It's cheap at 2 euros and the building is cool and modern. However, when we went half of the rooms were closed, and most of the exhibits did not inspire. It compares badly to many other such modern art museums that I have seen. There is an interesting room of propaganda poster art work and 50's era kitchen equipment which... More

If you like modern art then I think you find plenty in this gallery to linger over. I particularly like the works by Josep Renau on the American Way of Life. If I had been staying longer in Valencia I'd have visited the gallery again.

It is very nice to see new modern musum in the midlle of the old city. I saw few a artshows there and it is nice to see a modern place and new buildings where every thing around is old. I personally like old things so if you are in art mind it is very nice.

I spoke to an expert of modern art and according to this person the collection is one of the best in the world. To do on a rainy day.

Mention "modern art museum" to me and I usually need a little convincing. Not so for this place. The presentation, layout and atmosphere of the IVAM offers so much for the visitor. Currently I would recommend "Tristes Armas" the works by Josep Renau in particular are some of the best examples of photomontage I've seen. Bruce Nauman's work is interesting... More

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
