    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).

    A building in old town and entry to popular neighborhood. visit the permanent halls gives idea of age, if you get any room special monographic, better, and don't miss the interior courtyard garden, with those tiles when she was hospicio-colegio children and watch those trees and their roots, the years that have.

  • 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 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.
  • 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

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.
