Specialty Museum Museum
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.  more »

  • Interesting exhibition about money ;-)
  • 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!
  • Magnificent Museum. Surprisingly, so modern form that presented the Valencian traditions. Essential if you want to know the Valencian culture. I've seen an exhibition of superb clothing.

  • I'm Valencia, and it had never been. It is advisable, to know more about the way of life and customs of Valencian. Very interesting, recalling objects from our childhood. The guides are very friendly and attentive.

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.
