The museum is neat and well organized, maybe the taxiderm animals are a bit gloomy but still good...We were lucky there was a specific show on Spinosaurus...awesome!!!

We were in the museum a couple with two children, as someone who it's his fifth time in Barcelona it was a refreshing experience because it's the first time we visited this museum and to find out that it is next to Primark was the cherry on the cake :)
The museum itself is very friendly and contains interactive exhibits and is very accessible even to children who do not understand the language (our children were 4 and 2.5 years old and enjoyed it very much), we loved the stuffed animal show and the exhibition of the dinosaur which is very impressive.

This is a great museum. Traditional cabinet exhibits, short films and touch tables. Very accessible for visually impaired (although I could not say whether braille is for English or Spanish) and small children may need lifting up to feel the touch exhibits. Nice system of showing individual exhibit placing on phylogenetic trees. Nice and compact for school trips, additional spaces for learning, some with computers. Some areas are rather dark and a nursery group that was there during our visit obviously had some children that found this a bit scary.
Very close to beach so great fall back in case of inclement weather. I really enjoyed the geological and paleontological exhibits - there are also some cases of stuffed animals and birds.

Nice place with average exposition about earth history. The exhibition is small and without many interactive tools for young children

It was very empty during my visit in this interestingly designed building that sits above the ground. The initial galleries are very well laid out and take you through stages in the earth's development with projections on the wall that need no language and fossils from the period. Many of the remaining exhibits had interesting facts rather than just descriptions and some of the smaller rooms used effective ways to demonstrate things such as the classification room that used sorting of buttons to explain how animals could be classified. A tip is to take your glasses if you wear them. The museum could be even better if:
a) Labels were above rather than below cases in the initial section with larger font.
b) In the fascinating room on animal behaviour. Rather than having 4 screens on different topics that cycle through Spanish, Catalan and English have 3 screen for each of the languages, showing all of the topics after each other. Not doing this meant a long wait when all the screens started showing the same language.
c) There appeared to be an error in the description in the classification room when it showed the number of known species and predicted species as there seemed to be inconsistency in different places as to whether the predicted number of species included those already known or not.
