Museu de Ciències Naturals de Barcelona

The museum features the permanent exhibition Planet Life, which traces the history of the evolution of life and the Earth, from its origins, and shows us what it is like today. Using the latest display technologies, the museum showcases part of the zoology, geology and botany collections that the Museu de Ciències Naturals de Barcelona has preserved throughout its 132-year history. In addition to this valuable heritage, the museum will be a major facility covering a surface area of 9,000 m2 with space for temporary exhibitions and educational and informative activities. It will also have a mediatheque, restaurant and shop.

The exhibition Planet Life, which takes up 3,000 m2 of the museum, is organised in three sections. The first, entitled Gaia's Biography, will give us an insight into the history of life on our planet from the origins of the Earth to the present day. The second, Present-day Earth, shows us our planet as it is today through the vibrant and diverse world of fossils, animals, plants, rocks, minerals, fungi, microbes and seaweed. The third, Laboratories of Life, complements the visit by looking at various topics associated with nature and its relationship with human beings.
