Barcelona is a city that surprises us every day with unique spaces to discover. This is our selection for an unforgettable family getaway.
A museum where you can discover science and technology in a playful and interactive way through its hands on activities like “toca toca”, “click” and “flash”. One of its most unique exhibits is the Bosque Inundado (the Flooded Rainforest), an exact replica of a part of the Amazon rainforest, with its fauna, flora and real weather.
Right in the heart of Barcelona’s El Raval neighbourhood, the Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA) exhibits works of art from the second half of the 20th century. The museum’s MACBA en Familia programme offers families a space to learn about the museum, its contents and day-today running through play.
