Visit Barcelona with the little ones of the family!
When you travel on your own, or with a group of friends or your partner or any adult in general is more or less easy to program your itinerary, but when you travel with kids, is a little bit different, because the normal tours might bore them or the spaces are too crowded and they cannot move freely, or they must remain silent because the guide is talking, etc etc etc.
My intention with this blog is to give you a list of Barcelona´s seesights where you can go with your children, have a good time and enjoy the city. In every Barcelona attraction down below, I´ve left the link so you can access their websites and check for more info about tickets, timetables, and others.
What to do in Barcelona if you travel with kids?
The Aquarium is one of Barcelona´s attractions by excellence for kids to enjoy and learn about the marine fauna.
You can easily found it, because is near Maremagnum Mall located in Port Vell.
Barcelona Zoo is amazing for kids because we all know they love animals, in that way they are able to enjoy a nice moment from visiting Barcelona. They can learn about animals and their environment.
Tibidabo Theme Park
In my opinion, Tibidabo is the best location to take pictures from Barcelona´s skyline and is also a place for the entire family. It has an amusement park and also a church with an amazing overlook. There are restaurants and small places where you can buy fast food. The staff there organizes activities for kids and is really fun. You can get there, by public transportation, the funicular ride is quite a thing, or if you rent a car.
What is this place? Cosmocaixa is a huge space for Science and nature, oriented mostly towards kids. From the list, this is my favorite. It has dinosaurs, scientific experiments, and even a flooded wood, with big animals (which I don´t know their species). It´s really big, the kids have a blast there. It´s really entertained and you can spend the whole day. It´s really cool!!!!
Montjuic is not a particular place, is an area that contains a lot of places that you can visit. Some places are better for kids than others, but anything you choose will be a magnificent choice, because of the new experience. All big spaces and mostly outdoor, not only for kids but also to practice sports, such as skate or riding bikes.
In this “complex” (the way I like to call it), you can find all these places that I´ll mention right away:
- MNAC: This is the National Museum of Contemporary Art of Catalonia (also the one from the picture). They lighten up the Magic Fountain of Montjuic at night and are a wonderful spectacle of water and lights.
- Olimpic Stadium and the Calatrava Tower (also Telefonica Tower) Built in the Olimpic ring. (this tower is beautiful)
- Barcelona Botanic Garden
- El Poble Espanyol: This means The Spanish Town, is a small representation of culture and architecture from Spain, normally during the summer there are a lot of activities like theatre, music, and food combined with the place it´s pretty awesome.
- Miró Foundation: This is also a magnificent building to visit.
- Caixa Forum: This place used to be a Factory but now is like a museum with a lot of cultural spaces.
- Montjuic Teleferic (Cable car): The views are amazing and the ride is nice! The kids enjoy this experience a lot! To get to the top is a particular ride because you take the funicular from Paral-el Station and after you leave the building and go upstairs and take the Teleferic (this ride in the teleferic is not included in the normal ticket from public transportation, the funicular is) The teleferic ride is a must! I loved it!
- Montjuic Castle: You can get there by bus or by teleferic. The views are amazing, it’s also a wide space where kids can run, play and have fun. There is also a restaurant inside the Castle.

I hope you and your kids enjoy the visit to Barcelona and the different things it has to offer!
