Things to do in Barcelona with kids
Barcelona has a wide variety of kids activities. Below a list of activities that are great for visiting with kids.
One of our favourites is the Cosmo Caixa. This is a science museum to stimulate people’s knowledge of science. You can do fun activities and go to the interactive exhibitions. It is educational and fun at the same time.
Located in the Gothic Quarter, there is a fantastic Aquarium that also has a tunnel where you can see big sharks, moonfish, mantas and many other sea creatures. There are also many spaces where kids can play.
Close to the Ciatudella Park there is a cute little chocolate museum. At Museu de la Xocolate your children can learn about the history of chocolate. The kids can see how the chocolate is made and you can walk around various sculptures made entirely of chocolate. The best part of it, can taste it too!
Not located in Barcelona, but an easy train or car journey away you find the attraction park that includes everything from Sesame street rides to other thrilling rides. PortAventura theme park is a park for every age with the fastest and tallest ride in Europe!
Another must see for kids is The Tibidabo amusement park. A fun park on top of the Tibidabo mountain. With a magical carousel and 25 thrilling rides where you get an incredible view. Do not forget to visit the Sagrat Cor Cathedral and take stunning pictures of the Barcelona from above.
The zoo is one of the activities that all children like to go. The Barcelona Zoo has 2,000 animals from around 300 different species. It's located very centrally in the middle of the city in the Ciutadella Park.
Last but not least. A great thing to go to with kids is the Miniature Catalonia Park. Your kids will be able to touch the peaks of the Sagrada and can climb on the gingerbread houses from Park Guell. The whole park has endless fantastic photo opportunities. It’s basically like a kid’s indoor playground in Barcelona!
