Barcelona is an incredible city with an extensive cultural offer adapted for all tastes and the museums, as is normal, cannot be excluded from this. The best is that there are very interesting thematic museums and for sure you will find one that will delight your children.
If you have a budding scientist at home perhaps the Science Nest at the Natural Science Blue Museum will suit you. It is for children between 0 and 6 years of age and they learn things related to the world of science in a playful way by touching anything they want to touch. The science museum Cosmo Caixa is another of the best proposal where children can learn things related to science, geology, or biology, they have a wonderful time and find everything fascinating.
The famous Barcelona Wax Museum situated in the Ramblas is another of the best recommendations because the children love seeing close up the incredible wax figures and recognise some of the well-known modern, historical, comic, or horrifying celebrities.
In the area of the Borne you will find the Mamut Museum, another of those preferred by children because apart from seeing skeletons of prehistoric animals, they can also touch and smell many of the pieces on show and also enjoy the activities organised specially for them.
For those with a sweet tooth, the Chocolate Museum will surely awaken the senses (and the stomach). Available is a large exposition of objects and documents explaining the origin of cocoa and how chocolate is produced. Also there are many chocolate shapes that surprise both children and adults.
The Barcelona Inventions and Ideas Museum, the MIBA, is one of the most intriguing that you can see in the city. Here you will find some of the most original and unusual gadgets you can imagine. These could be practical inventions such as easy to use Chinese tooth picks or a cup with a place for biscuits or clever and innovative ideas such as a shampoo that generates ideas. Laughter and surprises are guaranteed here.
If you would like to come with the family to visit some of these museums for children we recommend that you book accommodation at one of the Petit Palace hotels in Barcelona from where you can easily visit the city’s most significant neighbourhoods such as the Gothic area.
