While I was working, my husband and 8 year old daughter were exploring the Cosmo Caixa, which according to them is an amazing science museum. They took tons of great pictures of everything from an actual rain forest to a cute octopus to some monkey game that my daughter played a dozen times. They spent the entire day there and... More

Although a bit distant from city center, when I got there I realised that the location well served Cosmo Caixa purpose. I have to admit that I loved the views, which made the experience relaxing and helpful allowing me to can disconnect once in a while. The Museum itself is spacious, well distributed, coherent, interactive, and with good explanations about... More

We had such a great time here! The price was only 4 Euro for adults and free for my 9 year old. We spent half the day running around, trying to different exhibits and reading all about Science. We also viewed the Flooded River and got to experience the "Rain Forest". This is a must for a visit to Barcelona.

Cheap entry, lots of things to see and do inside... We spent atleast 4 hours there looking around and playing with all the gadgets... Would have been perfect for a school trip

The museum was good, but we went there during a field trip of maybe all of Barcelona's schools that day, so it was very noisy, so try to avoid this by going in the afternoon. It was very big and you can easily get lost in there, i think a tour guide will be best especially when you can not... More

Compared to similar activities in Paris and Mechelen, this one is inferior. Don't go with your kid over week days, cos lots of parts are closed due to organized school groups. My impression is that the official website is not informative. Great experience is flooded forest (so, 3 points). Otherwise, not much to se... My kid and myself, we can't... More

If you like science museum this one you must visit. Also there is very nice Rainforest section with live animals, and on top floor some nice fossils. I would recommend to visit if you are in Barcelona for more than few days.

Great price/quality ratio. For 4 euros you have access to big, entertaining museum. If you spend more than week in Barcelona, this is a must-see.
