6euro an adult, 4 euro a child. Kids sitting in full sized fighter jets, VR experience, planetarium, so much to do. Well worth a visit. Just opposite the aquarium, we went after a d spent two hours there, it totally immersed the kids.
Great value for money the kids loved the interactive displays. Definitely worth a visit
An educational and interactive museum for both children and adults!
Children loved this museum, so much we visited twice in one week.
Not just for kids, but big kids also. Loved this place. So much to see and do
Great place to visit. You can see different technology, modern one and from the past. There are several experiments connected to electricity and physics which are nice to see and you can do them on your own.
Great museum, with emphasis on children. But grown-up will enjoy it to, at least I did.
Perfect day with kids or adults
Interesting place. Great if you've got children with you, lots of interactive things to do.
Lots to see and do... Much more than we all expected. The planetarium is great, the 4-D experience is quite amazing and there's even a "rollarcoaster". If it's too wet or cold to spend the day outside - this place is a definite must-see. We went twice during one stay in Las Palmas! :)
The museum is interesting for adults and children. I was impressed by the large number of exhibits that can be interacted with. Loved the friendly staff. In addition, the solution with the online audio guide was interesting.
If you're visiting the Gran Canaria, you have to see this incredible museum.
The museum was amazing! For a 10 yr old, we had so much to see, hear and visit. It was a full day of fun for us. Planetarium is spectacular, and we attended a projection in English. Also an audio tour is available in English as well for the entire museum. Robocoaster was also terrific. When in town, highly recommended to visit the museum!
Very nice place for kids, but adults can knows more about technology, astronomy and ecology.
The museum features all the scientific and technical developments from the past to the present. Their moto is "it is forbidden NOT to touch anything", so take your kids and let them explore the world of technical science. As you enter you will see the planes that you can sit in, operate all the buttons, the international space station model and fun balls that make the music as they slope down the metal paths. Upstairs, you will see how laws or physics are applied when you experiment with power, voltage, spin the colour wheel, observe optical illusions and much more. You can see the current projects Gran Canaria has with ISS or ESA, as well as how wind power plants work in the ocean. Furthermore, you see the dinosaurs' bones, human body, you can measure your heart beat, see virus model in a huge size... We were thrilled to experience virtual reality and you can choose to jump from a high building in the program (I was too scared!) A fun afternoon out is guaranteed when you visit this museum and the entrance fee is reasonable.
Awesome place to learn about new cool stuff in terma of biology, physics, planes and history. Perfect for families or friends. Also has a planerarium and a cinema, animals and a robotic arm atraction which you can ride in several modes. Simply great!
Brilliant place, so much to see and do, interact with so many things, and really really good entry price too, well recommended
The best place for kids and us much bigger kids Everything you want to know from anatomy to mathematics, all great inventions at one place.
The best museum in town. There are always plenty of activities, exhibitions, shows, documentaries, workshops and activities for both kids and adults. Very reasonable prices. Very interactive. The planetarium is very interesting, with several shows a day, access included in the price of the access ticket. We go in there with kids several times a year and never get bored.
Great place to take the kids. Virtual reality experiences, e sports center with many pcs
This place is both fun and educational for people of all ages. There are lots of things to learn, puzzles to solve, and even a giant mechanical arm to throw you around like a rag doll. There is a option to watch a 180 degree space video in the Planetarium, I would not recommend this as the room itself looks like it's been hit by an asteroid and the temperature was similar to that of the planet Pluto, as a result of this my partner and I were unable to focus and learnt nothing about our solar system and the surrounding milky bar. In conclusion, definitely give this place a visit but skip the Planetarium unless you're some kind of ice monster.
Good and very affordable place to spend a rainy or very hot day .
It was really informative with lots of different displays, very hands on, they even have a robotic rollercoaster that you can go on, and 3d cinema, virtual reality, planetarium, it's all inclusive of the admission price, which is only €6. It's a good half day..
Wow! Great place for a rainy day! Reserve at least 5 h to go around, play with things and experiment!! The ticket allows you to go out and then get back in, so you can grab a bite when you feel like taking a break. Loved it! There is really some cool stuff both for kids and adults!! :)
Went here for a day trip and loved all of it. Took our 4yr old who was also well entertained by it all. Especially enjoyed the human gyroscope, electrical exhibitions and the robot rollercoaster.
Small, but very interesting museum. A lot of things showed could be touched without somebody to bother you. The opportunity to sit inside in real fighter jet is exiting. No restrictions about photos. Entrance fee 6€.
a great place to spend the whole day! interesting and interactive games for kids, planetarium, technology and science in four walls! :) absolutely recommended, cheap even for non-residents.
Great place to learn something new. When rain came on went in and stayed for hours. Whent on robot arm like the jet pilots do do not tell a lie about your weight me and my brother did machine stop right at end was very intense. There's a 3d cinema wass amazing. Even if ya don't like science and stuff ya will enjoy. staff speak pefect English even understand glaswegion. Overall good place to go
I already visited this museum in 3 occasions with my kids 6, 10 and 14 and nephew 15 yo. The museum is packed with creative and interactve activities and games related with science. The fun side of it is so well accomplished that it s really difficult for kids and adults not to have a great time . The content and attractions are reviewed and upgraded regularly and thew staff is proffesional. A must have in any family To Do list.
Great place! Lots of interactive science stuff, probably the prime age for enjoying this the most is around 8-12 years. I'm 30 but I still loved it! If you enjoy science and are still playful at heart, this is a must if you're in Las Palmas. Great value for the money.
Amazing museum one of if not the best one on the Canary islands, just as good as the Science and industry in Manchester, UK. The DC9 is an Ex Iberia aircraft not Canary fly aircraft but now sponsored by them.
Great place to take the kids on a cloudy (or hot) day in Las Palmas. Lots of interactive displays and even a cool robot arm ride.
It’s a fantastic museum for family with young kids and teenagers. They have a wide range of science experiments and puzzles. The fighters jet is awesome. The robot is interactive and the Xbox games really engaging. They even have virtual reality for simulating an situation when you are on a plank of wood on a high-rise building. We had a great time there. They allow you to go out of the museum and go back in on the same day. We went out for lunch and went back in to see more demonstrations. It’s right beside the kids play area too.
Great museum for kids with loads of hands on experiments and equipment, especially upstairs. There were lots of school groups when we went and it was a bit hard occasionally to explain to our daughter why she couldn't just join in... But overall very good! Loved the machine in the lobby area too... Strangely mesmerising!
Fantastic museum! Lots of interactive stuff that will entertain any children from small right up through. We went twice two years ago and will likely go twice this time as there is just so much to see and do here from The 3D cinema to the planetarium, the gyroscope and avatar game. The robocoaster is great fun and our son loves the fighter jet and the two flight simulation programs. The virtual reality was surprisingly immersive and challenging for all of us! Highly recommend!
One of the must to see places, especially if you bring your kids with you. A lot of interesting expositions, presentations, tools to play and discover great world of knowledge. It was a very nice surprise to find the place, which is similar to what we have seen in Central Europe. Special presentations are only in Spanish but it is what you would normally expect. Magic show is more about entertaining audience by talking and serving jokes than magic tricks but besides this the whole experience is very good.
The best interactive museum I have ever visited
Honestly, I never thought that would be interesting! It was right infront of my hotel and in the last day of my visit to Gran Canaria I thought I'd give it a try .. spent half a day there and I loved it! very interesting and I think it's great for kids.
Great place! For children will be perfect! But I was 27, and it was very interesting))
Great place for adults and children. Plenty of activities in English and Spanish. At least 4 hours if visited completely.
Great for young minds and for the little ones to discover and experience a wide range of scientific activities! Prices are low and there are days when it is free~ such as Dec 6th
A nice place to bring kids who are interested in science and technology. The time pendulum is amazing.
This museum is a great and fun way to show off and teach a wide variety of science and technology to people unfamiliar with those matters. It is build with families and groups with kids in mind and the experiments and games are a fun way to learn some basics, but they also got a real Northrop F-5 Freedom Fighter for the grownups to strap themselves in and feel awesome. Go visit it if you're in the area!
Perfect for the whole family, an entry ticket valid the whole day so you can come and go as you please, there really is something for everyone here and despite it being relatively small it kept us entertained most of the day. There is a planetarium with a show in English and we watched two 3D films in English, and had a ride on the robotic arm thing which can be set to anything between gentle and wild. Highly recommend this museum.
