  • We visited this museum the most unknown completely free, which surprised me given the great care that I noticed. The Museum presents a lot of artifacts and it is very interesting. I highly recommend it.

  • The Museum is full of objects which, due to their importance would merit a long time to watch them; would go away maybe a morning full, but it is necessary, in my opinion, synthesize long visit to major exhibits. The visit also extends to the Museum of Ethnology, also interesting. I also recommend to have lunch in the restaurant on the Right inside of the same Museum, the modest price of 8 euros per person (very good).

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.
