CosmoCaixa, Museo de la Ciencia
This is not very known by tourists, but it is a smart way to make your children enjoy your holiday. This is an interactive science museum, where your children will learn scientific discoveries while enjoying it as it was a game. For example, they will have fun inside the reproduction of a real Amazon Rainforest, inclusive of animals, a sultry heat, and tropical rain. Also in the Planetarium, they will learn about planets and stars while hypnotized in front of the 3D projection. The real gem of the museum is, however, the Toca Toca area, where everyone will have fun, tasting one drop of every existing sea and all the types of sands existing in the world.
Here it is another artist whose work was focused on peculiar shapes and colors. This museum is all about the wonderful art of Salvador Dalì, but you should reach Figueres (130 km from Barcelona). This is perfect for those who spend more than a few days in Barcelona and are planning to visit some other places outside the city.
