I would recommend this museum to everyone. The opportunity to walk into a spaceship and play with so many experiments. Your kids will love it too. Ask for some special days and times with children activities for free.

I was not expecting a science museum in Cuenca. I thought it was marvelous as did my 12 year old son. The museum is completely interactive so he was able to touch and experiment to his hearts content. Some interesting historical, geological and space exploration...More

This is an interactive museum. Everything you see has a hands on experience to enhance understanding. It is well documented and nicely set out. Not too crowded and well staffed should you need assistance.

Kids liked it, lots of things to try and not just to look at. Huge clock was interesting, but very noisy. Exhibits about space travel, planets, reptiles, energy...Would have wished more info in English.

This is a lovely science museum tucked away in a medieval town. It is full of interactive displays and even has a planetarium. Very friendly staff took the time to explain exhibits- in English!

We didn't realise it was a science museum until we got inside - but we weren't sorry. This museum has a range of really excellent features and, for adults and children, many are interactive. I would say if you are here with children, it is...More

It is not the biggest science museum around, but has interesting things. Some are interactive what makes it nice. The exhibition is modern. If you like science is a must.

Takes you from the beginning if time to space exploration. I particularly liked the fossils that were uncovered in Cuenca. I think this should be a last stop because the real attraction is the hanging houses. Personally, I don't think this is a must see.

A surprisingly nice science museum in such a small town. It offers a lot of exhibits to play with - both for children and for adults.
