The steam train, cared for and assembled by the Center for Studies – Steam Modeling, runs on steam and imitates the trains of the time that traveled through the European mountains. Yes, all to scale.


become a skateboarder

The next Tony Hawk, the most famous skateboarder of all time, could be among us. Or at least he thinks so Skate Now (Carretera de Mataró, 2-20, Badalona), a square and academy dedicated to this sport that seeks to train so that everyone knows how to function on wheels. On June 27 they return their summer fieldswho spend hot days skating, going to the beach and all kinds of sports activities.


movie plans

Fill the month with activities to instill the love of the seventh art in the little ones. For example, with ‘FilmoXica‘, of the film library (Salvador Seguí, 1-9), which is currently showing a cycle about fantastic creatures, such as dinosaurs or even the adorable and furry Totoro. EITHER ‘little moviegoers‘, of CaixaForum (Francesc Ferrer i Guàrdia, 6-8), which has a cycle dedicated to children’s films starring girls, to give references to the youngest at home.


What’s the trick?

Here, if you don’t break, they break you. Welcome to Magic Familya magical show Eixample Theater (Aragó, 140) that uses humor and magic to entertain children and parents alike. The ‘show’, moreover, is full of surprises that require the participation of the public, so it is not suitable for the timid. Released a few weeks ago, it will be on the bill until the end of July.


Indiana Jones to the modernist

art is a science

the family cycle C1ENCI4RT, organized by the Barcelona City Council, comes to an end. Their activities aim to teach the basics of science by applying them to everyday situations and thus understand that science is something of everyday life, and not a complicated discipline far removed from reality, and they have already dealt with topics such as music, cooking or art.

theatrical classics
