We've just been on our 2nd visit with our kids and I am already looking forward to my next visit. Simply the best museum / science / art experience you can have in Barcelona and at an absolute bargain price. It cost just 4 euro's for adults and is free for kids and you can comfortably spend 3 - 4... More

Beware - plenty of walking in order to see the whole thing.. can take anything from 1-2 hours to a full afternoon depending on whether you're with kids (who rush through just to see the 'cool stuff') or if you're adults meandering slowly through...

I have been to many science museums and I have to say that this has to be one of the best. I have been here several times with my son since he was about 2 with the last visit being last week (July 2016). It has something for all ages and is very interactive with lots of buttons to press.... More

Excellent science exhibits and a beautiful Amazonian rainforest habitat. Great for kids and adults alike - also really good value (€4 each when I visited)! Book the tickets online before visiting if you can, as the queues can be long.

It is a big place, a bit far from the city center but it is nice to go there. And then from there you can visit Tibidabo . The hill on top of Barcelona. 100% Recomended

I must say that I was completely caught by surprise concerning this attraction. I thought it was a boring building only worth to look outside but this was an enormous complex with many things to be seen. If one likes museums of biology history, it has many sites to see. But as for me, I prefer living things. The bottom... More

Been at this place with my family. Children and adults alike will surely enjoy this visit. the entrance ticket is also inexpensive and appropriate. You need at least four to five hours to cover the whole museum.

We were originally doing Barcelona in 1 day, and although we came across this museum, and it was in our top 10, the location made it problematic to include. However, we had a spare couple of hours travelling from Girona to an evening flight in El Prat, and this fitted in nicely. Every display is in English also, but try... More

this is an interactive museum that is great for kids and families. there are a lot of additional events as well that you need to register, so come early and register for them as they are great fun, such as touching animals or insects, a movie experience, etc
