L'Iber Museo de Los Soldaditos de Plomo, Valencia

4.6
#3 of 38 in Museums in Valencia
One man's obsessive toy collection eventually became L'Iber Museo de Los Soldaditos de Plomo, where over 85,000 tiny toy soldiers are arranged in elaborate displays. These figurines are not child's play, displayed in scenes recreating battles from the Napoleonic Wars, the procession of Corpus Christi, and the Battle of Almansa. The details in each miniature are such that even the fabric of the clothes seem to be blowing in the wind. Located next to the Cathedral of Valencia, the museum makes an attractive addition to the neighborhood’s romantic streets. L'Iber Museo de Los Soldaditos de Plomo is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Valencia Edition.

  • Very nice for lovers, lots of figurines from all periods, from dinusauri up to 1800 ... the best part is that relating to the Napoleonic wars, the battle of waterloo and austerlitz made very well.

  • The building is historical and miniatures are not only of soldiers, also of other subjects, adults and children who will not get bored can be. Beautifully recreated with taste and detail, full and curious. There are many rooms organized by topics. You'll amaze you when you explore it. They gave us a stool for your child. The limpisimos toilet. And both the Lord of the box office and the Lady inside the Museum were friendly. Being in the heart of Valencia, you can continue visiting the city or drink in the many restaurants and cafes around.

  • As a private initiative, a family of the city has been engaged to show history through scenes created with these little soldiers.

  • Was excited to see it and I have to say I love figurines almost as much as history, it's open only twice a week. I was not able to see it. When I will see it I will change ratting. 1 for organisation.
  • Boys only! Lots and lots of lead soldiers and historical characters on multitude of displays. Many as dioramas, especially battles. As expected, mainly Spanish. Entry very cheap, small shop with toys, models. Worth visit with older kids.
  • Best place ever minature battles and life scenes amazing amazing should be a top world destination
  • The biggest Toy Soldier and military miniatures museum in the world, and a cultural center for Valencia and Spain, incluiding its book presentations , historical conferences and literary writing workshop.

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.
