Floor plan of Museu de les Ciències

The Museu de les Ciències has over 42,000 square meters of constructed area, of which 26,000 square meters are for exhibitions. The building is distributed over four floors:

Ground floor

On the ground floor, there is the so-called “Minor Street”, where the main public services are located (ticket offices, dining options, shops, etc.), as well as access to the Santiago Grisolía Auditorium and the Arquerías Hall, where all kinds of conferences and events are held. “Minor Street” is freely accessible to the public and hosts various exhibitions throughout the year.


First floor

On the first floor of the Museum, visitors encounter interactive science exhibitions and scientific representations, where they can experiment with modules such as L’Espai dels Xiquets or the exhibition Up to space. Mission espacial. It is also possible to attend the Science Theater.


From the first floor, visitors can access the “Main Street“, where there is an artistic representation of the DNA molecule through a 15-meter-high sculpture and the Foucault Pendulum, which, with its 34 meters in length, is one of the longest pendulums in the world.


Additionally, on “Main Street”, visitors can admire the impressive glazed surface of the Museum, with over 4,000 glazed panels on its north façade, and the fantastic panoramic views of the Turia River Garden from the outdoor terraces.


Second floor

The second floor is dedicated to the exhibition “The Legacy of Science” Through a chronological journey supported by audiovisual material, the life and evolution of the research of three prominent Nobel Prize winners—Santiago Ramón y Cajal, Severo Ochoa, and Jean Dausset—are showcased.


Visitors can observe part of Ochoa’s legacy, which includes his personal and scientific archive, as well as his library containing over 1,200 volumes.


Additionally, this floor hosts an exhibition dedicated to Santiago Grisolía.

Third floor

Visitors explore the impressive Chromosome Forest, with over 2,600 square meters dedicated to the greatest milestone of modern science: the sequencing of the human DNA molecule. It is a large-scale representation of the 23 pairs of chromosomes of the human species. Around each one, there are 127 interactive modules related to specific genes and their functioning.


Guests will find exhibition materials related to curious phenomena about astronomy in Zero Gravity or will visit the International Space Station in the Space Simulator. Additionally, they will uncover all the secrets of the ‘Red Planet’ in Mars. The conquest of a dream.
