I would never have gone her but my 20's nieces wanted to go and I thought it was amazing. It was so much fun and took several hours.

I went there with my girlfriend as a last minute decision after visiting Parc Guell and had heard great things about it. It was definitely entertaining for a while however after exploring the bottom level we quickly grew bored. The upstairs levels hold nothing except large theaters and the planetarium which run shows throughout the day. Because we were there... More

This attraction was a bit out of the way and a good 10 min walk from the Metro, but then that also meant it was quiet and no queue to get in. It was very cheap to get in (8 euros for adults and children free) and kept us amused for 3-4 hours. If we'd have been organised and timed... More

I was quite excited to go when researching about it too. It is located close by Tibidabo mountain/amusement park. On the way there, you will see gorgeous streets and buildings (I sure did take a lot of pictures of those) This was definitely my favourite part of visiting Barcelona! I found myself enjoying and learning at the same time. The... More

Great for kids and adults - and only 4 Euro for the three of us. Truly wonderful and great as a safe haven from the peak of the sun.

This is what ALL science museums must aspire to. It is huge and full of interactive wonder. We got in free with the Barcelona card, otherwise it is just 4 euros for adults to get in (and worth every penny). I actively sought to visit this place thanks to many excellent reviews and I was, despite my high expectations, still... More

We headed to Cosmo Caixa on one of our last days of a week in Barcelona. It was primarily to find something for my five year old who had been very patient for most of the trip with his parents dragging him through Gaudi related sights. My only regret is that we did not allow more time for this fabulous... More
