El Museo de las Ciencias Príncipe Felipe

Av. Autopista del Saler 1,3,5,7
46013 Valencia

El Museu de les Ciències Príncipe Felipe (Valencian; Spanish: El Museo de las Ciencias Príncipe Felipe) is an important visitor attraction in Valencia forming part of the magnificent City of Arts and Sciences. The building designed by Santiago Calatrava, was built by a joint venture of Fomento de Construcciones y Contratas and Necso, and opened on 13 November 2000. The building is over 40,000 square metres in area and resembles the skeleton of a whale.

This is one of the few museums where it's frowned upon if you don't touch everything in sight! Combining science with the latest in technology, everything in the museum is graphically displayed: recent exhibitions have included subjects as diverse as spy science, climate change, the human body and biometrics, interactive exhibits, various activities, experiments, and a constantly changing program of events.
