This museum is one of the cheapest ways to spend a day in Barcelona (€4 per adult, children under 16 free) and it's absolutely brilliant. There are lots of interactive exhibits with signs in English (as well as Spanish / Catalan), a fantastic swamp with a glass wall so you can see the fish swimming under the water, a good... More

Wonderful place to come both for the kids and adults; the entrance is very affordable; there are plenty options for the activities and for kids to ask the parents what they do actually remember from the school lessons. Do not miss the planetarium

Was not expecting to have such a great time! Suitable for children and adults alike. Many interesting (and a few less interesting) experiments for everyone to try out - great fun and also educational. Worth more than the ticket price, a must for anyone who loves exploring the world around them.

i have been to science museums in many places, London, Glasgow, Paris, Munich and so on. This is definitely the best all round, accessible and fun one yet. The place is very modern and welcoming and has Spanish, Catalan and English signs on everything. There's lots of interactivity, a great layout and an amazing Amazon rainforest aquarium that'll put many... More

We came here after visiting Tibidabo. I recommend combining these 2 attractions as they are quite close to each other. And I would suggest doing them in this order, so any walking done is downhill... It is truly amazing value for money for such a small entrance fee and the amount of fun to be had. There is so much... More

First of all - easy to get to on Line 7 of the underground system - you are in Zone 1 the whole way, so just need a zone 1 ticket (the ticket machines are slightly confusing if you are used to just popping on the other metro lines) - and then a fairly short (although uphill) walk. The museum... More

When we first went in, I was concerned, since it's location is out of the city a bit, and it seems a little too quiet when you enter. There also seems to be very little there on the entrance floor, however, you follow a timeline all the way down to the bottom floor (which is several floors down) down a... More
