CosmoCaixa, Barcelona’s science museum, is housed in a Modernista building dating from 1909.

Barcelona’s science museum, which includes a planetarium and an Amazon rain forest, is housed in a Modernista building now dedicated to modern science.

The building, designed by architect Josep Domènech i Estapà, was initially a home for the blind, known as the Empar de Santa Llúcia, which closed in 1979. Two years later, the first popular science museum in the whole of Spain, and one of the best in Europe, opened there. This was an innovative idea for taking science to the public. Following a refurbishment in 2004 that expanded the museum’s facilities to their current 50,000 square metres, it was renamed CosmoCaixa and is known by that name today.
