Fallas Museum, Valencia

(4.3/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 2euro admission is always a great start.Explains the Fallas festival and has the winning figures from each year.The best figure design is not burnt,all the other designs are,well worth a visit.  more »
  • I recommend a visit to the Museum mainly to people who have not seen the faults that are commemorated between 15 and 19 March. There are ninots endultados and you can have a small idea of are the Falla monuments as well as the Falla artists work. You have to buy entry

  • It is nice, although a bit brief and expensive, I think it is a good visit to understand this Valencian fiesta
