The Mammoth Museum
The Mammoth Museum is a museum that can safely assume that children will love. It is a small museum, so it does not will take long time to visit it, but if you take advantage of the guided tour that offers included in the price of admission, you will pass a very interesting and instructive great time.
The museum is a great friend of children, as it allows even celebrating birthdays or other children's parties. Do not hesitate to request information from the museum because they will offer you a wide range of activities for the little ones.
The Mammoth Museum is in El Born which is a nice area for strolling, and it is not far from the Parc de la Ciutadella, the Barcelona Zoo and the Arc de Triomphe if you want to take a walk.
Egyptian Museum of Barcelona
The Egyptian Museum of Barcelona is anything but a children's museum, but according to children ages it can be an unforgettable museum, not only for the stunning mystery behind this ancient civilization, but because it is very difficult that sarcophagi or the mummy exposed in the museum go unnoticed for them.
The exhibits are of amazing quality and the children if they are not very young, will hardly forget the visit to the museum.
The Egyptian Museum is very close to Passeig de Gràcia which is one of the main shopping streets of Barcelona.
Tibidabo Automata Museum
This museum is in the Tibidabo amusement park and you can not ignore it if you're near the park. It is one of the most important automata museums in the world.
In principle the visit will not take long time, unless the kids (or adults) are playing with automats or there are many people.
Adding to the lure it can make to children to visit the Tibidabo amusement park, keep in mind you can do a combination of Tramvia Blau and the funicular, which for the little ones can be an adventure. By the by, while the blue tram is very economical the price of funicular is not.
The Blue Tram
From HappyBarcelona.eu we recommend you that if you are visiting the Automata Museum with children, to have in mind to visit to the Tibidabo amusement park and devote the entire day to the little ones. The Museum of Automata traditionally forms part of the Tibidabo amusement park.
Maritime Museum of Barcelona
Very close to the monument to Columbus you will find the Drassanes Reials (Royal Shipyards), housing the Maritime Museum of Barcelona. It is a quite economical museum, where you can have a good time with the kids. It has exposed a huge ship, the Royal Galley, which will for sure attract kids attention for its size.
The Maritime Museum of Barcelona is a very good resource if you are in the lower part of the Ramblas with children. In addition, in the Port Vell is moored (seasonal) the schooner Santa Eulalia, a sailboat that you can visit showing the Maritime Museum admission ticket, as it is part of the museum.
The Maritime Museum is very close to the Wax Museum and minutes from the Maremagnum Shopping Mall where you will find fast food restaurants and cinemas. It is also near to the Imax Port Vell or the Aquarium of Barcelona.
There is little to be said about the relationship between chocolate and children. With few exceptions, they will make their mouth watering watching the figures that the artists have been able to do with this food, as well as they will discover where chocolate came from and how it is made, and of course you will be able to taste their delights in the museum shop.
The Chocolate Museum (Museu de la Xocolata) is in El Born, a very nice neighborhood for strolling and relatively close to the Barcelona Mammoth Museum, the Arc de Triomphe, the Parc de la Ciutadella andthe archaeological site in the former Born market (Mercat del Born).

The Museum of Magic
El Rey de la Magia (King of Magic), is a museum located very close to Plaça Catalunya (Catalonia Square) which allows you to combine your visit with other activities or walks with children, as it is in the center of Barcelona.
It is a small museum but in turn the entrance fee is fairly inexpensive. If your kids are fans of magic, you can attend a live performance which take place at the museum. To attend the show also entitled you to visit the museum. They offer a little shop but El Rey de la Magia, has a larger store in Princesa Street, near the Mammoth Museum.
