This is a welcoming, architecturally interesting but mostly, an interactive science museum that tries to simplify scientific knowledge in an interactive way .. so that kids can pick it up effectively. Definitely add it to your itenerary when in Barcelona with kids over 7yo.

What a surprise finding somewhere that does not cost a small fortune to visit - adult tickets are €4, children under 16 are free. Plenty of buttons for the kids to press and the adults too. The best part of the museum has to be the rainforest, my wife loved the capybara 9looks like a big lazy dog) All the... More

My husband and I loved this! One of our favorite things on our trip to Europe. Loved the rainforest exhibit and the various others. Something you have to really see to experience.its a little outside the city center, but if you're in Barcelona GO!

This is a great science museum. It has so much to see, from experiments and demonstrations of physical phenomena to an amazing tropical rain forest right in the middle of the museum. True, it’s located a bit off the center but it’s really easy to get there with line 7 (brown). Just get off at Tibidabo Av. (last stop) and... More

Took train to Av. Tibidabo and across the road caught the 196 bus to the science museum. Very impressive building, great wax work of Einstein at the ticket desk. Went down to the 5th floor, where the main body of exhibits are. We are not Spanish speaking but everything was written in English for the main part so no problems... More

A fun family day out - something for all of us here (our 10 and 11 year olds included!) children go free, €4 each for adults. Easy to find, we walked up the hill from Av Tibidabo metro station. Plenty of outdoor space for a picnic and lockers to leave your rucksack in. If only we had discovered them on... More

A ton of physics experiments that help you better understand the world we live in. I you travel with a child I think this is a must go. For me was the first science museum visited and now I'm searching for the next.
