Welcome

The Science and Water Museum opened in 1996, with the aim of  promoting and popularizing science in a fun and interactive way for all audiences (children and adults), which contributes to the popularization of scientific knowledge and method. Furthermore, the museum also has a global and interdisciplinary nature with the participation in the common goal of other nationals museums and with the principles of “learning and having fun” or “learning interactively”.


The museum has four spaces:

Temporary Hall

A hall for temporary exhibitions for the dissemination of current scientific topics, allowing visitors to regularly enjoy new content. Paleontology and Mineralogy, Volcanology, Mathematics, Aquariology, Geography, Optics, Entomology, Medicine, Music and Astronomy have been some of the disciplines examined, always looking for new ways to explain different topics, with interactive materials and the use of new technologies.

Water Hall

Water is the most familiar chemical substance to us and is also present in our daily lives being indispensable for the life of all living beings.

In the Water Hall you can discover the relationship of water with different scientific disciplines in a fun way, and the importance of responsible use of water resources. All of this through over forty interactive modules, aquariums and terrariums comprising four different areas identified by colours:

  • Water and Science
  • Water and Life
  • Water and Geography
  • Water and Uses

Discover and Imagine Hall

This hall is dedicated to children aged between 3 and 7 years. Its main objective is to work and stimulate the senses, allowing children to learn how to relate each of it with different parts of the body. The children also have the possibility of meeting other living things such as fish, amphibians, reptiles … With the help of monitors, these young scientists observe and learn the different characteristics of their habitats.
