“Amazing science museum”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

Despite being owned by a bank, this science museum is sincere and very well done. The rainforest is particularly good, better then the aquarium in Barcelona.

“Children would love it. Adults would say 'ok, cute'”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

Yes, the artificial rainforest is impressive but I expected a thrill and didn't find any. The 3D 360 degrees movie was interesting and overall there are indeed cute hands on displays at the exhibition, but I would categorize this attraction as mostly for childern or all family.
To save you waiting in line you are advised to purchase you ticket online (possible up to 1 day prior to arrival).

“Fantastic attraction (with great restaurant)”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

One of the best attractions we have been to. A wonderful building, with a basement packed full of interactive and educational exhibits to keep children and adults amused for hours, not to mention a truly impressive recreation of a slice of rainforest. Interpretation panels are in English, Catalan and Spanish. An unexpected bonus was the restaurant, tucked away behind the cafe, where we had an excellent and good value all-you-can eat buffet, and where they also do a generous three-course meal for kids.

“Best science museam ever!”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

I haven't been to many science museums, but this one really is incredible. Interesting for adults and kids alike, there is also plenty of interactive hands on exhibits that makes things fun. A bit out of town, but definitely recommend the treck, as the views of the city from up there are nice as well. Cheap too!

“Fantastic option for the kids”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

This is one of the most facinating science museums we have visited as a family, there is a plethora of hands-on fun, and the indoor amazon rainforest is very special. Recommend at least three hours to take it all in.
