About CosmoCaixa Science Museum

Views: 380. Updated: Oct 3, 2021 by: Barcelona Travel Hacks

The historic part of the building in which the museum is located was built between 1904 and 1909 by the architect Josep Domenech i Estapa, and was initially used as housing for blind girls. It's a beautiful work of modernist architecture, with its simple red bricks and the wonderful, decorative mosaics.

In 1979, the building was expanded, and opened to the public in 1981 as a science museum called Caixa. In the following years, further extensions became necessary, until the museum had to be completely re-designed. The new part of the building, made of glass and located underground, was created by the architects Esteve and Robert Terradas.

The current CosmoCaixa museum opened in September 2004 with a total exhibition space of 50,000 square metres and was named European Museum of the Year in 2006.

I visited on a weekday in the morning and paid 5 euros for the ticket. This museum is child friendly with most of the exhibits being designed for children, but at the same time very interesting for adults.
