Lots to see. The amazon rain forest is amazing and so cleverly built so that you can see both above and below the water. Also loads of fascinating scientific displays with many hands-on. At €4 this is real value for money. The cafeteria has a good choice at reasonable prices and seating inside or outside in the sunshine.

Lots of buttons to press and things to interact with! This was a really well done museum and the perfect place to spend a cloudy morning. For 4 euros, I thought it was really good value for money.

Both the temperature and area. Lovely old squares and buildings look hard enough and you will find good bars and less touristy restaurants

There are a lot of interactive experiments which illustrate how phisics really works as you have learned. There are also a lot of aquariums with many kinds of interesting crearures living in the water and... More

My wife and I went to the CosmoCaixa for the first time and enjoyed it. I think that children enjoy it more than adults because they can have hands on experiences here, touching the scientific exhibits. For us the most interesting place was the Flooded Forest. You could see the fish from inside the museum and then you could go... More

It is not close so bear in mind you'll travel at least 45 min. But it is totally worth it. Everything is high tech. You have aquarium, zoo and planetarium. We loved the flooded forest. Nothing I've seen before. The price was 4 EUR i believe. The rain forest was great and the 3D movie was unique experience, less than... More
