It can be difficult to please everyone on a family holiday. If you’re looking to venture a little further than the beach, Barcelona offers plenty of options that are guaranteed to keep kids of all ages entertained.
The IMAX screen in Barceloneta shows a variety of informative but wildly entertaining 3D films on topics ranging from the Oceans to Ancient Egypt! Get ready for open-mouthed amazement that will keep even the most fidgety of children glued to their seats for a couple of hours.
Right next to the IMAX is Barcelona’s famous aquarium. The aquarium offers educational classes for all ages, as well as numerous marine tanks and displays. And if finding Nemo isn’t high on the over-18s agenda, there’s even the possibility to book a shark-diving class!
3. Rowing at the Parc de la Ciutadella
If you’ve been over-indulging in paella and tapas, stretch your arms and hire a row-boat at the charming Parc de la Cituadella. At 10€ for a boat of five, it’s a wonderfully pleasant way to spend a hot afternoon without breaking the bank.
4. Museu de la Xocolata
Chocolate – loved by children and adults alike. If the idea of a museum usually inspires groans and complaints from the kids, you can bet this one will change their minds. The museum offers a wide variety of activities for all ages, from ‘Painting with Chocolate’ for infants, to an over 16’s only chocolate tasting session.
5. Illa Fantasia Waterpark
Enjoy the sunshine at the Illa Fantasia Waterpark, where thrill-seekers can race to the top of some heart-stopping slides, while those who prefer a gentler pace can relax in one of the many pools. There are a number of pools for smaller children too.
