  • Beautiful building. Not really my thing but husband enjoyed it. Nice bar. 3 euro entrance, very good value.
  • Museum is quite big and has many exhibits. One of the best parts of the exhibition is its photo collection, which is available to watch on one of many interactive boards. However, english description can be found in only one or two rooms. Moreover some of the protectors where not set properly during our visit. With student discount one ticket costs 1.50€.
  • A good museum with lots of stuff. Not everything has any English description but the special exhibition does. Interesting exhibits and lots of galleries to explore.
  • Great place, very intresting exhibition. And I like the order which place is organized. But no info in Englis, only Spanish. So sad ((
  • A really excellent museum with extensive permanent collection and, when I visited, a stunning and massive temporary exhibition about ancient civilisations in what is now Iran. Fascinating and well curated. Interpretation is in Spanish and Valencian for permanent exhibition and for temporary show in English too. Well worth a 2-3 hour visit.
