Opinions about Science Museum in Granada
A unique science parkIt is a unique science park. Bio Dome is great, with reptiles, Lemurs, and many birds. Many exhibits: the human body and music, a maze, a greenhouse for butterflies. Plenty of interactive places for children to play.
If you have a car, come early, there is a small parking in front of the museum.
There is a cafeteria, but the food is not good, better bring your own food, there are many places where you can sit and eat your meal.
Great Bio Domo and interactive areasBig Science Park divided into many sections. Worth visiting just for the Bio Domo alone - a tropical zoo which contains a large aquarium, a variety of plants and of animals.
Other sections are prevention of accidents, observation tower, human body, interactive areas for both Kids and Adults and many others.
Go early, you need a lot of time to see everything, it is better to have a full day available.
What a surpriseYou would not expect Granada to have such a fantastic Science Park. The quality of the exhibitions is amazing. If you are staying for several days, it is a must go place.
Our children really enjoyed Bio Domo and the human body section. There is the observation tower with fantastic views of Granada.
The staff is very helpful.
