Avoid. Waste of money...a few poorly displayed bits of tatty rubbish. There are much better and free museums in Barcelona.

We were there 30 mins, and I am sure if we went through our house we could find more gadgets or attractions. Otherwise just put on QVC. Don't recommend but if you have nothing to do before your flight a bit of a laugh! Which...More

Another typical place in Barcelona to strip you. Locals are masters of selling worthless stuff at 'reasonable' prices. Simple objects that any high-school student would make, presented in a terrible, humid cellar. Not worth the money.

A quirky little museum, would definitely be more enjoyable to share this experience with children. Some things were not working including the scales and slide (which I notice in another review were not working back in Oct 2015 either) staff were friendly. Very small -...More

This place has nothing to show. A few stands with some old internet junk. You just pay 8 euro and spend 20 minutes wondering why did you do that. Skip this place, Barcelona has much more to offer.

under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local
