Whether you’re six or 60 you’ll find something to hold your interest in Barcelona. Spain is a very child-friendly country and Barcelona is no different — almost all restaurants, hotels and even bars welcome kids, and no one will look at you strangely if you keep them out late. Transport in the city, including a robust metro and bus system, is cheap and easy to navigate, and you’ll find it simple taking strollers on board.
For kid-friendly fun, visit the Museu Blau, a museum dedicated to the natural world, filled with dinosaur skeletons and other beasts; the CosmoCaixa science museum, home to a living slice of the Amazon Rainforest; and, if you really want to be popular, the Chocolate Museum, where even your entry ticket is a bar of the sweet stuff.
Children are sure to love the city’s more famous attractions too —like Gaudi’s quirky and colorful architecture, from the stone sculptures and mosaics in Park Güell to the fairytale-esque Casa Batlló. When it’s time to chill out, take the little ones to Ciutadella Park, where they can enjoy themselves on the playground, ride row boats around the lake or visit animals at the zoo.
