The museum building looks old from the outside but is super modern on the inside. The exhibitions are hands on and our daughter had a blast here. We could have spent hours. If you have children, definitely worth the visit. It is a little bit out of the way but the bus stops right in front.

Great value , especially with our money off voucher from our city tour booklet. Normally €4 per adult and free for children. We saved €1 each! We only had about... More

This Science Museum is brand new - and is just stunning. From the moment you enter - and see very life-like wax models of Einstein and Darwin sitting at the pay desk- you know this is going to be good.! Highlights for us were the flooded tropical forest which demonstrates trees growing very tall - and big fish swimming very... More

This museum is a bit out of the main tourist way at the foot of Tibidabo hill. We went there with our five-year old (I guess a bit young for the sciency exhibitions), and had a great half-day there. The exhibits are well made, communicating basic principles of geology, biology, physics and mathematics in an entertaining way, geared towards children... More

Excellent educational experience even for the grown ups - be ready to spend a full day time. Walk down from pl. del funicular to av.tividabo to feel the sights and sounds of the neighborhood.

It is an very interesting place to go for knowledge. There is also a very little piece of Amazon Forest inside and it seens that we are there because of the climate that is very hot. The plants under the water seems to be very real. Try it!!!
