Cosmocaixa Barcelona, Barcelona Reviews - Write a Review
If you're interested in science, this is a must visit place if you come to Barcelona. There is always at least one temporary display and a permanent one, they also make really interesting talks about science related stuff every now and then tho they're usually either in Spanish or in Catalan. The museum itself has translations to Spanish, Catalan, English and French.
A great place to take the kids. Adults will also love it. 2 to 3 hours going through it, with just the permanent exhibition.
Amazing museum. Adapted for kids but really good for adults. Hands on area. Microenvironment area (dampened forest walk is amazing).
Amazing science museum, great for kids and adults. The piece of Amazon forest is magic. Despite it brings concerns about the origin of the plants and animals, I have to recognise that it gives the possibility to many people to discover the Amazon without traveling
Wonderful! We spent 3 hours here and didn't see everything as we had to rush off. Follow the thread of life's history through three floors including a spectacular glass spiral entrance and excellent exhibits. Our favourites were the language & neuroscience discovery centre and the multi-level submerged rainforest with carnivorous fish, colourful birds and a rather pudgy capybara! Worth noting that, like many attractions in this part of the world, it's not open on a Monday. So glad we tried again though, we had a blast!
