Museu Valencia d'Etnologia, Valencia

(3.7/5 based on 20+ reviews on the web)
The Valencian Museum of Ethnology was created in 1982. The museum exists to both stimulate research and engage in public education in the fields of ethnology and anthropology; it more specifically intends to make people aware on the cultural diversity of the Region of Valencia, focussing on traditional Valencian culture and its development towards an industrialised society; it shows this as an aspect of the overall field of culture derived from the Mediterranean.This centre is run by the Diputació de València and has its site in la Beneficència Cultural Centre in the town of València.ActivitiesThe Museum has three permanent exhibits: La ciutat viscuda. Ciutats valencianes en trànsit, 1800-1940 (The lived town. Valencian towns in transition, 1800–1940), Horta i marjal (Market gardens and marshes) and Secà i muntanya (Drylands and mountains), which deal respectively with the urbanisation, market gardens and marshes, and drylands and mountains in the Valencian territory; there are also temporary exhibitions and educational workshops are also organised. It carries out a research activity that develops different projects and awards the Bernat Capó prize for disseminating popular culture.

  • The ethnologic museum has many modern display methods to show how people in the Valencian country are living, both in the city and in the rural side. We really enjoyed it. 
  • Impressed Museum modern art gallery. Indiscriminate jumble of antiques, monitors and futuristichnyh installations. Not signed almost anything (even in Spanish).

  • The people who do not learn from history is doomed to repeat it. Cicero. Great Setup, very accomplished, aprehensible and information-packed presentation. Free Saturdays and Sundays.

  • Interesting exposition, some activities for kids, nice yard inside, free wi-fi!
  • Hidden pearl: hard to find the entrance. Once inside it's lovely, interesting expositions that tell the story in an interactive way. Nice shop as well!
  • Exhibition corresponds to the modern notion of Museum Affairs. Lots of interactive and multimedia exhibits. No audio guide in Russian. Walked with 7letnim child-he was also interesting.

  • Excellent location for a museum that opens the doors to our origins and at the same time to our history. They promptly scheduled educational leisure activities for the whole family.

  • The truth is that surprised me this Museum, since it was not on our agenda of travel, and we found it by chance walking out of the Botanic. If you like history, anthropology and Ethnology, this is definitely a museum thing to visit.
