The NAT Venues

Museu de Ciències Naturals de Barcelona

Science nest

This area is set aside for youngsters up to 6 years of age who come here on school visits or with their family. The idea is to stimulate an interest in science and, above all, to let them enjoy the fun of discovery, spontaneous activity and play.

Animals, plants, rocks and minerals are part of this nest. Elements of nature are not independent, they are all connected . They help us understand the world around us. From now you will find a new element, the nest tree, connecting with all other resources already present in this space.
