  • Very nice place for kids and also adults. Looks like a science fair with an indoor jungle. Really educational and entertaining. Nice collection of Amazon fishes and some reptiles. There are also some temporary exhibitions and activities for the kids that you need to enroll previously. Car parking is close by (in the other side of the street) and also you could park in the streets surrounding it. Use the parking meter or the municipality app for paying.
  • Simply amazing! The best science museum I ever visited. The rainforest ecosystem recreated indoor its awe inspiring. The different experiences and experiments are not just very interesting for kids of all ages, they are incredibly educational. I would give 10 stars if was possible to do it.
  • The best science museum i have ever visited. A combination of science, history, geography, nature and art with excellent interactive samples shown, all logically connected together. Everything is in a very good condition. It was interesting to check and touch, press buttons, see how physical laws work. The most interesting thing i was really impressed by was the nature part with giant trees, which grow in water, with big and small fish swimming together below, with birds flying between the branches of the trees above, with interesting animals walking on the ground around, with a large termite mound under the ground you may walk by and peep how they live. Kids also liked interactive part when they could play with robots/computer making some tasks. It's necessary to come there from the morning as 4 hours isn't enough to check all. We will definitely come again! Additional thanks to the museum staff for giving free tickets to Ukrainian refugees. Your attention and attitude supports us in this not easy time. Pray for Ukraine!
  • I was so fascinated and intrigued by the many displays. Almost all of the exhibits were functional and clearly explained in English as well. Keep at least 3 hours aside if you are even a little bit interested in science. It is as interesting for Adults as for kids.
  • One of the best museum in Barcelona, and probably one of the best I did so far! The exhibitions are well prepared, you have explanations in 4 languages, some educators are walking through the installations to interact with you and explain some scientific principles. If you are a Caixa customer, the entrance is free, otherwise it is only 6 euros to enter. You will learn about the Big Bang and the creation of the planets, the gravity, the evolution, health and human body, nature... They even recreated a mangrove forest where birds, turtles and fishes are living. I will definitely come back. Congratulations to the team and thank you!
