Out of the blistering heat of the Valencian streets IVAM's doors open and swallow you up into a dark, shady and cool environment. The stairs lead to galleries above and the lower floor houses two further galleries one of which was solely showing work of Julio González considered, as the programme suggests, to be one of the leading sculptors of...

I can't recommend it to non-Spanish visitors, unfortunately all the signing and communication is in Spanish without translations. Employees also don't speak other languages. Strange, because the museum is quite big with a nice diversity of paintings, sculptures, graphic work, installations and movies. Only two (as we came, 15th of August) exhibitions had English translations.

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

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
