It was billed to us as a kid friendly museum, with a slide to take you from the top floor to the bottom. We were expecting lots of hands on stuff for the kids. The price felt a bit steep - 28 Euro for two...More

I thought this place was way too expensive for what it was - I think 7 euros, and you can see some of what's inside in the shop which is free. Also took only 20mins to walk around. However, it did really make me smile...More

What a dashing week we had in Barcelona. We thought of closing by giving the kids something to remember, and were looking forward to an hour of fun at the museum of ideas and inventions. But after paying the 8 euros each to get in,...More

We saved this for our last day in Barcelona as a treat for the kids. It was a trap and took 20 Euros for absolutely nothing. There is more on the outside of the 'museum' than the inside. Please don't waste your money and time...More

We enjoyed this small museum but were a bit sad the slide was out of order. My daughter had great fun on the calorie exercise bike - you choose a pack of crisps on the display, then have to cycle enough to burn off the...More

I greatly enjoyed my time in this museum. The entry price was 5€ for students (7€ regular) and perhaps a little high for a small museum, but it was worth it to me. I laughed out loud at some of the inventions like the florescent...More

This museum certainly was different from other ones we had been to. There wasn't a lot in it, but what they did have was great. There wasn't as much as I expected for the 7 euro per person entry price though. I would reccomend it...More

We were expecting quite a lot after reading the museums website but were disappointed. The slide was out of order for 'annual maintenance'. Whilst there were a few quirky and interesting inventions on display, there was just not enough to keep you there, and we...More

This mueseum is a fun and irreverant look at scientific ideas, inventions and often their young createurs. It will take just over an hour to go around as it is really just a shop on two floors. I liked the video in the Gents. Very...More

What a lovely little museum! For those of you that had enough of art and history in Barcelona's museums, this is a welcome change. It is full of tiny gadgets and creative inventions. Inspiring and funny. We also loved the videos of the various machines....More

Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of
Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days
under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local
