  • Very nice place... optimized for Spanish children in school. Admission is cheap and there are some interesting things (Amazon rainforest, pendulum of Foucault,...) but most of the proposed experiments lack details and explanations. Suddenly, the children touch turns without really understanding the issues. Proposed activities are certainly relevant, but difficult access for non school. In short, it is not so "tourist" or essential than that.

  • At 4 euros per adult, this has to be the best value indoor activity in Barcelona, and if you have kids you can spend several hours. The amazon exhibition is wonderful and so is the hands-on science pa...  more »
  • If you come to BCN with children, it is MANDATORY. If without children, and you are curious about the world you live in, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

  • 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.
