Take your kids to this unique theme park, which sits on top of a mountain and offers panoramic views of Barcelona. Your whole family can enjoy the thrilling ride on the Ferris wheel and other carousels while taking in the sun.

You can leave your belongings in luggage lockers and buy gifts at the park’s souvenir shop. Breastfeeding and changing rooms are available on site so you don’t have to worry if traveling with a baby.

Museum of Music: Find family harmony

There are hundreds of instruments to strike a chord with your kids. Show your kids that music is different and yet the same around the world. Listen to Balinese gamelans and jazz saxophones or see how pianos evolved from lyres to electronic keyboards. And what in the world is an idiophone? Check the schedule to see if you can go hear the glass flute or learn how to play a chair.

Note that strollers are welcome and there are storage facilities onsite. Baby changing stations are also available, and there is a café just at the museum’s entrance.

Poble Espanyol: Visit all of Spain in one village

Not all of Spain is the same. Wander through this living museum and let the kids discover the different regions of Spain. Andalusia, Galicia, Basque, Catalan, Castilla – all have unique identities and their own ways of having fun. Performers and artisans are eager to share stories and entertain, and maybe even teach. To engage young minds further, join in a detective game where you’ll meet characters who share information and clues to solve puzzles as you explore. Learn folk dances or watch the flamenco in action. Maybe try to make some jewelry or stained glass instead of buying souvenirs! Check the schedule for special events like medieval fairs and magic acts.



Strollers are allowed, although you should note that there may be some areas hard to navigate. Free lockers are available for storage, and the Wi-Fi is free. There are plenty of restaurants to try, and the whole attraction is open late (well past midnight on Fridays and Saturdays) if bedtimes are not an issue.

The Chocolate Museum: Taste history in action

Chocolate is full of flavor and history. The kids may enjoy learning about its journey from the Americas to Europe, and then how it is made into their favorite sweet. The Chocolate Museum has displays about history as well as chocolate-makers at work. And there is also plenty of chocolate-filled fun for every age. Everyone from infants to adults can paint with chocolate. Older children can listen to a chocolate elf tell tales or imagine they’re Aztecs and Mayans trading cocoa. Families can work together on creating tasty chocolate lollipops. Here, learning is sweet.

If you’re making the trip with small children, note that strollers are welcome, and there are baby changing facilities. The café mostly serves sweets, so you may want to bring alternatives or wait until your next stop. Some of the activities are scheduled, while others need to be booked in advance, so you should check the schedule and make the necessary arrangements.

The Olympics Museum: Learn the athletes’ stories

Bring your sports stars to the ultimate athletic venue. The Olympics Museum highlights the 1992 Barcelona Olympics and all sports, encouraging active lifestyles. This is not just a museum to look at Michael Jordan’s high-tops or wonder how heavy those torches were or whether billiards is a sport. Some exhibits take kids through the basics of various activities, then test their abilities on a climbing wall, batak equipment, and various simulators.

Children of all ages are welcome, and strollers are allowed. You must leave larger bags in lockers by the entrance. Food and drink are not allowed in, but there is a café on site.
