    Small nice Museum where children can try out much. Unfortunately is almost everything except 2 or 3 attempts on English only in Spanish explained. The mirror maze is funny.

    We often go with the children. The building has a special charm, the exhibitions are very comprehensive and interesting and fun as well as educational workshops. My children don't want to go there, all their attention and enjoy giving glory. It is also well-connected. Are you cannot ask more!

    This located in a fabulous building, look at the inside details that do honor to the flag they represent. In the event that you want to visit the Planetarium pre-booked put that on many occasions is the full capacity.

  • We visited the temporary computer science exhibition. Not very big museum but well adapted for the younger audience, many items to touch and try.
  • Fascinating building in rare pre-Columbian revival style, built for the Peruvian pavilion of the American-Iberian exposition. The museum itself is mediocre but has an interesting collection of cetean skeletons.
  • Quite good fun for an hour or so. Definitely worth a visit if you have kids.
  • unexpectedly the museum was closed. A little note on the front gate sait that it is closed untill the end of september.
  • Not the biggest science museum in the world and not got the money fit flashy exhibits, but it's still interesting and its heart is in the right place.

Where to stay in Seville

Seville's flat, grid-like city center makes it one of Spain's most walkable cities. While no part of the center is more than a 15-minute walk away, you might enjoy staying on one of the many picturesque cobblestone streets leading off from the famous Cathedral in Plaza España. Boutique hotels and historical apartment rentals intermix with the old quarter's tapa bars and Andalusian storefronts. Nearby, Barrio Santa Cruz is a bit quieter than the main plaza but still boasts the city's sought-after old-world charm. Across the river is the Triana neighborhood, where a lack of heavy tourism has preserved the strong local scene in this mainly residential area full of traditional restaurants and corner bars.
