Fallas Museum, Valencia

4.4
#2 of 37 in Museums in Valencia
Experience a piece of Valencian culture at Fallas Museum, featuring life-size figurines made of cardboard, wood, and plaster. This art form originated with junk thrown out at the end of winter--the owners would dress it up and draw faces on it, and the humorous tradition caught on. The museum displays some of the best pieces, which date back as far as 1934. These days, the figures are brightly painted and resemble caricatures. They often portray political themes, or comment on trends, society, and sexuality. No guides or brochures are offered, but there is a video explaining the history of the figures.

  • This is a very well kept and organized overview of the fallas, housed in an old convent near the city of the Sciences It consists of self guided tour along all saved "ninots" that were "rescued" from the flames from the 1930's up until now. It is surprising to the see the amount of detail used in making the ninots and larger failures, even in the oldest ninots. The exhibition also shows all announcement posters and the portraits of the largest fallers This, together with information panels make it a must see if interested in the history of the fallas.
