It's place is a real gem, a bit far from the touristic routes and harder to get there but it's really worth visiting - especially with kids ! It's a science museum but practically everything can be touched or played with and 90% of the descriptions are also in english. Definitely the best part is the "amazon jungle", complete with... More

Took our grandchildren (live in BCN) several times and they always find something new to see and learn. One of the biggest natural science museums in Europe but not on the sightseeing list for most families visiting BCN. You should take your kids.

Couldn't believe how great the value for money is - only cost us 3-4 euros each and we spent about 3 hours there! The exhibits are very informative and there are plenty of interactive displays for the kids to play with. Also check out their indoor rainforest!

This is an amazing science museum. A very big place. It has a lot of exhibits and a lot of them you can operate and use to get to know with the different laws of physics. Get ready for hours of fun and learning. You can spend a half of a day there. Very recommended for children above 7 years... More

I think it is the grestest museums of science I have ever been in my life. I was alone but I am sure it is very interesting to come here with children 6 to 15. Lots of them were there and all had a lot of fun.

Interesting for all the family, small or older kids or just by yourself. We spent almost a whole day there, as they have a good buffet-restaurant, so you don't need to leave for lunch. The amazonian flooded forest is amazing, I never have seen such a good simulation.

Not better than the one in London but is a great science museum. Place is also easy to find. Entrance fee is also cheap, worth to spend 3-4 hours there...

Planetarium, aquarium and hands-on science museum, and only 2 euro to enter. It's quite a ways so take a cab. Great for rainy day or if you have kids.
