It is a favorite for all children and with a super reduced price.
CosmoCaixa is the name given to the Barcelona Science Museum. It was inaugurated in 1981, and has been remodeled on several occasions; it is currently a modern and large center of scientific dissemination for all audiences. The original building, dating back to 1904, was built in a modernist style by the architect Josep Domènech i Estapà.
Children love the museum because they can see, touch, and learn. You get to immerse yourself in science and in the evolution of homo sapiens, discover the origins of the universe in the Planetarium and explore the museum’s star attraction for young visitors, the FLOODED FOREST, with 1,000 m2 of Tropical Amazon Rainforest providing a habitat for a variety of animal species such as alligators, boas, fish, turtles, tarantulas, glass ant farms, birds, and many more.
The museum is very spacious, and there are seldom lines to get in or crowds inside. Children under 16 and many groups go free. Adult admission is 6 euros.
Open every day of the week from 10 am to 6 pm. The easiest and most comfortable way to get there is by taxi. By public transport, you can take buses H2, H4, V17, V15, V19, V13, 196, and 123. By FGC (Catalan Government Railway), you can take Line L7, stopping at Av. Tibidabo.
