The Science House Museum is located in the Peru Pavilion, a building owned by the Seville Town Council and temporarily given to the CSIC for the location of this dissemination centre. This is one of the historic buildings of the heritage complex inherited from the 1929 Ibero-American Exhibition, designed by Manuel Piqueras Cotolí.
The Science House Museum of Seville is an open space for the dissemination of science, educational and cultural leisure for all citizens. It belongs to the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (the Spanish National Research Council), and its contents are inspired by the experience, background and research quality of this institution. It also has the collaboration of the Ministry of Economy, Knowledge, Business and Universities of the Andalusian Government.
The Museum has permanent exhibitions that address some of the universal themes of Science, such as the great species that live in our seas, or the long journey of geological transformations that the Earth has undergone, especially the province of Seville. There is also another permanent facility, the Planetarium, which seeks to bring the fantastic world of heavenly bodies closer to all ages, from three-year-old children, through a wide range of projections. Each new school year, temporary exhibitions with relevant scientific topics, adapted to all educational levels, are inaugurated therein. Likewise, every weekend, families are the main characters in the House participating in workshops, demonstrations and guided visits that seek to bring science to society in an entertaining and fun way.
