“Fun place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2013

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 for one visit but wouldn't bother going back again.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2013

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 only spent about 45 minutes inside. Quite poor value for money - 19 Euro for a family of three.

“A small but perfectly formed mueseum.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2013

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 silly but fun! All the exhibits are in Catalan, Spanish & English.
€7 Adults and €5 for children aged 4-12. Oh and it closes for lunch and reopens at 1600.

“Different and enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2012 via mobile

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. Highly recommended!
Unrelated, there is an adjacent shop with wonderful crystals that are probably way too expensive to buy but are a treat to the eyes.
