  • I went with my mates (all 18). They understood nothing as it's all on Spanish and so only I could read anything. It's a bit repetitive, in terms of seeing bits of rock and little spearheads. Don't go if you're foreign, I'm sure it'd be a very different experience for a spaniard.
  • If you have kids, then it is ok. They have lots of activities for them. But for adults, this museum is not worth the detour... Visit the ivam or the museum del Carmen close to it, they are much much better.
  • Unfortunately nothing in this museum is written in English so if you don't speak Spanish you're pretty much clueless about the items they are displaying there. Other than that is not bad.
  • I was surprised by the modern exhibition in this museum, which isn't really advertised anywhere to tourists. Both here and in Barcelona I was practically the only visitor, but both museums have information on excavations on Paleolithic sites in the region as recent as 2010 with explanations that even focus on kids. Amazing examples of rock art, incised stones with images of extinct animals and many pictures and references is just the start of a long journey in Valencian history, that ends when the classic protohistory starts. But this region was contested in Punic wars and it provides an unique window into the Iberic culture that proceded the classical Roman empire. I think your trip to Valencia isn't complete without a visit into its long history and this museum is the best place to experience it. Sagunto is a good 2nd option
