  • I had no idea this attraction existed until I passed it on the open top bus tour. I went back a few days later and loved every minute of it. It's a 15 minute walk from the city centre or you can use t...  more »
  • This museum has a range of items from the distant past right up until recent times. It is impossible to look at everything, especially since there is a huge collection of guns from around the world. M...  more »

  • I've been to this Museum twice in the last 12 months and both times I and whoever I was with have been very impressed with amount of items being exhibited and the quality. The museum is free and no where near as publicised as it should be and for that reason there's usually only a handful of people inside. They have vehicles, cannons, a room full of 100+ guns (not all in glass cases) and lots of ammunition exhibits. I really can't recommend this place enough; for me it was far superior to the standard and quality of the expensive Arts & Sciences museum! There's not too much in English mind, but you don't need that to appreciate it.
  • Free, huge and interesting. The visit is worth. Especially if you like military history.

  • A good Museum of the military history with parts arms models in a very wide area very well organized and explained. That is all very old weaponry nothing's news

  • Surprised I've been of this visit, I figured that it would be so full and enjoyable, because it is not limited to weapons and uniforms of custom, (which also have them). It also makes a good historical review to the curious or large events, and teaches from the manufacture of certain weapons, to the sometimes curious utensils used for a time to refine the results. It has! Also free entry. I recommend

  • It has very good material and too much, but if the guided out it would be much more instructive than trying to read the welcome.

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.
