This place is like a Planetarium but the shows are of excellent quality. I have never seen a 3D show. On the same day they had organized a live open air concert followed by a movie. It was a nice and memorable experience.

Simply great science museum, with plenty of hands-on 'experiments' for kids (and grown-ups). The flooded forest is cool and beautiful. We could not see & do everything in one afternoon.

Interesting place that offers plenty of activities for children and the exhibition is also interesting for adults. We recommend the rain forest aquarium, amazing!

I found this place absolutely amazing. My girlfriend also enjoyed it, but got bored much sooner than I did. I think it would be a great place to bring children, and the Cosmo Caixa also seems to focus on entertaining children.

CosmoCaixa offers you a great experience while introducing you to the basics of spices evolution, physics, botany, etc. It is an excellent place to go with children. The younger will enjoy specially the rainforest setting with exotical plants and animals. One of the most amazing activities is the Planetarium where different shows let you learn a lot about stars, galaxies... More

Amazing location and extraordinary architecture of the museum building. Nice examples of variety of physics rules and natures. Yet, content wise, not much different than similar museums around the globe.

I cannot recommend this museum to anyone, especially if you are traveling without children: it is really boring and artificial. It is also not so easy to reach by metro. I would not even recommend it for the families with children unless you are a scientist or an actor and are able to explain everything to them in a funny... More

Prior to the trip more than 24 hrs I emailed you guys wanting the exact meeting point I did not receive a reply until 48 hrs therefore I missed the trip. A phone number of the facilitator would have been an extremely better option for those of us who have never been to the country. This completely stuffed up my... More

Located up hill (which created an enjoyable long walk from Plaza Catalunya for me). The Amazon rain forest exhibition is indeed something you do not see elsewhere. Overall, around 40% of the exhibition was more fact telling about geology and history of mankind (not exactly evolution), but I enjoyed the rest (more physical phenomena) enough to fill my day. Except... More

Lovely space, great hands on things to do and amazing rainforest! It was cool and peaceful, we went at 2 pm and there was no queue. I went to pay with my Barclays debit card and because there's some link between the two banks we got free entry (usually €4 for adults) and half price entry to the exhibitions (usually... More
