The CosmoCaixa Barcelona is one of Barcelona's main visitor attractions, an interactive and educational experience for adults and children alike. There are special children's activities that are designed to stimulate the young minds to take an interest in science. Regular educational workshops take place where children can experiment with scientific phenomena like heat, electricity, atmospheric pressure and sound. Each of its rooms explores a specific field, including mechanics, optics, meteorology and computer science. The planetarium explains aspects of astronomy. The research team organizes interesting temporary exhibitions. There's a library and teaching center on the premises.
