If you like to experience what science is about, this is a great place to explore. You can try many things which help you understand physics. I would not do the Planetarium again though as it was not that much about planets.

It's place is a real gem, a bit far from the touristic routes and harder to get there but it's really worth visiting - especially with kids !
It's a science museum but practically everything can be touched or played with and 90% of the descriptions are also in english.
Definitely the best part is the "amazon jungle", complete with animals, fish and even a rain :)

The entrance is cheap for adults (4 EUR per person) and for kids below 14 years the entrance is free.

Must see! Amusing, fun, children ( and adults) enjoy it! And cheapest in Barcelona, free entry for kids. Spent more than 3 hours there.

Took our grandchildren (live in BCN) several times and they always find something new to see and learn. One of the biggest natural science museums in Europe but not on the sightseeing list for most families visiting BCN. You should take your kids. You will enjoy it and it is cool, quiet and a great break from the heat and crowds. Also should try the restaurant (not the cafeteria) as the menu is served cafeteria style (Americans Will know what I mean) and you can go back as often as you want for more. Very unusual in Spain. Service staff very friendly and attentive.

Couldn't believe how great the value for money is - only cost us 3-4 euros each and we spent about 3 hours there! The exhibits are very informative and there are plenty of interactive displays for the kids to play with. Also check out their indoor rainforest!
