We went to the museum expecting to take about 20 minutes to go round it and ended up spending 2 hours there. It was fascinating, the miniatures were mainly soldiers telling the history of Spain, but also included Egyptian, Roman, French fashion design and many other things. The Corpus Christi room was very interesting. The lady in attendance in the... More

Classic tin soldiers in a 19th environment, with gothic patio, which are just delightful for the expert, and lovely for children aged 4-104! If you happen to be on a school trip to the city they also offer activities for the kids, so they have a better grasp of real battles and history. Bring your magnifying glass and enjoy the... More

We visited this museum twice. It may be small but there is lots in it. What's more the exhibits of battles are quite large and detailed. For example, there is a panoramic reproduction of the 1707 Battle of Almansa with 10,000 figures in a space of approximately 9 feet by 16 feet. You see the horses, the soldiers, people fleeing,...

Came across this museum while strolling through Valencia City Centre, and had a wander through. Definitely for those who like figurines, collectables. Or just somebody who is intruiged by history. So many historical battles recreated in stunning formats. Alot of time and effort went into this place and is worth the visit. The guide who was inside the building was... More

If you ever played with toy soldiers when you were a kid, you will enjoy an hour in this place. Entire historical battle scenes have been recreated using little lead soldiers. If that sounds boring, skip it, there's plenty more to see in Valencia.

It's a very interesting museum. I've never seen anything like it before. It's not just the small figures, but the incredible way that they are arranged. They show various historic scenes, some of which are really impressive.

I went to this museum after reading the rave reviews here on TA, and thoroughly enjoyed it. You have to be something of a history buff, I think, to get the most out of it. You move through a series of rooms, and see different episodes from (mostly) western history in the form of dioramas featuring exquisitely painted toy soldiers... More

We noticed the good Tripadvisor reviews this museum was receiving and decided to visit. How glad we were of this decision. The collection of lead figures - mainly military - is housed in a beautiful mansion with a glorious courtyard at its entrance. The collection depicts details of great battles as well as information about military ranks. This may seem... More
