We were waiting so we could check into our apartment so had 3 hours to kill. It cost 2 euros to get in, and they look after your bags which was a plus for nothing. The exhibits are interesting, we broke the visit up with a drink at the cafe which is not expensive. It was good, enjoyed it

Half of the exposition rooms were closed at the moment we visited this museum. We saw some interesting cubistic art of the 1940's, but for the rest it was heavy and monotonous. A couple of statements of the double moral of the American society (happy family versus fighting wars all over the world) are interesting, a whole basement full of... More

We were going to give this art gallery a miss but we met a lovely lady visitor at the superb Subirachs exhibition at the Centro del Carmen who told us about the sculptor Julio Gonzalez and the restaurant at the gallery. We enjoyed the exhibition but were disappointed that there was not a leaflet about it in English. Also there... More

We spent a few hours in this museum with an entrance fee of 2 euro on Wednesday. Sundays are free of charge. Many exhibition rooms were closed at that moment and the collection is mainly Spanish with Spanish/Valencianean explanation, not always breathtaking. The tempory exhibit "In transition" is interesting and brings in also foreign artists and different forms of art.... More

most exhibition areas are closed, but the galeria 6 (the entrance is on the outside! look for it) is well worth a visit. Old and contemporary photography, in an interresting setting.

IVAM always has some interesting special expositions and it is always eye opening to go there. It is a modern place which exhibits tradition as well as modern artists and trends.

The IVAM is a big museum of modern art. It features the art of Julio Gonzalez, an avant-garde Spanish artist. Julio Gonzalez lived between 1876 and 1942. He was a Catalan abstract and cubist artist. In the 1890s he met Pablo Picasso in Barcelona at the Els Cuatro Gats. In 1900 he moved to Paris and never returned to Spain.... More

Not really being into art, I found some of the installations in here fascinating. Yes there are dull bits but ignore them and focus on the rooms with great contemporary work. 2 euros is not much to pay and if you have a tourist card then its free - so its hard to be to critical even if you don't...
