Informative, child friendly, but serious enough to keep adults amazed as well. Facts are presented in a format that is easily understood. Fun to “play” around with the different projects. Good value for money. If you have the time, your kids will enjoy this outing, but you can surely go there... More
