Museu Blau origins 

The ‘Museu Blau‘ is Barcelona’s natural sciences museum, based in the Diagonal Mar area of the city, right next to the Forum. The ‘Museu Blau’ official title is the Museu de Ciències Naturals de Barcelona (Natural Science Museum of Barcelona) is an institution founded over 140 years ago whose natural heritage collections in the fields of mineralogy, petrology, palaeontology, zoology and botany comprise more than three million specimens.

It has one main exhibition called ‘Life Planet’ which looks at the planet’s physical and chemical environments and their relationship with humans. It is divided into two main sections, ‘Biography of the Earth‘ and ‘Earth Today‘. The former looks at the development of life and the interaction with the planet and the latter describes the present situation and the possible future.
