  • Yesterday Saturday afternoon visited this museum with guided tour, for our taste is poor and scarce, for the price of the tour. If you do it on your own is worse, that the only thing interesting are the explanations. On the top floor all you see is two floors of two rooms and a small part of a staircase, nothing more.

  • Valencia centuries it was a benchmark in e woven silks, together with Lion, all the Kings of Europe from 1650 vestían rich robes, made in a city, the Guild of Veulluters preserves books, drawings looms, stored in warehouses, this building was in ruins and in June of this year was inaugurated, although I think this would be in the market on your ideal website at least you can see what was valencia in the past, its history and the wealth that brought the silk industry, entry free, financed by the Foundation Hortensia blacksmiths, a mecenes of art which invests in the heritage of valencia, 15TH century building is worth seeing, mosaics, soils recovered, I recommend it, if valencia are to visit the Museum in the Centre Street Hospital.

  • 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

  • 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.
