The Eureka Hall contains the Marie Curie Plaza, the Acoustic Perception and the Dynamic Sculptures area. This interactive museum was inaugurated by Mayor Ramon Luis Rivera in 1988. It covers a massive 30,000 square meters of land.

Other noteworthy attractions in the museum include a Planetarium, a Tropical Butterfly house, the Observation Tower and the Astronomy Garden. You can also enjoy walks in the Botanical Garden and visit the Oil mill and Olive Grove. The two main buildings feature the latest facilities available. These are used to keep the permanent exhibitions in perfect condition while providing good facilities for visitors. The Parque de las Ciencias' main aim is to help visitors learn about and clearly understand a number of scientific and universal principles and phenomena. It also helps youngsters to enjoy science.

The other buildings on the grounds include the Mechanics Area and the Temporary Exhibition Pavilion. All news exhibits are based on technology and science and are immensely interesting. Each year the Temporary Exhibit changes as technology and science improve, providing the public with access to these new and exciting developments.
