Venue

COSMOCAIXA

Address: Isaac Newton, 26 - 08022 Barcelona, Spain Google Maps

The building's history started more than a century ago, in 1904, when the architect Josep Domènech i Estapà used the Modernista style of the time to construct the Amparo de Santa Lucía institution, in operation for 75 years.
In 1979 the "la Caixa" Foundation commissioned the architects Jordi Garcés and Enric Sòria to remodel and enlarge the building to house the Science Museum, becoming Spain's first interactive museum dealing with scientific themes. The subsequent refurbishment to transform the museum into CosmoCaixa was designed by the architects Robert and Esteve Terradas and the new centre opened its doors on the 25th of September 2004.
