Parco de la Ciutadella isn't far from the museum and has tons of things to see, including two greenhouses that were built for the Universal Exposition and especially the extravagant Castle of the Three Dragons, a modernist building that was originally built to be a cafe-restaurant and is now the current home of the Zoological Museum.

 

FUN FACT: Ciutadella Park also has a zoo with 7,000 animals from 400 different species. The entrance of the zoo is marked by a sculptural group of deer depicted while jumping. Does it look familiar? Of course it does, because it's a tribute to Walt Disney!
