Before arriving, it is always preferable to check the latest news on the official fcbarcelona website. The Stadium Tour, for example, is not available on the days in which the Spanish Liga and Champions League matches are played (in the latter case also the day before).
If a ticket has been purchased for one of these dates, it will be possible to take the Barcelona FC stadium tour, the day before or the day after the closing date.
Except for particular days, the Tour and the Museum are available at the following times:
From the Port (Passeig de Joan de Borbó, 88) with the Telefèric you reach the splendid Montjuc hill (Avenida de Miramar).
The cable car is already an extraordinary attraction in itself and offers a truly spectacular view over the whole of Barcelona.
Beautiful especially at sunset, with the play of lights and colors over the city!
There are 3 stations, including the Castle, which offers a beautiful view of the harbor from the widening.
Each cabin holds up to 8 seats, which is why you can use it for the whole family. Furthermore, it is accessible for personnel with reduced mobility.
The ticket costs €14.20 for adults and €10.20 for children from 5 years old, and can be purchased directly from this link. Children under the age of 4 enter for free.
Open from Monday to Sunday at the following times:
Between the Castle, the Mirador, the parks and gardens you can spend a day in total relaxation
The Castle is the terminus of bus 150 with which you can reach the interesting Poble Espanyol, a place that children in Barcelona will certainly appreciate.
Two figures of Gigantes await you at the entrance. Inside, however, you can admire a real open-air museum.
It is a reconstruction of the main Spanish architectural styles; in Poble Espanyol there are 117 buildings, streets and squares, strictly pedestrianized, a real village.
You will also find numerous clubs, tapas bars and restaurants where you can eat and have fun until late in the evening. In fact, there is no shortage of events and concerts scheduled throughout the year.
Open every day from 09:00 until late evening (Friday and Saturday until 03:00 at night). In winter the closing is anticipated to midnight.
The ticket is included with the Family Card. Alternatively, adults pay €12.20 and children €9.
When you arrive in the splendid Plaça de Espana, your gaze is lost among beautiful works of art; not far away you will find the Palau Nacional, the museum of Catalan art. Visiting this fantastic square is recommended at sunset or in the evening, when it is possible to admire the spectacular Font Màgica, that is the magical fountain of Montjuic: colored lights to the rhythm of music make it one of the most popular attractions for adults and children in Barcelona.
Street performers will cheer you up before the show starts with dances and acrobatics.

Parks and green areas are a constant in Barcelona. Even in the center you will find many. The inhabitants come to play sports and take walks away from the hustle and bustle.
Parc Joan Mirò is really big and pretty. It is located less than 10 minutes’ walk from Placa de Espanya and can be seen from afar for the presence of the colorful sculpture “Dona i Ocell“, 21 meters high, by the surrealist artist Joan Mirò.
This is also the favorite park of the Catalans to walk their dogs: you will find so many.
Your little friends can have fun with them and in the playground set up in the park.
The Ciutadella Park is one of the most beautiful green lungs in the city, with lots of greenery, a monumental fountain and an interesting zoo.
It is perfectly accessible by public transport and on foot, with a 10-minute walk from Barceloneta.
With the metro and lines R1, R3, R4 and R7, you can get off at the Arc de Triomf stop.
After passing the Arch (with the inevitable customary photos) and the long walk, with a small detour to Passeig de Pujades, you arrive at the Chocolate Museum (Carrer del Comerç, 36).
Chocolate, what a passion… for adults and children in Barcelona.
At the entrance to the Museum, each visitor will receive a bar of dark chocolate (really delicious) with a QR code that will be used to access the structure.
We visited the Museum because it was included in the BCN Family Card but the children were pleasantly surprised to admire the works of art made with chocolate. Star Wars, Disney, the inevitable Messi …
A small and fun museum, open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am to 7pm, Sunday from 10am to 1pm. Closed on Mondays.
The ticket costs €6 per person (free for children under 7).
The Barcelona Zoo is housed within the Ciutadella Park. It is certainly not an unmissable appointment during your vacation. In addition to the many animal species, the children appreciated… the availability of peacocks to be admired in all their splendor! It doesn’t happen every day.
Open every day from 10am to 7pm.
The adult ticket, in my opinion excessive for the proposal, is €21.40 for adults and €12.95 for children from 3 to 12 years. FREE with Barcelona Card Family.
Park Guell is a public park with an open-air museum inside, open to visitors all year round, as well as one of the symbolic monuments of the city.
It is one of the most visited places in the region, which is why you cannot miss to admire it with your children in Barcelona. More info from this link.
Tibidabo, on the other hand, is even more out of the way from the center, reachable in about an hour. From Plaça de Catalunya we used train, funicular and bus!
You should definitely visit it if you have time available during your holiday with children in Barcelona. Especially for the view.
A holiday with children in Barcelona cannot be complete without visiting PortAventura, a spectacular park just over 100 kilometers south of the city. One of the most beautiful theme parks in Europe. More info from here.
