There are the Pueblo Español, the Zoo, and the Aquarium. I am sure your children will enjoy them.

Just to add to Benny's advice, have a look at 'THings to Do' or/and 'Before You Go' on the left ,

there is Family article,

Barcelona is a nice city. Lots of things to do... But for children?? Forget it! Try Tarragona, Salou, Mallorca or somewhere less city..

Your're joking!! My kids LOVED Barcelona - we went to the Aquarium, on the open top bus, glass bottomed boat ride, and even on the gondola (I remember them laughing at me even at 4 & 5 years old as I was scared lol!!!)

I add some suggestions for children.

chocolat museum:


sciencie museum:


tibidabo luna park:


"las golondrinas" (little boat that mades roads in the harbour:


and of course the Zoo, the Aquarium, the parks (ciutadella park, Laberint d'horta..)

The opera house (liceu) has some operas for children at mornings, etc

It depents of the period of your visit you can ask for some "festa major" (quartier festival dedicated to the honour of a saint), usually there are "correfocs", giants, children games....

Well obviously Barcelona has got stuff for children, both local kids and visitors!

Obviously this always depends on kids individual interests and in this case also their willingness to walk as much of Barcelona is best visited on foot combined with public transport.
