  • A city that is proud of its tourist attraction should have a varied and quality offer. Why it is so important to BCN has a Museum of these characteristics: large, careful, rigorous, innovative, designed for children and adults. And the price is private but very affordable.

  • I didn't expect so much for not being a place sooo commented, but I thought it was fantastic. If you had children and was on holiday in barcelona take them there. adults also should go; the structure is wonderful, and the part of the flooded forest is unmissable.

  • We were a Friday afternoon to do something different with some friends. We had already gone small with the College, but one does not remember everything. The entrance is cheap, and there you have everything. Animals, instruments, inventions,... Is a great site to enrich you slightly more than ever is of more.

  • One of the best science museums I've ever been. Bug enough to explain tons of science concepts, and with friendly staff willing to help and explain each of them. The tropical forest inside is amazing.
  • A good, little afternoon visit. Entry is free if you're a la Caxia customer and very inexpensive if you're not. Kids will really enjoy this place, many hands-on exhibits. The indoor rainforest was fantastic.
  • Excellent museum plenty for our young son to interact with. The rainforest aquarium is amazing. The buffet restaurant is also one of the best offerings I have experienced at a museum. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Great science museum. There's interactive science displays, information on early man, rain forest which you can walk through etc. You do however play for entry and then if you want to watch a show at the planetarium it costs extra. Watched a 3D show on space at the planetarium which was good. Also touch touch was good. Also caters for English language speakers through the museum and extras, which was great.
  • Excellent museum. The entrance costs only 4 euro. Very large exposition, but some place you can visit only for extra money. We spent there 3 hours and it was very interesting.
