Amazing, but too many children around

The place is quite nice and the natural area is amazing. But there was too much children running around and messing with the exhibitions.

One of the best science museums in the world (on par or better than ones in London, New York, San Franciso, or Boston) this site is a must-visit if you are looking for a couple of hours respite from touring. Incredible hands-on displays, a wonderful Amazonian rain-forest exhibit, and great interactive exhibitions - this museum has it all. It has... More

The spectacular science museum in Barcelona is an exceptional place where you can not only passively look at the exhibits, but be an explorer of technical, geological, physical and every other scientific aspect. The former asylum for the blind, built in the early 20th century is now greatly enlarged and beautifully renovated to host this amazing place where kids of... More

An incredibly well curated science museum. You have to keep couple of hours aside for this adventure. It is a drive away from the centre so keep that in mind. And a slight walk from the metro. And no, it is not only for the science geeks!

Our family of five (kids ages 7-11) loved the three or four hours that we spent at CosmoCaixa. We were blown away that kids are free and adults were only 4 euro each! The displays were all explained in perfect (not translated) English. Our only disappointment was that we didn't book any of the extra experiences (touch, bubble and other)... More

We chose to visit this museum for our kids, but we enjoyed it too. The entrance for children up to 16 years old is free, but to enter the Planitarium everyone pays 4 € / p.p. We saw the film " A Dream to Fly" it was magical. Check at the official museum website for the exact time and the... More

This is my favorite museum in town. Has a real rain forest inside with huge fish. Very cheap and lovely location though a little difficult to get too.
