I agree with others that the house is the best part of this museum but the ceramics are worth a look too. The house has amazing decoration inside and out all at a reasonable price

The palace interiors are carefully restored & ornate. I love the blue... More

I saw the facade of this building in previous visits to Valencia, this year I decide to pay a visit and found it beautiful my surprise was a stoning carriage from the XVIII century. Free entrance on Sat. evening and all Sunday with free guide visits. My guide Jesus was just perfect, very friendly and professional. You can take pictures... More

I had a few hours to fill in, so decided to visit the ceramics museum - and I am so pleased I did! Entry is free (or was when I was there on Friday). Downstairs is a beautiful old house, restored to look like a small palace, with plenty of multi-lingual information. It was truly spectacular, and better that some... More

The ceramics museum is located in the old house of the Marques de Dos Aguas and looks like a small version of a royal palace. It is definitely worth a visit, and if you are in Valencia on a Sunday, go then because like most Valencian museums it is free on Sundays.

The facade of this building screams for your attention. Alabaster baroque. It is as though a young girl was turned loose with whipped cream! Everything is decorated. Inside, however, the first floor is decorated with the furnishings original to the house. Murano glass chandeliers, Dresden and Meissen decorated chairs and settees, bedrooms with canopied beds and guilt edged wall panels,... More

Especially if you are interested in ceramic arts, this is one you want to see. The building in which the museum is housed also makes the trip worth it.

A wonderful range of pottery and porcelain on display with very helpful explanatory cards. Very striking building too. Staff a little too "officious" for my taste.

Although ceramics might sound boring to some tourists, this museum is so much more. Well preserved historic suites, interesting displays and don't miss the beautiful kitchen.

The main problems I have with this museum are the truly inadequate descriptions of the articles on display, a lack of informed staff to ask questions from, and the complete lack of context within which to understand the significance of individual pieces or the collection. As an absolute non-expert, I found that the very poor curation of the museum made... More
