✦ Own Experience From CosmoCaixa Science Museum

The following are some of our highlights from this museum:

✦ 1. Scientific Experiments at CosmoCaixa

This museum is more of a hands-on museum. There are in most cases quite a number of scientific experiments to try out. These different scientific disciplines are explained interactively.

The visitors get the chance to explore physical, technical, geological, and mathematical relations all by themselves during the experiments.

In addition, there is a lot to do and learn for little ones. They will be educated and at the same time, they will be well entertained.

It is not only the children who enjoy exploring topics in this museum, but also all other age groups.

An Interactive Exhibition

In the basement of the museum, there are experiments from a wide range of scientific disciplines. In fact, some of them are familiar to many visitors. This is because they are from back in physics classes in school.

I would highly recommend people of all ages to visit as there is so much to reflect and learn or even to just remind yourself.

✦ 2. Amazon Flooded Forest

The Amazon Flooded Forest includes an artificially made rainfall.

It has a walk into the rain forest that is tremendous.

The visitors are able to observe and hear different species from tropic regions, some of which roam freely. Besides, the landscape is great and the weather in the rain forest is nice.

✦ 3. Science Square

This is an open space in the compound of the Cosmocaixa Science Museum. It is part of the museum that also provides interactive displays.

At the end or before the adventure at the CosmoCaixa Science Museum, visitors can enjoy a picnic in this spacious outdoor garden.

This garden provides also some learning in this space and there are amazing views of other Barcelona monuments in this area.
