Results and analysis of visitors, evaluation and exhibitions of CosmoCaixa Barcelona in 2016

CosmoCaixa is a leading centre in Barcelona in the promotion of science and receives thousands of visits every year, from people who love science but also from others of all ages who are merely curious.

The range of our programme is extended and diversified each year to raise awareness among the general public of the mysteries and marvels of science.

CosmoCaixa had very positive results in 2016 and we'd like to share them here with all those who, thanks to their participation, encourage us to go on making this centre increasingly important, magical and amazing.

After 25 years of history, the increase in visitor numbers, the need to extend the activities offered and to adapt to new technologies meant that, in 2004, the CosmoCaixa Barcelona was born, the new Science Museum of the "la Caixa" Foundation, a venue dedicated to raising awareness of scientific knowledge and to stimulating an interest in science by directly involving visitors. A meeting point between science and society.

Every year CosmoCaixa programmes an extension range of activities for all kinds of people so that everyone can find something they're interested in, such as exhibitions to visit alone, in a group or with your family; the new 3D Planetarium; family activities to introduce children to the world of science; activities to raise awareness of science such as courses, talks and seminars explaining the latest scientific advances; activities for the elderly where they can talk with experts about subjects they're particularly interested in over a cup of coffee; and, of course, activities for schoolchildren with a wide range of workshops, itineraries and talks that support the school curriculum for all levels and ages.

We'd like to thank all of you who have visited us and have taken part in our activities, helping CosmoCaixa to achieve its goals year after year. Thanks also to those of you who have taken part in our surveys; your answers have provided us with vital information to improve our work and services.

Thanks also to those who, day after day, make CosmoCaixa a state of the art centre!
