A nice change from all the visiting all the art museums in Barcelona is the science museum. The best exhibit is the "flooded Forrest" where you get to walk around and under the trees and water and see lots of live animals and birds. The signs are all in Spanish and English, and the staff are bi-lingual if you need... More

We spent almost all day wandering around & learning so much! This is such a great attraction, not only for kids & families, but for couples, tourists, too. So much to see and it's quite a stylish place actually! Totally recommendable!

We spent a week in Barcelona and left to see this museum towards the end of our trip, mainly because the first days were filled with visits to "famous" landmarks and places. Little did we know that the best surprise was about to come!! First of all the ticket is very cheap compared to everything else we visited!! And if... More

Firstly it took ages to find from the Metro is was one of the few places that did not have any walking signs for tourists. We followed the traffic signs which took us on a roundabout route but we got there in the end. Inside there is a huge amount of wasted space, it is set on 5 levels below... More

An interactive science museum/display centre. The most fascinating display may be the Flooded Forest section, with underwater, ground level and aerial displays. The floor plan can be confusing so study the map you get when buying your tickets. The walk up to the building from public transit is a hike.

For only 4 euros myself and 13 year old had 3 hours of exploring. Much better value and much better fish than the acquarium bit noisey with groups of children but great to see them there having fun and learning

Everything about this place is striking, from the mountain-top views of Barcelona to the multi-story indoor botanical garden. We visited the Sapiens expo that includes an interesting section on Ferran Adria's innovation work in the culinary arts.

Visited here on the recent public holiday with my partner, it seemed a great place to visit, particularly for families as there are lots of activities for children. Can get busy and crowded, though it wasn't too bad when we visited. La Caixa bank card holders get in free with your bank card! :)
