Interactive Science Museum very fun for all ages. The most beautiful exhibition is the Flooded Forest (who recreates an Amazonian ecosystem) and the planetarium.

I think It is. Most of experiments are Easy to understand even without explanations. About Two Years old boy, it's difficult to answer, It depends from the boy, but I think he should be involved in interattive experiments

You can book it directly for the entrance. However if you want to do one of the group activities you need to book it in advance

Where to stay - Conference at Cosmocaixa (3 Replies)
I will be attending at conference at Cosmocaixa in mid-May. Of course, I will also want to see the sights of Barcelona. Will I be better to stay near the conference and travel to central areas, or vice versa? How long will it take to travel by public transit?

Response fromnyplaymaker|
the train going there (part of the FGC system) is very quick from the center. You can stay near stations at Pl Catalunya, Eixample or Gràcia and it is less than 10 minutes travel. the hotel situation in the immediate area of the venue is not great and you will feel isolated if you attempt to stay closer. Frankly, it's pointless. Trains run with similar frequency to the metro, and you can use the same T-10 card for the fgc and the metro.

A question about the hop on hop off bus (3 Replies)
I thought about buying a ticket for one day to get on the hop on- hop off bus. In that day, i would like to visit three main attractions in Barcelona- First Parc Guell, then go to the CosmoCaixa museum and then from there go to the Camp Nou. I'm arriving at Barcelona on January the 8th morning time, and living on January the 14th morning time. On January the 9th im going to the game. My question is- can i go to those three sites on the same day? Because i want to dedicate enough time to...More

Yes, you can use the Ho Ho bus to visit those 3 attractions in 1 day. You'll have enough time to see them all if you don't stop anywhere else. Another option would be to simply take a taxi or use the metro/bus. If you tell us where you are starting your trip (ie hotel or cross-streets), we can help you plan your transportation. Since you have several days in town, also consider seeing Cosmo Caixa and Park Guell on different days as they are not well-connected by public transportation. ...More
