Definitely the best museum I have ever visited. I attended with my boyfriend (both age 21) and was amazed by the amount of things there were to do. We could have easily stayed there for over 3 hours but didn't have much time. If you go we recommend you stay for awhile and don't rush it as there's not only... More

Took the family to this place on a Thur in July. Admissions for adults is 4 Euros and children up to 16 y.o. get in for free. What a great idea to encourage children to come. There were some very large groups of kids with one or two adults who had come to visit, I am sure the free admissions... More

It's an average science museum. The wet forest is outsanding, also there are lots of stuff to play with to learn the basics (ie. gravity, acceleration, waves, colors, etc.). Recommended for children!

It is a bit far away from the regular tourist path, but especially if you are with children, be sure to visit this place. It is a modern building giving answers to many questions about the science , but also nature, ecology and life developing on earth. Do not be afraid, it's so fun with all the interactive experiments that... More

Cosmocaixa is the new version of the old museum of science in Barcelona.You can do lots of different physics experiments, that will help you in understanding the basics physics laws. You will find a tropical forest in it, with simulation of the tropical weather.do not forget to book for the planetarium. Nice place to go with kids.

An extraordinary interactive museum for all ages. New activities every season, and one full day will be barely enough to complete your tour.

I loved the Forest underwater. The experiments are good, but many need to be renewed. For the price you pay, you get a good experience!

Maybe it is an unknown place for the tourists, but I recommend you going there. It is 2 minutes away from MNAC, and almost all the expositions are free or only cost 4€.¡

You might think this science museum is too far out off the beaten path in Barcelona but seriously, please go! It's fabulous and so fun for all ages. We took our 12 and 15 year old sons and hours melted by. We didn't even get off the bottom level before it closed at 8 pm. It's a taxi ride and... More
