    Rain was forecast so we didn't have to curtail the teens' sunbathing to visit VLAM. So glad we went - each gallery was thought-provoking, inspirational, puzzling or challenging. Everything an art gall...  more »

    Today I decided to spend the morning visiting the new exhibition of the IVAM. I arrived at 10:30 and, along with others, I was waiting until the opening of the Museum at 11:00, hours that I consider very late, the truth. I visited three temporary exhibitions, including the birth of abstraction, which I liked and whose artists, most already knew. I've seen fantastic works such as the of my admired Eusebio Sempere. But that has most impacted me has been that of ANZO. Contemporary art, I like particularly, Op Art, Pop Art, kinetic art movements. I didn't know ANZO, Utiel Valencia, and I've been very, very impressed, wonderfully surprised by his work and his social critical and artistic quality. Today I really spent a wonderful morning at the IVAM. It has not always been so.

    The Museum has a very nice spaces, is a modern and input for students is a sympathetic 3 euro (you must have, however, ISIC, you will be charged twice as much). However, the US exhibition (July) too have not delivered. It seems that you will find one interesting in largest first gallery and in smaller, six other galleries are "less interesting" exposure. We recommend that you watch the program in advance on the website.

  • Only 6 euros? I was the first in line. OK, not really - there was a school group in front of me. I enjoyed looking at the very cool modern art here. I was able to go at my own pace and take pictures of everything that I enjoyed. There are 4 levels, so depending on your pace plan on staying at least an hour and a half. They also have free WiFi and plenty of helpful staff to answer your questions.
  • It's not bad at all. Very cheap to enter, I think I paid a euro. The first gallery is really cool and interesting. The rest of the gallery was a bit mundane, mainly photographs (I don't know how that's considered art). But for €1 I can't complain, they have free Wifi and some interesting artwork
  • Very nice little museum and only 2 euros entry fee. Especially the exhibition on Spanish comic book art was interesting. However there is very little information in English...
  • One of the best museums in Valencia. Though I am not a fan of modern art, this place is really beautiful. There is also a great cafeteria you can eat.
  • The show of the sculptor Julio Gonzales currently on display is excellent. We were alerted to it by a review in the Wall Street Journal. Lost in the City, a comprehensive exhibit that is a curatorial tour de force depicts cities from many points of view, lots of photography. Even WPA photos by Dorothea Lange and Walker Evans et all are projected in a continuous slide show. This is one exhibit with lots of captions in English. We are big time museum goers and this place is one of the best. We also had a delicious lunch in the small restaurant. Not surprisingly, there were few people visiting the museum. Unlike New York, where you have lots of competition for the viewing of art. Lost in the City belongs in MoMA or the Met. I could see myself going back more than once to take it all in.

Where to stay in Valencia

The Valencia city center is hugged by a river bed-turned park that leads down to the City of Arts and Sciences and harbor area. Stay along the river to be no more than a pleasant stroll away from some of the main neighborhoods and attractions. The popular El Carmen neighborhood, one of the oldest in the city, is known for its bohemian atmosphere and historical architecture, making it a popular area for daytime tourism and lively nightlife. For a selection of newer hotels and well-known shops, you can opt to stay in the city's commercial district of Colon Street, only a short walk from the old center and well-connected by the metro. For a laid-back, sun-filled retreat, El Cabanyal is a quiet residential neighborhood near the city's main beach.
