The CosmoCaixa is a family day out when visiting Barcelona. There is a Planetarium (the show we saw was 2D although I believe there are 3D ones as well), there are lots of interesting interactive science displays and most impressive is the real life amazon rain forest complete fish, snakes, birds and trees. The restaurant and cafeteria are very good... More

This place is a bit off road for the conventional tourist. Most people you'll encounter here are Spanish. But still most information is provided in English to so you should definitely go. The place is a combination of a science center and a zoo, with some great rainforest exhibits. The place is very well maintained, lots of information and great... More

Great experience for all the family. A hands on science trip taking you through evolutionary history to modern day science. The Amazon rain forest is amazing with real fish which look almost prehistoric. At 4 euros entrance or free if you have a caixa bank card it is a must when visiting Barcelona.

Visited here while on holiday, well worth the 4 euro admission fee, only downside was we didn't allow enough time to really appreciate how good it was. We were unable to get to the planatarium because we had booked tickets to park gruell. Cafeteria in centre was very reasonably priced and offered a good variety of choices. Defo worth a... More

One rare place in Europe to visit with young and teenage kids if you want to show a general view of the history of the Earth and natural sciences. Free with the Barcelona Card. Similar to Csodák Palotája in Budapest, though not as up-to-date and comprehensive as the Palais de la découverte in Paris or Naturhistorisches Museum in Vienna. Nothing... More

A great museum with interesting scientific exhibits, many very hands-on fun experiments and an incredible indoor rainforest. Great!

What a nice surprise it was! From Passeig de Gracia, it is about a 7 euros taxi ride. A beautiful Modern Museum with lots to do for small and big children. A little rain forest stands tall in the middle of the venue with wild birds, fish and reptiles. If you want to get away from the craziness of Barcelonetta... More

We weren't expecting much for the €4 price tag but this place was brilliant. There are plenty of interactive exhibits and the rain forest was particularly interesting. Make sure when you initially arrive to review the additional activities and times, we missed out on a few exhibits which was disappointing.

This science museum is great for adults and children. There are lots of hands on experiments. The rain forest is fantastic, you can see below the water and above it when you walk through.
