A fantastic Natural History Museum. It takes you on a journey from the big bang to the formation of the earth as we know it. It is very interactive and has cool touch screens that are multi-lingual. There are even screens that you slide over exhibits to give more detailed information. There are cases of stuffed animals, birds and fish and they are set out to explain different types of animal behaviour. Worth at least two visits - which is what your tickets allows you to do!

The permanent exhibitions are stunning. The exhibitions are professional, using the latest technology. The fossil and mineral displays are among the most impressive I've seen. The video interviews scattered throughout are very informative. Overall, really good. Too bad its so far away, but considering the low price, adding the bit for the metro is reasonable.

El Museu Blau is well worth a visit. We spent several hours working our way through the extensive exhibitions. It is informative, using many different media and it's interactive. Importantly, the ticket allows you to leave the museum to buy refreshments and then return, since the museum does not have a restaurant or a cafe.
