Wonderful place to come both for the kids and adults; the entrance is very affordable; there are plenty options for the activities and for kids to ask the parents what they do actually remember from the school lessons. Do not miss the planetarium

i have been to science museums in many places, London, Glasgow, Paris, Munich and so on. This is definitely the best all round, accessible and fun one yet. The place is very modern and welcoming and has Spanish, Catalan and English signs on everything. There's lots of interactivity, a great layout and an amazing Amazon rainforest aquarium that'll put many... More

We came here after visiting Tibidabo. I recommend combining these 2 attractions as they are quite close to each other. And I would suggest doing them in this order, so any walking done is downhill... It is truly amazing value for money for such a small entrance fee and the amount of fun to be had. There is so much... More

First of all - easy to get to on Line 7 of the underground system - you are in Zone 1 the whole way, so just need a zone 1 ticket (the ticket machines are slightly confusing if you are used to just popping on the other metro lines) - and then a fairly short (although uphill) walk. The museum... More

When we first went in, I was concerned, since it's location is out of the city a bit, and it seems a little too quiet when you enter. There also seems to be very little there on the entrance floor, however, you follow a timeline all the way down to the bottom floor (which is several floors down) down a... More

I love being able to learn at the same time as having fun, so usually something like this would be right up my street. The rainforest was absolutely amazing, so many different creatures, most of which I'd never seen before. A truly great experience. However, I found navigation around the museum difficult. We got lost several times and eventually you... More

This museum is easy trip via the Metro system and a bit of a walk but well worth the trek. The museum has an incredible 5 story upsidedown Amazonian tree that you circle down to the ground floor with an exhibition around how it spreads it's seed pods to regenerate. The mediteranean sea exhibit was amazing and gave insight to... More
