  • Not you can give score maximum, because was complete the session of the planetary and us has missed that by know. The rest is super good for children. Very recommendable. It must be pre-booked on the plaza for activities that are all on weekends. That if, spent a cold stripping. So I imagine that spring and summer will be very well :) Entry discount you have to visit the Museum of navigation that is in another site. The hotel had no idea of this offer, but on the web if it appears. So it seems a good plan. At the end of the tour there is a shop and a few tables to rest. In addition, the location is perfect if you want to then take a stroll through the parque Maria Luisa.

  • Both the museum itself, as the "Planetarium"; lack of attractiveness, is obsolete and lack originality, they are in the I want to but I don't know or I don't feel like... Both activities are uncomfortable seeing, boring by definition. each of the exhibitors are sprinkled with a sober, cold building and large posts rather to occupy space. The "Planetarium" is a tiny bubble inflated, where as you enter between the five first you don't see nothing. the animations are of very poor quality and with a mise en scène by scraping mediocrity. It is a scam, a joke, indecent and pathetic.

  • For 3 euros we agreed, we saw a series of posts relating to hearing stands. We also saw that there was increased in some insects as the mantis models. There was also a room devoted to cetaceans.
