Like most of Barcelona's other museums, this structure in San Gervasi is as impressive as the collection within. Cool and airy, with slate water pools and acres of glass, it is dominated by a glittering chrome spiral staircase that cascades down six floors, offset by raw steel and lit by tangerine and fire-engine-red skylights. Once in the exhibition space proper, visitors encounter an array of interactive objects, such as dinosaur skeletons, ancient Buddhist prayer books, plasma balls, pendulums, stick insects, and scorpion fish. Don't miss the pièce de résistance—a cross-section of the Amazonian rain forest in a giant tank, complete with piranha fish and capybaras (the world's biggest rodent).

Closed Mondays.
