Museu de les Ciències Príncipe Felipe

Museu de les Ciències Príncipe Felipe (, Spanish: Museo de las Ciencias Príncipe Felipe, anglicised as "Príncipe (Prince) Felipe Science Museum") is an important visitor attraction in Valencia in Spain. It forms part of the City of Arts and Sciences. Its director is Spanish science writer and television personality, Manuel Toharia.

The building was designed by Santiago Calatrava and was built by a joint venture of Fomento de Construcciones y Contratas and Necso.[1] It opened on 13 November 2000.

The building is over 40,000 square meters in area and resembles the skeleton of a whale.
