Me and my friend went to this museum on a whim and we ended up loving it! The place was filled with so many intricate little experiments, fun for both kids and adults. As a scientist myself, seeing this museum made me so happy, as it teaches kids about science in a fun way and is exciting to see the next potential scientists. We also weren't expecting an indoor rainforest. It really took us by surprise because we only saw fishes on the glass window down below, but we look up and see tree's as well! We also went to watch the planetarium, the ticket price was affordable and like the museum, it's fun for both kids and adults. We were given an audio guide in English so and that helped us understand what was happening. The audio guide can also be found in other languages, I don't remember how many but from memory there was French and Italian, but also Spanish for those who're hard of hearing. Booking tickets online may deter tourists because the website to book museum tickets is only in Spanish, but we didn't have much trouble. Also we weren't able to buy the planetarium tickets online and were under the impression it was sold out, but were able to buy some tickets through the reception counter. If we had more time, we'd have come to the museum again to try out all of the mini experiments.
The museum has very interesting history and inventions. There’s so much to learn about, from the evolution of the earth to the evolution of the human. I highly recommend coming to see this museum even if you’re not a science fanatic. After few hours exploring the museum we went to the cafeteria which at the museum, you don’t have to fully exit the place. Prices are convenient, I got a cup of tea with milk, 2 sandwiches for approximately 6€. The cafeteria is very clean and has outlets to charge your phone.
This is one of the best science centres I've ever visited, and I've been to several. My kids had a blast, and I was really surprised that they were admitted for free. My entrance of €6 felt like a steal. We didn't participate in any of the activities, but saw a show at the Planetarium which my kids liked (shows and activities cost extra but are not expensive). Highlights were the interactive exhibits and the indoor rain forest exhibit.
Wonderful place! So much too see and the exposition, with the theme 'sun', was stunning. I can recommend that place for everyone who is interested in science. It's also very nice for young and old. You can do very many interactive things. I'd love to give that place 10 stars. It was one of the best experiences in a museum I have ever had.
a science museum in which there is a small forest with the possibility to see some animals. It is also definitely interesting for children, you will find various activities related to the theories and principles of physics. Educational visit. Tickets can be purchased online for 6 € but you do not have the opportunity to visit the planetarium, a creative room (which is really only for children to have fun), you have to buy these other options and therefore the ticket price is more expensive. Very nice!
