CosmoCaixa, the most enjoyable museum experience

13 September, 2011 0 comments

CosmoCaixa stands out as the most visited and prominent cultural and educational centre in the city. The Picasso Museum and the Barça Museum, with its myriads of visitors all year round, are not too far off. In this case, CosmoCaixa is located in the mountain of Tibidabo in a tall building that was extended and refurbished only a few years ago. It is a great place to visit with the whole family, it offers an impressive tour through science, nature and the origin of man. It’s a different way to learn science through many different fun activities. Even at the entrance you can see some surprising examples. Inside, you will be able to touch the different exhibits in the rooms, play, walk into a forest with several plant species… all of the activities have a purpose. This place is ideal if you have children because they love it. You also have the Planetarium, a room where you can sit in the dark and see all the different planets and the universe while listening to very interesting information about them. This trip seems quite real and you will also feel relaxed after it. The temporary activities are the real protagonists of the museum. At the moment, it’s worth mentioning the dinosaur exhibitions, with some skeletons really well reproduced in life-size. The museum is, at the same time, a place for research and scientific debate. There are presentations, conferences and activities for different audiences in this wonderful building. When you want to visit this or other museums, it is very important to book a hotel located in the centre, so you can easily access all of these interesting places, such as  Hotel Caledonian, that offers great  quality services for all guests.
