Loud, busy, and a long walk from metro station. It's a great venue for kids but not something that adults will particularly enjoy. Although there are some wonderful exhibits that adults could find interesting they were set up for kids and were poorly described in places. Food in the restaurant was appalling and the tables were left dirty after school... More

I was in the right area as had been visiting Torre Bellesguard and with entry to that attraction I got free entry to this one so I thought why not. However there was not an English map and I found it hard to find my way around, and much of the exhibits were not translated into English, so I didn't... More

This was my second visit to CosmoCaixa and again I was surprised by all the cool things in there. As a heartless engineer, I never come up with any other attractions than museums of science, technology, etc. Because of that, I have visited quite many of them. I have seen them for example in Australia, Finland, Thailand and Germany, and... More

Though it seems a bit out of town nothing in Barcelona really is that far. This science museum is at the base of Tibidabo so if you time the journey right it is possible to get to Av. de Tibidabo on the L7 (from Pl Catalanya) then a bus and the funicular up to look around and then back to... More

Fantastic science museum, great for those under 10. There are so many activities, children quickly switch one to another; there is never a long wait, despite the high traffic. Remember to buy tickets to the planetarium from the ticket booth when you enter! It’s a great show, audio-guides in different languages are included in the price, but a long trek... More

Only €4 which was a good deal. Everything in Spanish, Catalan, and English. Some cool hands-on displays. Not amazing but very good.
