Museo de la Ciencia y el Agua
An interesting visit, especially if you're travelling with children: the planetarium and the collection of stars will win them over.
The best of the orientations.
The Museo de la Ciencia y el Agua is located next to the footbridge named the Pasarela del Malecón which is a construction by a Madrilenian architect named Manterola, and joins the district of Carmen to the city centre. This museum opened by taking advantage of the old reservoirs that supplied the entire city, but this wasn't the only reason. These reservoirs were actually positioned here during the post-war years and their position was decided by taking their astronomical orientation into account. In fact, as a matter of interest, you should know that the architectural projection of this building coincides with the north/south and east/west parallels, and this is the reason why this museum also houses the planetarium. Although it's true that this museum doesn't have as much to offer as other exhibitions in the city, and it's focused on a more children's age group, they show interesting processes of water treatment and supply, as well as a planetarium that shows more than 2,500 stars with their constellations and different sets of stars.
