  • Housed in a former water-reservoir (look et the vaulted brick columns and ceiling repeating itself) this excellent museum seems to have been sited at the wrong end of town, although it is a nice walk ...  more »
  • A hidden gem that relates the story of Valencia. Good fun, plan the visit with time because you might want to stay there to watch all the historic video clips.  more »

  • Hate to seem uncultured but it was terribly boring. Almost entirely consists of objects, from a given period, behind glass. There must've been about 10 different projector screens which displayed little dramatisations from actors in a range of languages. However, only 2 were working when I visited. The building itself is pretty, and the entry fee is cheap, only 5€ pp.
  • The idea of the museum (with short movies about city life in different historical periods) is very good, but most of projectors were out of order. Also only 1of 5 time machines available was working. A bit disappointing!
  • Museum interactive and fairly complete. The history of Valencia since its Foundation until the present day. It is true that lack some information of officials when entering the Museum, but if you have a little patience to settle, compensates for the visit.

  • A great unknown. Its an old cistern location is fantastic. Good content. It would be nice that you guide to the exit to visit cross cover, a few meters from there

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.
