One of the most amazing this to see. Their rain forest is superb and unbelievable, their 'experiments' are truly amazing. We stayed there for 4 hours and had the most amazing experience. For 4 € it is well worth it, you will see some amazing things!

We have two kids under 10. So we decided to pick this museum as a place for us all to spend some time. This review is written from the perspective of someone visiting the museum on a Monday-Friday. There is a BIG difference if you go on the weekends, that is they open all the floors. Because we went on... More

As it came free with the Barcelona Card, we decided to visit CosmoCaixa. We got started off on the wrong foot as this place is EXTREMELY difficult to find. We exited the L7 train, and down through the tunnels there were tons of signs and murals screaming to go visit CosmoCaixa. But when we got onto the street, no signage... More

An absolutely amazing science museum, combining biology, chemistry, physics, geology and even some zoology and marine biology. The artificial Amazon Rain-forest alone itself is worth a look. At 4 Euros per adult, you simply cannot go wrong.
