CosmoCaixa Barcelona is the science museum of Barcelona and belongs to the “la Caixa” Foundation. It opened in 2004 after remodeling its predecessor, the Science Museum, which opened in 1981.
In 2006, the European Museum Forum awarded him the European Museum of the Year Award, an award that recognizes new museums each year that have made progress and innovations in the field of museums. In 2021, CosmoCaixa once again received the Kenneth Hudson Award at the European Museum of the Year Awards, given by the European Museum Forum, for its “ability to continually reinvent itself and challenge visitors to think and feel like a better world can be created collaboratively. ”
