Parque de las Ciencias de Granada Spain
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Parque de las Ciencias de Granada

In addition to its historical and cultural heritage, Granada also has one of the country's most modern museums: the Science Park. It is the first interactive science museum in Spain. Opened in 1995 by Carlos Ferrater, and awarded the National Architecture Prize in 2009, its 7,000m² are home to all sorts of exhibitions dedicated to science and scientific knowledge. The main building houses a planetarium, an astronomical observatory, a 1,000m² temporary exhibition hall, and a room dedicated to physics and mechanics in which visitors can put what they've learnt from their visit into practice. There is also a room dedicated to optical illusions with different mirrors and lenses, and another space for nature with documents explaining the formation of the continents and natural disasters, for example. For its youngest visitors (aged 3 to 7), the museum has created a special area adapted to their age where they can also learn about science while playing. The museum is surrounded by botanical gardens that make for a very pleasant stroll. Decorated with sculptures representing the great scientists that marked history, the gardens also offer an interactive discovery of the history of science. At the far end of these gardens visitors will find the Macroscope, which has a Pavilion where you can travel to the centre of the human body, and another with a forum on new technologies. Lastly, the huge Observation Tower, which dominates the rest of the structures from 37m high, offers a panoramic view of the city that is not to be missed.
