Museo de la Ciencia y el Cosmos

La Laguna

If you enjoy pushing buttons and musing on the forces of nature, you'll have fun at this museum, which introduces key scientific concepts in an engaging and thought-provoking way. Located about 1.5km south of Plaza Adelantado and easily accessible by the tram to Santa Cruz (which stops right outside), it also has a planetario (planetarium), so you can stargaze during the day.
