Lots of buttons to press and things to interact with! This was a really well done museum and the perfect place to spend a cloudy morning. For 4 euros, I thought it was really good value for money.

Both the temperature and area. Lovely old squares and buildings look hard enough and you will find good bars and less touristy restaurants

This is really the place to spend your time and learn something new about history, problems in our time, science, or the wonders of nature. There are a lot of interactive experiments which illustrate how phisics really works as you have learned. There are also a lot of aquariums with many kinds of interesting crearures living in the water and... More

My wife and I went to the CosmoCaixa for the first time and enjoyed it. I think that children enjoy it more than adults because they can have hands on experiences here, touching the scientific exhibits. For us the most interesting place was the Flooded Forest. You could see the fish from inside the museum and then you could go... More

It is not close so bear in mind you'll travel at least 45 min. But it is totally worth it. Everything is high tech. You have aquarium, zoo and planetarium. We loved the flooded forest. Nothing I've seen before. The price was 4 EUR i believe. The rain forest was great and the 3D movie was unique experience, less than... More

A high tech general science museum, and a high tech natural sciences museeum, and a high tech zoo with aquarium, and a high tech planetarium. Essentially a high tech playground, so be ready to spend at least 4 hours unless you want your kids to hate you for the rest of your holiday. We were particularly impressed with the Amazon... More

The CosmoCaixa Barcelona was by far the most fun we had for the least amount of money (which is saying a lot in a tourist destination like Barca). For merely 8 Euro, I got a ticket to the best science museum I've ever seen. I mean, there's a mini-frickin-Amazon Rain Forest inside.There are so many interactive exhibits, people of all... More

Even though it is rather far from the city center ( from Barceloneta I had to change transportation 3 times), you will not regret it. This museum is interactive and extremely interesting. You have the possibility to try several experiments. The flooded forest is breathtaking. The price of the ticket is very low:4 euro comparing with other Barcelona touristic sites.... More

This wasn't on my list to begin with. But reading other people's reviews I decided to go. And I'm not sorry. We all had a lot of fun, because it's not only educational but also very interactive.
