Come to the city where birds swim under water. And you take a step and advance 10,000 years. It’s a city where you never grow and you always learn. And you can cross the Atlantic surrounded by sharks. In my city you can almost reach out and touch the stars. And you can go a walk under the sea. And find yourself in a wood. And dance with dolphins. Yes, this city exists.

We very interested to see what was available as from the outside it is magnificent sight. The money spent on the buildings is clear to see. On the downside half of the interaction inside weren't working.

We liked to visit all the three floors. All very well presented and organised, mainly oriented to education for the youth. There should be more Multilingual explanations about the scientific experiments.

Great architectural area I spent a lot of time here just looking at the buildings and gardens. Well worth the visit and there is also a nice shopping centre on the opposite side of the road.

Indeed great architectural area and nice to walk around. You can make a walk from the city or combine with a walk through the Turia park. I was a little disappointed by the science museum because of the lack of proper working showcases. My conclusion would be: magnificent from the outside, but a little lack of content inside. Do keep... More

Seeing this area was so bizarre for me. Since I've been in Italy, I have become used to its architecture. After visiting Spain and seeing Valencia, my mind was blown. The amazing modern architecture of this area in Valencia was such a breath of sweet air. I would highly recommend taking a stroll through here to admire the buildings and... More

Neat to walk around because the building just looks so cool, but the exhibits were pretty boring. It was a nice way to kill a few hours. I would say the most interesting thing was the live baby chicks hatching.

Futuristic, number 1 "must see" place, that separates Valencia from other cities in Spain. Huge and impressive.

We were planning on going to the Arts and Sciences complex after having done a morning walking tour of Valencia, but very glad we returned a second day as this place deserves adequate time for exploring. We walked from the Valencia Nord train station as it was a nice day; took about 25 minutes. The complex was nearly deserted; which... More

Put on your most crazy dress, apply bold make-up, get on your highest hills, designate a photographer and go there in a sunny day to get yourself the most fantastic pictures! Because this place is perfectly photogenic at every corner!

Cycle through the lovely Turia parc and sit and relax beside these marvellous buildings. Just to see them is already a joy.
