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 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.

  • The presentation is very attractive. It has various topics and is stimulating. Perhaps it could be bigger, it is relatively small.

  • The charitable Cultural Center, located not far from the historic centre of Valencia, you can visit two interesting museums of the city, the prehistory Museum in Valencia and the Valencia Museum of Ethnology. You can visit both with a single entry. Will communicate, among other. This historic building consists of plant low and apartments arranged around courtyards. (There are lifts). On the ground floor is the ticket office, shop, café, etc... In the Valencia Museum of Ethnology, shown through photographs, objects and re-creations of environments, as it was the way of life, habits and customs of Valencia over the years. The permanent exhibition of the Museum of Ethnology is located on the West side of the building. Two sections, the vivid city and garden and wetlands are located on the first floor. In the second floor is located, dryland and mountain. The tour of this museum is entertaining and enjoyable, when you end the visit stay wanting more... It's all very detailed and explained. A time after the visit to these two museums, you recommend give you a ride by the courtyard inside of the building, very nice, and in where is the Church Byzantine, in which is held concerts. Not to forget the camera, photographs can be made. Takes more time visiting the Museum of prehistory of Valencia, that the Museum of Ethnology of Valencia. The Museum of Ethnology is one of recommended museums to visit, along with the Museum of prehistory, in the beautiful city of Valencia. Dedicate to these museums part of a morning or afternoon. The entrance is joint with the prehistory Museum in Valencia, located in the same building, and is free on weekends.
