  • Ideal for an entertaining day learning things, family. I advise to book activities in advance, since they tend to fill up, and thus choose the time that suits you. Kids love to go. We ate in the restaurant office that inside, and all very good and clean.

  • It's really very interesting for the whole family. (Free for children) ridiculous admission of the hit we took a session at the planetarium for 4 euros more and even if it is advised for + 12 the little 6 year old feasted (3D and translation) the top is the mangrove you can stay hours ahead so it's beautiful. Many easily accessible interactive workshops. Not really a great success.

  • If you're interested in science, this is a must visit place if you come to Barcelona. There is always at least one temporary display and a permanent one, they also make really interesting talks about science related stuff every now and then tho they're usually either in Spanish or in Catalan. The museum itself has translations to Spanish, Catalan, English and French.
  • Amazing replica of the Amazon forest. It has areas of science with experiences and good information. On the other hand it also has parts about nature. It's the Sunday afternoon perfect plan specially to kids.
  • Amazing science museum, great for kids and adults. The piece of Amazon forest is magic. Despite it brings concerns about the origin of the plants and animals, I have to recognise that it gives the possibility to many people to discover the Amazon without traveling
  • WHAT?! it is amazing! Best museum in Barcelona. It took three hours to see just one floor. And I need to go back because is lots to discover. Wonderful ! A must!!!
  • Wonderful! We spent 3 hours here and didn't see everything as we had to rush off. Follow the thread of life's history through three floors including a spectacular glass spiral entrance and excellent exhibits. Our favourites were the language & neuroscience discovery centre and the multi-level submerged rainforest with carnivorous fish, colourful birds and a rather pudgy capybara! Worth noting that, like many attractions in this part of the world, it's not open on a Monday. So glad we tried again though, we had a blast!

Where to stay in Barcelona

Because the city's metro system makes traveling from area to area relatively painless, you have more flexibility in choosing a place to stay. Barceloneta, the neighborhood surrounding the city beach is somewhat removed from the city center, making its hotels popular with families. Only a 15-minute walk from the center, Barceloneta has a more laid-back beach atmosphere but still offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Farther away from the beach and closer to the city center, El Born is a charming neighborhood well-known for its restaurants and lively bar scene. Eixample is also popular as it is more central and home to some of the city's best shopping and tourist sites, including La Sagrada Familia. For a more traditional experience, consider staying in the Gothic Quarter, the heart of Old Barcelona. This picturesque neighborhood boasts a tight network of historical architecture with boutique hotels and traditional restaurants.
