  • Huge disappointment for this Museum from which we were expecting very much. Only suitable, or nearly so, to families with small children, proposes experiments ill-suited for older kids or adults. Many experiments are broken or in reconstruction. Really money down the drain.

  • The rating 5 out of 5 is mainly due to the extraordinary nature of the buildings. The contents of the Museum, in our opinion, not worth except, perhaps, for Foucault's pendulum. The buildings and their location are astounding. I luved it.

  • Poor! in my opinion, money down the drain, full of "experiments" to do but broken because children (rude) destroy them. Discouraged.

  • Sorry but this is not like a typical Since Museum. If you have earlier visited similar one in London, than this is becoming disappointment.... For us not to worth of money. Just a building with some very simple stuffs. No need to go in and spend valuable time.
  • A good science museum located in the fantastic City of Arts and Science. There is a lot to see but unfortunately the interactive element is predominantly suited for young children - a lot of bells and whistles with little substance. Still it's well worth a visit especially if you get a joint ticket with the aquarium.
  • A must see when you’re in València. Even if you don’t want to visit the museum inside you absolutely want to visit this place outside. It’s truly impressive! If you take the hop-on hop-off bus, it stops just in front of the entrance!
  • Fantastic place for a visit. The futuristic landscape makes the exterior look like it is something from a different planet. Inside you can walk around learning about heaps of new things. Only wish the electricity displays had English text as well as Spanish like the other exhibits.
  • Interactive. Interesting experiments. Some of experiments in reparation. Extraordinary architecture! Facilities Ok.

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.
