  • Visit it at family with my parents and my 5 year old son. One pass! The only thing that would have to report at the time of purchase entries of animals discovered visits are purchased tickets to part... My son took a huge disappointment... But will be an excuse to go back! Because really we love.

  • 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!
