Though you can get to known Barcelona’s favorite son, Antoni Gaudí, by seeing the sights, you’ll really get a better understanding of the artist by exploring his fantastical world at the Gaudí Experience. This is where you can learn more about the architect via large interactive boards (available in nine languages, no less), and especially by watching the 4D movie, which is what really makes the experience a proper experience.
An experience, indeed, as the movie involves more than just pretty visuals but also moving seats and even other sensory details such as mist. During the adventure, you’ll travel the streets of old Barcelona, exploring Gaudí’s creations and his dreamlike world. Narration-free, it’s an especially ideal way for kids to get a more entertaining look at one of the most intriguing sides of Barcelona.
The Gaudí Experience is located steps away from Parc Güell, making it an ideal stop while you’re in this part of town. Though not super close to the tourist center (at least not by foot), you can arrive here easily by Metro (stop: Lesseps) or even more easily via the hop-on hop-off bus tour by getting off at Parc Güell. The last 4D show beings a half an hour prior to closing.
