Science Museum Príncipe Felipe

The “City of the Sciences” was the name that the autonomous government gave to the initiative, and plans included a 370 meter high communications tower, which would have been the third highest one in the world at that time; a planetarium; and the museum of science. The total price of the works was estimated to be about 25,000 million pesetas. Among the exhibitions you are invited to touch, feel and think about are the Electricity Theatre. In front of an auditorium, with seating for up to 50 people, your hair will literally stand on end as a slightly eccentric inventor demonstrates the physical principles of electricity

L’ Oceanogràfic

Built on 2 levels, the upper floors of Europe’s largest aquarium features outdoor exhibitions and is surrounded by a magnificent fresh water lake inhabited by pelicans, cormorants and flamingos. On the lower level, you will find representatives of the world’s main marine ecosystems. Go on a journey through the Mediterranean, global wetlands, temperate and tropical seas, the Antarctic, Arctic, oceans of the world, and even the Red Sea. The Dolphinarium alone contains more than 24 million liters of water, reaching a depth of 10.5 meters. Get to know the behavior of more than 45,000 aquatic creatures from 500 different species, including belugas, walrus, jellyfish, sea lions and sharks. And, when you fancy a break, there’s an underwater restaurant!
