The Museum of Natural Sciences in the Parc del Fòrum is an open and dynamic space. All 9,000 square metres of it are spread over two floors. At the main entrance you're welcomed by the skeleton of a whale that beached itself on Catalan shores in 1862. The museum is made up of installations and spaces that include 'Planet Life,' an exhibition that takes you through the history of life and its co-evolution with Earth; the media library; and the Science Nest, where children up to age six can explore and play with natural materials.
Don't sleep on Barcelona as the perfect family city. The kids' activities here are endless, from child-friendly museums to theatre shows, and zoos, aquariums and old-school fairgrounds. If your little ones are adventurous types, there's even the brand new Jump Yard, the largest indoor activity park in the city, which opened in February 2023.
So treat the kids to the day out of dreams, whatever kind of activity they fancy, and why not join in while they do? The best part? You're in Barcelona, so when you're done doing activities, you can relax with tapas and a cold glass of wine to see out your evening. What could be better? Here are the best family-friendly activities in Barcelona right now.
