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.

  • Beautiful dolls here of the Fallas celebration. Life-size and very funny. Really just go, less than an hour you can spend there.

  • I was at the Museum that was not time of failure and I wanted to get an idea of what it means. Here are some of the indultadas fault for many years and the truth is that it helps to give you an idea of what they mean for Valencians. I subsequently had the opportunity to see live failures.
