The name CosmoCaixa intrigued before I knew what it was, maybe by as much as this blog post does to you!
When you’re in need of a place to go with your child that will keep them occupied and not require much work of you, go there.
What is cosmocaixa?
A Science museum!
From my own experience of science museums in different countries, they are always a great place to go. You press lots of buttons, take photos, see crazy inventions and unique mechanisms.
There’s such a diverse mix of things to see that it helps to encompass all types of people.
So when it comes to children, it’s perfect! They get to experiment, learn and play.
How is COSMOCAIXA?
It’s huge, and I’m sure when Riley and I visited it, we missed things. The missing things is how they get you to come back again!
When it comes to the basics of a science museum, this place ticks the boxes of what I’d personally look for: buttons, wheels and cogs, optical illusions and wildlife. But then they threw an little (HUGE) extra thing into the works….
You don’t just get all the standards, but you also get an aquarium/rainforest experience; climate and all.
How to get there
There’s always a few ways to get anywhere but personally I always find easiest to just go by train. So, we went by train. We headed to Av. Tibidabo and then walked up the mammoth hill to be greeted by another hill and a bridge (top picture). So just be prepared if you decide to not take a taxi, bus or tram up to the top. All in all, worth it though and can’t go wrong with a bit of exercise.
