  • Building that arouses a good expectation. Inside, there is little that catches your attention. Disappointment in dinosaurs and experiences. Anyone who has ever visited another similar Museum will not regret not having been in this. You leave your pretty bad.

  • It is the second time that I come and I've checked that exposures are changing themed explaining well. The staff very friendly when you ask questions about some of the exhibition. I really liked the electricity workshop, explained everything very well and it is easy to understand by all, is also very interactive both for children and for adults. It is possible to leave the compound to eat and return inside with the same input. Restaurant prices are 11-€12 approximately by dish and € 3 drinks. There is also a cafe that sells sandwiches for €5. The products of the store are expensive for what they are. How to sew refusal of the Museum is that there is a lot of exposures that do not work properly or do not directly work, so I think that should review the State of things.

  • Given that I'm not crazy for science museums, but in this case, given the structure of "futuristic" I launched the adventure ...:-) Experience a little like this ... I went on a Sunday afternoon, there was the world ... and in a museum like this is a problem because the beauty lies in "try" installations and do the experiments. Mission failed Even many children who seemed to have fun. Gave me a bit the impression that a structure so large and beautiful it was underused. I didn't find things that we hit particularly, but maybe we were a little tired from the previous rounds. Perhaps if you are fans of the genre should get right away in the morning and spend as long as it goes ... Less than a couple of hours to see him just summarily almost impossible. But dipede from how you intend to visit. The part about dinosaurs very disappointing!

  • The place is definitely a modern day engineering marvel...and worth a visit if you are in Valencia. However, the museum might be disappointing for some if you are not a true science fan. There are a lot of help yourself activities, but most of them are informative. It takes approximately 1hour to visit the entire museum, if there are no special exhibitions on display. Thus, it may take you 2hours as well. The dolphin park, on the other hand would be something easier to connect to for most of the people. It takes approximately 4hours to visit and see the entire area. Thus, have a lot of spare time in your hands. Do check out the information brochure for the latest information.
  • What a gorgeous building and a testament to Valencia's architecture! And what a depressingly sad set of exhibits inside. It's almost as if they blew all of their budget on the architecture and had nothing left for the inside. My 9 year old was bored to tears. And quite frankly, so were my husband and I. We were really looking forward to visiting this museum, but were left deeply disappointed with sheer lack of imagination and ability to make science fun and engaging for all ages. If you want to read yourself into a siesta, go to the second floor.
  • Great display of the human chromosomes. It was so fascinating we didn't have time to see more. The building itself is a wonderful example of modern architecture. Good for children 8 and up. Plenty to keep adults involved. Very educational.
  • Great place to spend the day. Very educative, innovative and future-oriented. It was fulfilling to see how science can be taught is such a way. A lot of facts about nanotechnology, DNA, human body functions, physics, chemistry and Space related stuff. Definitely worth the visit! Prepare an entire day or two.
  • Mediocre science museum I'd say. The building looks great from the outside, much less fancy from the inside. The space is confusing. Many of the originally interactive displays don't work anymore. Some of the attractions have low capacity or huge queues. Poor navigation and organisation (didn't try audio guide ).
