We enjoyed this small museum but were a bit sad the slide was out of order. My daughter had great fun on the calorie exercise bike - you choose a pack of crisps on the display, then have to cycle enough to burn off the pack's calories within a time deadline, to earn that packet of crisps! Made a good respite from all the wonderful culture elsewhere in the city.

I greatly enjoyed my time in this museum. The entry price was 5€ for students (7€ regular) and perhaps a little high for a small museum, but it was worth it to me. I laughed out loud at some of the inventions like the florescent dog biscuits (so you don't step in doo at night) and the psychological dieting plate (with a mirror dividing it down the middle). There was a good range of inventions including those in the children's competition, planet-saving innovations, "as seen on TV" pieces, and flat-out jokes. The museum is small but I'd recommend it if you have an hour or two to kill and want to be entertained.

This museum certainly was different from other ones we had been to. There wasn't a lot in it, but what they did have was great. There wasn't as much as I expected for the 7 euro per person entry price though. I would reccomend it for one visit but wouldn't bother going back again.

We were expecting quite a lot after reading the museums website but were disappointed. The slide was out of order for 'annual maintenance'. Whilst there were a few quirky and interesting inventions on display, there was just not enough to keep you there, and we only spent about 45 minutes inside. Quite poor value for money - 19 Euro for a family of three.

This mueseum is a fun and irreverant look at scientific ideas, inventions and often their young createurs. It will take just over an hour to go around as it is really just a shop on two floors.
I liked the video in the Gents. Very silly but fun! All the exhibits are in Catalan, Spanish & English.
€7 Adults and €5 for children aged 4-12. Oh and it closes for lunch and reopens at 1600.
