Pretty good science museum to spend a few hours in when the kids have had enough of the art and architecture. Everything was very clean and in good repair. Some interesting and engaging exhibits. English language narration and explainers are ubiquitous, in addition to Spanish and Catalan. Nice little restaurant as well. Nothing fancy, but you can get a meal... More

Inexpensive family place to visit with your little ones. Plenty to do and at least 3/4 hours to keep them busy. Same experience in San Francisco will cost you USD. 60.-- pp meanwhile here it will be less than Eur 4.--pp Located uptown it gives you plenty of lovelly place to visit from.

Wonderful science museum where I was lucky enough to see a great dinosaur exhibition in 2009. Well worth a visit depending on what exhibits they have, and close enough to Tibidabo to make a day of it. Museum, lunch and then take in the views of the city from atop Tibidabo mountain.

It was a nice experience but don't expect too much though because some of them were familiar from back in physics classes. The walk into the rain forest was interesting! We were able to observe and hear animals from tropic regions (some of which were even freely-roaming), different species, the beautiful landscape and we enjoyed the climate in the rain... More

Lots of things for children and adults to do. In school term time can be very busy in morning with school parties of all ages. Afternoons much quieter and easier to try things. Children are free and adults not expensive.accessible by Metro if prepared to walk up hill, but can get bus

This is the perfect example of how the banks can offer back to the public attractions of top level without charging for an entrance fee. In London terms this is 3 museums in one: Science, Natural History and Planetarium. We watched a 3D movie about the Universe with audio in English. We enjoyed a lot the walk in the flooded... More

We found this very difficult to find and the queue getting into the place a nightmare, that was once you actually found where to pay, however it was very interesting. Very cheap entertainment, although if you want to get the most from it then extras have to be paid to join in on the specials which take place around the... More
