What to do- 4 days Barcelona with kids (1 & 3 yrs old)!

We are staying in Barcelona Thurs- Sunday, travelling with our kids who are 1 and 3! We like to walk around and explore the city, staying around Placa de Catalunya. There are many must see places so I’m a bit confused. Looking for recommendations on what to do/see/visit and where to eat with kids ! thank you :)

Nearly 50,000 posts on the forum and for the first time someone asks about kids!

Seriously, though, simply type the word "kids" into the forum search box and you should find loads to research. Have a read of some of the more relevant looking ones and then if you have further questions we should be able to answer them.

Your kids are very small so not all activities for kids would "work" well, but I would suggest Parc Güell so you actually visit something that is unique to Barcelona. Take a taxi there, not expensive and a lot more convenient. Pre-book online

Have a look at the cathedral cloisters, with the geese. This is in the medieval cathedral in the Old Town, not Sagrada Familia (which is not a cathedral)

The Aquarium is very expensive for the time you spend there but you might enjoy walkingb round the Maremagnum area, looking at the boats etc

maybe the maritime Museum?

Where to eat with kids: anywhere that serves food (but don't expect a kids menu, you'll have to choose something from the ordinary menu)

Cosmocaixa is the science museum, uptown. Enjoyed by small kids, but if you only have 4 days I wouldn't say it's a must

https://www.kidsinbarcelona.com/ will give you some ideas, but bear in mind that it is aimed mainly at families living here, so a lot of the activities mentioned will probably be in Catalan, the language of schooling (even if it doesn't say so specifically)
