Mainly For Kids
Mar 2020
This is very much aimed at providing children with an insight into various technologies through the years. lots of inter active things for the kids to play with and watch results. Fairly basic stuff if an adult. Obviously being in Spain almost all the notices are in Spanish but there are limited notices in English. the place was swarming with children of all ages from about 3/4 years up to mid teenagers. Most of the younger ones were enjoying playing with the various displays.

Excellent to go with kids

Perfect to go with kids. My 8 and 6 years old were enjoying a lot with all interactive things. Entertainment and education at the same time. And practically for free.

Great, especially for kids. And it’s for free!

Very modern space with lots of science-related activities for children. But also for adults some are very interesting. The fact that it is for free makes this place a must-visit if you happen to be in or close to Alcobendas.

Can't believe it's free!
Mar 2019 • Couples
An interactive experience for people of all ages who are interested in science and technology.

You can even download an app which takes you to different locations in the museum, like a scavenger hunt. Having done this, I would have liked the museum to provide some small gift for getting to the end, like a magnet or bookmark, a trinket to reward the time you put into it, especially for children.

Not only can you learn a lot inside, but there is also a huge outdoor area where you can have a picnic and enjoy the weather.

And it's free! Book your tickets in advance online and enjoy!

Good all round
Jul 2018 • Family
I have taken my family as a result of a great school trip. There is so much to explore, as previous accounts explain. So many hands on activities - some with engish explanations too. We managed to go to the Polarias planetarium show for 5-8 yr olds, which was cool and then there was an open question session where the lady showed us the night sky. Bonus for 3 euros. A lot to do! Incredible that it was practically empty. With my class we did two workshops which were also high standard - id really encourage you to take your kids with other kids so they can explore and take full advantage of the knowledge and experience. Our little five year old was too afriad to go alone on the nanoplanetary experience.

Free access, very interesting and a must visit
Mar 2018
A must visit place ... plenty of things to do with science experiments

Entry fee - free for museum(though you have to take tickets) ; 3€ for planetarium

Have three floor - ground floor mostly old bike cars movie making and health care equipment’s

First floor is best part - have plenty of interesting things (explaining science concepts), any kid would love this place

Top floor have planetarium

There is a cafeteria as well on ground floor

Overall, a must visit place and ideal for a half day trip

Great museum
Nov 2016 • Family
Excellent museum. On the ground floor the permanent exhibition is ok with information in Spanish and slightly less English, but it's great for highlighting to children how things have changed. The present temporary exhibition 2100 great combining both information and interactive exhibits and both are in Spanish and English.

Upstairs is the science museum proper and contains lots and lots of interactive exhibits for the children and adults to play with. All complete with full translations in Spanish and English.

Absolutely outstanding museum, to top of off general admission is free you just py €3 extra for various workshops (not tried).

The one downside is that there is no cafe, although it looks like they are working on this.

Fabulous for kids - I don't understand why it's not in the guidebooks
Apr 2016 • Family
This place is fantastic. I don't understand why it doesn't appear in Madrid guidebooks - a Spanish friend of ours with kids told us about this place. It is on the outskirts of Madrid - underground station nearby and free parking available.

Free to get in, and workshops and planetarium only cost 3 euros (but obviously you don't have to do these). I would disagree with a previous review saying you need to speak Spanish to understand - signs available in English and Spanish and lots of the things ie hands on science for kids don't need a sign to explain it - you can easily explain the science behind it to your kids. My daughter was the only one at the science workshop so the explainer/ teacher did the session in English and she loved it (she's 5).

Bring a packed lunch as there's not much in the way of food nearby, that was obvious to me. It became really quiet in the afternoon after the school groups had gone - so would recommend going in the afternoon rather than the morning if you want a quiet time.

Highly recommended. Thank you.

A really nice museum and a free entrance - need to know Spanish though
Aug 2015
It's a very nice science museum, but the thing is that with science - the most interesting is the explanations behind the phenomena, and here, for explanations you need to know Spanish. however, the entrance is for free, so worth visiting anyway.
