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

great value for money, if a bit of a mission to get to. the entire ground floor kept my toddler entertained for almost 2 hours - loads of buttons to press, animals to see and topics to discuss.

Absolutely must see! All the theories are interactively presented, if only schools were like that. The Amazonia jungle is incredible!
