En esta actividad podrás construir tu propio cohete espacial. Para hacerlo funcionar y efectuar nuestro lanzamiento sólo necesitaremos: agua, aire y un poco de ingenio.

With water, starch and your imagination, anything is possible. Come and play with our TIPS.

The “Txiki” Planetarium is the ideal place to explore space in a fun and friendly way. With the help of two friends, the Earth and the Moon, we’ll be talking about the basic concepts of astronomy in the language of our youngest visitors.

¿Conoces ya nuestro txikiklik? Es nuestro espacio infantil dedicado a los sentidos, el bosque y la construcción de ciudades. Os invitamos a explorarlo guiados por nuestros monitores y descubrir así todos sus secretos.

In this activity you will be able to create your own rocket and launch it into the air. We will only need water, air and a little bit of wit

Discover the experiments we’ve got lined up for you. By mixing liquids together, chemistry turns into magic.

We will be learning to steer and control a Segway using our bodies and balance. That way we’ll discover the science governing the movement of vehicles like these.

Would you dare to sleep on a bed of nails? Discover why not a single one of its over 9,000 nails can hurt you, and become a real Fakir.

Meet the scientist Otto von Gericke and play a very special game of tug-of-war with us, your opponent will be the air.

Do you want to see what you’re like? Take a look through our microscope, and let us show you how to extract your life molecule, your DNA.

We live submerged in a sea of air. In this show we will be playing above and below atmospheric pressure.

Come and meet our new Work&Shop section and design your own badge. An art creative workshop directed to all ages. Sign up and tune your badge to shine in your sweater, bag…or anywhere else. More information at the reception desk

Thanks to light we can see, we can relate to each other, we can hide and we can live! But we can also play with it. Get a never-ending reflection of yourself in our mirrors, measure your body temperature or find out how light travels. Be daring and play with your reflection!

The plastination is a technique that let us preserve bodies and organs and contemplate the anatomie, human or animal, as never before. We invite you to a visit to this unique exposition.

We want to show you the secrets of the new guests of the museum. Reptiles, amphibians, fishes and many more are waiting for you to meet them.

Earth is one of the eight planets that are part of our particular family in the solar system. Come and get to know it.

There has been a murder on the museum. Come to help us becoming a member of the science police and analizing the crime scene.

Our five senses are the means we have to relate to and interact with our surroundings; sight, smell, taste, hearing and touch send all the information to our brains. But is everything we feel real? This room will deceive you!

We use electricity tens and hundreds of times a day whenever we flip a switch. Follow us on this visit and learn about electricity and magnetism and how we interact with them.

Physics is present in many devices and resources that make our daily lives easier. Without a knowledge of mechanics it would be impossible to fly across the sky in an aircraft and we would not be able to plough the seas on ocean-going vessels. In the mechanical world you will test how do machines work and what are the principles that rule them.

In this workshop you will learn how to use the most usefull tool to search the sky: the celestial planisferium. Build your own and have a look to the sky any day of the year.

In this room we’ll experiment with phenomena that occur on our planet and learn about the animals that live here.

Use a simple telescope to observe the Sun and discover the spots on its surface without harming your eyesight.

In this room you will find animals from tropical forests, deserts or seacoasts. You will even be allowed to touch some of them.

Electricity is a form of energy we use every day in all aspects of our lives, yet it is still a great unknown. In this show you and electricity will be the stars in incredible experiences, like turning on a light bulb without plugging it in, producing a real lightning storm, or making your hair stand on end… literally.

From Ancient Greece till halfway through the 18th century four elements were used to describe the Universe: earth, air, fire, and water. We will be making use of them to reveal the magic hidden behind the elements. We will be firing smoke canon, getting fire to dance to the sound of music, and making water glisten like never before.

The CO2 is a really famous gas. Come and find out what happens when we have it in a solid state...

Guess somebody else´s thinking, predict the result of a super addition…are some of the magic tricks that we will solve out with a little bit of mathematics.
