Museu de la Ciència CosmoCaixa


Leaving Avinguda del Tibidabo, turn into Bosch i Alsina and keep going until you see COSMOCAIXA-MUSEU DE LA CIÈNCIA (106), (COSMOCAIXA-SCIENCE MUSEUM). The museum is partly housed in a Modernista building by Josep Domènech i Estapà, constructed between 1904 and 1909 as a home for the blind. CosmoCaixa Barcelona was inaugurated in September 2004 as a space designed for all manner of audiences, offering a wide range of scientific and educational activities, exhibitions, workshops, conferences, courses and discussions. Its permanent Sala Univers space offers an interactive route that commences from the Big Bang and concludes by exploring the human brain and the last frontiers of knowledge. The Flooded Forest and Geological Wall are two of the centre’s other unique attractions. CosmoCaixa also has a planetarium, conference rooms and activities for children, while another outstanding space is its Plaça de la Ciència, a large public square that was opened to the public with the construction of the museum.
