From 7,60 €

An unforgettable journey through science


CosmoCaixa is the science museum in Barcelona run by "la Caixa" Community Projects, and is designed to stimulate people's knowledge and opinion of science through exhibitions and a wide variety of activities.


Science Museum CosmoCaixa Barcelona offers its visitors a whole host of activities and permanent and temporary exhibitions to give anyone who is interested a greater insight into the world of science.

The museum’s most distinctive attractions include the new permanent exhibition “The Universe Gallery” where visitors can learn about the cosmos and its evolution from the big bang to the present day. An interactive experience beginning with the creation of the cosmos and going on to explore the evolution of the species and the innermost workings of the human brain.
The "Flooded Forest” recreates the ecosystem of the Amazon inside a glass house covering an area of 1,000 m2, which is home to piranhas, crocodiles and other animal and plant species typical of the area, and the “Geological Wall” consists of seven vast sections of genuine rock that allow us to interpret the world’s geology. The “Juan Carlos I Antarctic Base”, its original laboratory and photographs from National Geographic.  The “Math Lab” is a space that is completely dedicated to mathematics. The weather station will give you a real insight into meteorology.  

The museum building is just as fascinating as its contents. Science Museum CosmoCaixa  is a beautiful example of modernista architecture, designed and built between 1904 and 1909 by Josep Domènech i Estapà. The modern extension carried out in 2004 highlighted the value of the century-old building while placing it in a new context.
