we had 3 days in barcelona, we decided to go to this science museum because we have been to the science museum in Denmark and we love it. This one on the other hand was not fun at all, I kinda regret spending time there. It only cost us 4 euros so really cheap! If you have too much time... More

Fantastic effort by Caixa bank foundation and easily one of the best interactive children's science museums in the world with science tools, special effects, aan Amazonian rainforest and a building that is unique amongst children's museums in the world. To make it even better it's free for children and a minimal charge for adults - amazing. Good day or half... More

We were there with our 3 childrens. Is very easy to get there with metro and bus until the front door. The entrance fee is very cheap (4 euro to adult and kids are free). The kids enjoyed it so much. There is a lot to do and to see. The whole place is interactive and interesting for kids -... More

This place was fantastic! So many interactive exhibits. The flooded forest is very cool too. We spent half a day here. We did go on a Spanish Bank Holiday though so obviously the place was packed full of children - not ideal for us as a young(ish) couple!

At 4 euros per adult, this has to be the best value indoor activity in Barcelona, and if you have kids you can spend several hours. The amazon exhibition is wonderful and so is the hands-on science part, though if you like us have done many hands-on science museums, the hands-on activities tend to be a bit the same everywhere...

If you come to BCN with children, it is MANDATORY. If without children, and you are curious about the world you live in, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
