Museu de les Ciències


The Museu de les Ciències has become a reference point for interactive science. Its main objective is stimulating curiosity and critical thinking and at the same time surprising and amusing the public by its contents from the world of science, technology, and the environment.

The diversity of interactive exhibitions and the numerous activities of dissemination that have been carried out at the Museu have helped to make it a great success with members of the public, who have responded enthusiastically to its bid to disseminate science and technology from an amusing and entertaining viewpoint without forgetting the scientific precision necessary when approaching the subjects treated.

The exterior of this museum captivates the visitor in its own right. The building is magnificent in its proportions and organic shapes and houses a multitude of activities and initiatives related to the evolution of life and scientific and technological dissemination.


The Museu de les Ciències, the work of the Valencian architect Santiago Calatrava, is unique in the world for the geometry of the building, its structure, the materials employed and the constant presence of nature within it.


In the Museu building, architecture, engineering and art have a close relationship, both with the world of science and technology and with several basic principles: simplicity of approach and elegance of architectural forms. Hence, in the Museu building, the contents and the container achieve an overall coherence.

The Museu de les Ciències has many guided tour options.

The Museum has its own personality, in the style of modern architecture that makes museum containers part of the collection itself or their content. Its enormous size allows it to host various types of activities at the same time, unlike small museums, which must limit their function to a particular field of science or nature.
