A great and cheap attraction for kids and grown-ups alike. I really liked the jungle green-house. The temporary expo on the Mediterranean was super. There's a quite decent cafeteria there, but if the weather's nice, there's a very nice green area outside the museum, great for picnicking.

I liked the variety of exhibitions and it's possible for non-spanish speakers (and non catalan :) ) to enjoy everything there! One of the best places to visit in Bcn. I lived there for 6 months and visited twice, wasn't disappointed.

I won't lie, I've been planning to visit this place since I decided to visit Barcelona. And boy, my guts were right! This museum is wonderful. It's one of those things I would have loved to visit as a kid but I never had the chance to. That's what happened for 5 hours, after I entered this place: I became... More

This is a terrific science museum/exhibit and kids love it. I guess younger kids will like it the best, ours is 5 and he adored it. It has a great sunken rainforest with huge/medium/small fish, huge anacondas, birds and so on. Plus some dinosaur exhibits and loads more.. We didn't have time to go around all of it. It also...

So much to do and see here, with a big highlight being the indoor rainforest which was simply stunning. My nephews (2 and 5) loved every minute as it was almost like a huge play centre for them! Extremely well-done science museum.

The CosmoCaixa was out of the way - took a taxi there and a long walk to the metro for the trip back in to central Barcelona - but well worth the trip. Our children (6,6,3 years old) were so engaged! We expected to spend maybe 2 hours there and it turned into a whole day, including chasing the pigeons... More

very interactive and interesting. You must go early to get a place for Toca Toca and also visit the 3D planetarium. Entry is only 4 euro, and then 4 euro for each of the specials. Well worth it
