  • With discount "students" we paid only 1 euro each for a visit to 1h20minuti about ... The location doesn't help visits in fact we were the only ones to visit it at 13, better that way! The exhibition is beautiful and displays artifacts and finds from the stone age until the Roman period. Very interesting and Nice, inconceivable the nominal price of no publicity of the Museum!

  • Ideal for those who want to fill his last days with a visit to a museum. All very interesting to see, but after several rooms we had enough pieces stone seen. Also the information in the halls and in the objects is given only in Spanish and another language. Too bad for those who do not understand Spanish (like myself) and then leaves paper (available in every room) to get an idea about the themes.

  • Valencia... is not only beaches, having them beautiful, is a city that boasts several museums, that are worth to be visited, one of these museums is the prehistory Museum in Valencia, located not far from the historic centre of the city, and located in the building of the Centre Cultural La Beneficiencia. In this same historical building is located also the Museum of Ethnology of Valencia, very interesting also for visit. These two museums are visited with a single entry. The prehistory Museum in Valencia has several plants, (there are elevators to access the highest), ground floor and two floors arranged around different courtyards. In the plant low is are the box office, (circular), the cafeteria, the shop, them rooms of exhibitions temporary, etc... On the first floor are the permanent rooms dedicated to the Palaeolithic, Neolithic and bronze age. In the second floor, the rooms permanent dedicated to the culture Ibérica, and to the world Roman. It's all very well presented, well detailed and decorated with explanatory panels. It is a good Museum, it has plenty of material. Has with materials obtained in different excavations of the region, in sites archaeological as the Cova black of Xàtiva, the Tossal of Sant Miquel of Llíria, the Bastida of les Alcusses of Moixent or the Cova of the Parpalló of Gandia. So good and extensive material, this prehistory Museum in Valencia, becomes one of the most important museums in Spain. It is one of the museums, which you should visit on a trip to the beautiful and warm city of Valencia. Devote part of a morning or afternoon, to be able to scroll through everything in detail. This museum is communicates with the Museum of Ethnology of Valencia, that not must stop of visit. After the visit to both museums, I recommend go to the inner courtyard of the building and give you a tour of the. Do not forget the camera of photos, is can make photographs. The entry on weekends is free. Very recommendable.

  • 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
