Barcelona is a city that appeals to all the senses and Big Fun Museum is one such attraction that reflects the city’s whimsical nature. Opened in 2018, Big Fun Museum is an interactive space housing a time-out zone and seven distinct museums dedicated to whacky themes, all under the same roof. Located on La Rambla, the main nerve of the city, the attraction brings together thematic rooms, topsy-turvy structures, 3D installations, ball pits, and countless other weird and wonderful curiosities. Read on to get a fuller picture of the attraction, its tickets, highlights, essential information, and more.
