A very large building with lots of interesting activities also with English instructions. It was a shame that we hadn't kids with us, but we enjoyed the museum very much. There was even a large aquarium/rainforest inside the museum.

This is a very interesting place to go with children, although adults like it very much. As a science museum It has many different attractions, some are interactive. The rainforest is amazing, even for a Brazilian used to see this kind of landscape. Outside the museum there are a lot of attractions, like a weather station. There is a pleasant... More

CosmoCaixa is located on BLUE line of BUS Touristic and as such is one of the best, if not THE best "museum" that we have visited. Whole -5th floor is interactive and visitors can learn by trying and observing various laws of (mainly) physics and other natural sciences. CosmoCaixa is also home of beautiful rain forest in which there are... More

This is a great attraction, at a great price. Only E4 per adult, and under 16s are free. This is a very interactive, child friendly science museum and an entertaining way to spend the day. All the exhibitions were engrossing and the amazon rainforest was incredible. The kids were amazed. This appears to be a very popular school day trip... More

It is a exciting and informative museum. All exhibitions were professionally done and working. We liked the rainforest and the Antarctica exhibition outside. BUT it was difficult to navigate. We would recommend a overview map. Go there and have a very nice time!

I use to visit this museum once a year and I am never bored of it. It makes me come back to childhood. Almost everything that surrounds you can be touched and tried. It makes science much funnier and simple. It is a perfect place for going with family or partner. I strongly recommend it!

The Amazon exzibit is the best thing I've seen so far! A complete educational centre that should be included in the tourist guide books! Found it by accident when coming down by foot from Tibidabo...speechless!

This place is so cool! A giant amazon forest with capibara, piraima and other species... a matter room full of games which summarize all the boring concepts explained at school in a very pleasant way... Archimedes and meteorological explanations very easy to understand. It's just a pitty that the temporary exposition "Mediterraneum" isn't available anymore. P.S.1. go to the 3d... More
