  • While they spent 20 minutes over the expected 50 I leave me feeling that went very fast, while there is no excessive things to see. Perhaps influenced by the guide that we had. The Museum has interesting details and worth watching it. A great work of restoration. Still I believe that it could have come out happier or had some very high expectations

  • The inhabitants of Valencia long we hoped this reconstruction, since it was worth seeing the building deteriorated long. I must say that it has been very well both the building itself and the annex to the courtyard where ancient Silk-making machines have been placed. We went to the guided tour "Valencia" which costs €7. The normal visit without guide think are € 5. The contents are pretty well explained in displays and murals. The guided tour, although it was good, neither provides much additional information that appears on the walls, mostly to anecdotal level, which is what most stays in the memory. Visit with guide or no guide is highly recommended.

  • Incredibly, this Gothic building was dilapidated for decades. It lies on the busy street of the Hospital and is an essential part of the history of what was for centuries the silk city. Valencia, pioneer and creator, was industry prematurely due to the agrarian cultivation of mulberry, tree which the silkworm, the cultivation of the own worm, spinning of silk, fabrics, is fed to their trade... Until well into the 19TH, the silk industry declined. The silk market, Valencian clothing, the name of the District of velluters, or custom that still lingers among Valencian children raise silkworms have if origin in the industry that fed the city for about ten centuries. The fact that the Guild and school building has remained in oblivion so many years has harmed the memory of the city. Fortunately, a quick and careful rehabilitation of construction as well as its conversion into Museum and the excellent explanations of the guides help to recover an important sign of identity for the people of Valencia. Visit essential. And it is highly recommended to go with children.

  • Nice museum. Small, but well renovated, it was the traditional silk union and silk manufacturing school. The guided tour is definitely worth it!
  • This College and current Museum, is the headquarters of the Guild of Velluters (terciopeleros) and the silk manufacturers, is the oldest in Europe, founded in the year 1474, and edificandose in this place in 1492. En1686 King Carlos II grants to the Guild of Velluters, the title School of the greater art of silk. The silk trade was very important in the Valencia from the 15TH century to the extent that the building most emblematic of Valencia, La Lonja de los Mercaderes, also called the Lonja de la Seda. The choice of San Jerónimo as pattern recognition seems to be due to tradition, by which this Saint was the first Cardinal to introduce silk dress. The Guild of silk was born of the need to regulate the trade, prevent abuses and malpractices that may arise in the development of this activity. The Guild was in charge in addition to monitor the quality of the silk, controlling the number of looms and the craftsmanship of the trade. It has recently been restored by the hydrangea Herrero Foundation.
