Quite a cool place, which seems smaller than it is. Different rooms with huge TV screens, in different languages (Spanish included), experiencing in a tactile way and discovering countless things about science, boats, navigators, history and much more. You will also find spaces recreated from ship interiors that put you directly into reality and the day-to-day life of what it was like to live in them during long voyages. And above all it has a very attractive final part, where you go by boat and they explain the history of the discoveries to you through different themed rooms, with incredible settings, music in a huge space. Of course, at the end we have the store, very well organized where you end up succumbing.

Great family visit. I recommend taking the audio guide on site (2€ per person), to make the visit even more dynamic. No need for headphones. The children loved taking themselves for foams in the interior of the reconstructed boat. Nice also the boat trip in the different countries! It's still one of my kids' favorite moments.
