Cosmo Caixa in Barcelona

Page Content

Cosmo Caixa is a science museum that exhibits temporary and permanent displays where you can learn about science, natural surroundings and the universe. The museum was built from 1904 to 1909 as a shelter for the blind but closed down in 1979. Cosmo Caixa then is renovated and opened as a museum in 2004. It has touch-sensitive interactive exhibits for children along with a planetarium.

Our Insider Tip

Nobody likes waiting around in long queues to get their COVID test. The Express COVID testing service we recommend only works by appointment ensuring that you get tested when you need to without having to queue. Getting your COVID test in the city centre before your flight or cruise offers many advantages over getting tested in the Airport or from a cruise liner. You have your certificates on time without a rush, you have time to correct inaccuracies on your certificate and you have time to re-arrange your flight or other travel plans if you should test positive. To learn more about how to get your COVID travel certificates valid for planes, cruises and other transport, follow one of the links below to learn more.
