The MUNCYT is present in several cities. The4th of May 2012, the Prince and Princess of Asturias opened the headquarters in A Coruña - at the Prisma de Cristal building. The building was designed by Victoria Acivro and Anxo Alonso. Outside, the construction is a glass cube; inside the surprise comes when the visitor realizes the two-in-one building. A large concrete tree houses the museum services (offices, library, events halls, catering hall, and workshops). The space in between the giant tree and the glass cube hosts the exhibition halls, in different heights and configurations. The unique feature consists in being able to behold every hall from different perspectives.
The museum present different exhibition spaces fitting large pieces, such as the front part of the Boeing 747 landing gear that brought the Guernica to Spain and donated from Iberia. Another large element is the assembly of the first particle accelerator designed and made by the Nuclear Energy Board in 1957.
