What to see in A Coruña
The House of Man, as the Domus Museum is also known, is one of the most important science museums in A Coruña.
This building was designed by the Japanese architect Arata Isozaki and contains more than 200 interactive modules for fun and reflection on the characteristics of the human species, with the motto "Know yourself" as its banner.
It is the first interactive museum in the world dedicated in a monographic way to the human being in a premise in modules, which allow the senses to be deceived, as well as being surprising and instructive.
Its façade overlooking the sea has a bronze statue of Fernando Botero, "Roman Soldier". The outer wall, which faces the seafront, is covered with greenish slabs with a screen that hides the interior, symbolizing the human body covered with epidermis.
Among its rooms is a curious selection focused on human evolution with interactive expressions that allow one to learn about the characteristics that differentiate us as a species and our origins. Another of the games allows the visitor to experiment with their own shadow, understand their similarity with their parents, contemplate images of a real birth and measure the speed of a penalty shot as some of the proposals for the most curious.
The games of neurons as pieces of human intelligence are formed with a neural network made with neurons created by Galician schoolchildren. In this museum, activities are planned that put people's different abilities into practice, such as drawing a picture following some verbal instructions or testing one’s reflexes when one relaxes to win a game that measures brain activity.
