For 2 euros each including a small guide we had a very interesting morning walking around the Fallas museum. From every year you could see how the art and the history of spain was changing. There are some amusing statues, some topical , nautical too, but all standing with a sense of pride that defines Spain. Please go. Cheaper than... More

This wonderful little museum is very close to the futuristic Science complex and to me, it is far more interesting! Showing the tradition of the unique Fallas festival from before, during and after the Franco regime, it is a symbol of triumph over adversity, creative genius, humour( some of it incomprehensible to non-Spanish or indeed non-local people) The explanations are...

We did not know anything about this museum, but ended up spending two hours here. The display was hilarious, amazing artwork. The entrance fee was extremely reasonable. Highly recommended. If you have children, they will enjoy them as well. And if you can get a guide, you'll be able to learn more about the story behind each figure.

There is a long history associated with this museum but it is hard to understand unless you can read the Spanish descriptions. There are no translations. It goes through the "winners" year by year which, honestly, gets a bit monotonous. The people are proud of this history and event which is great, but there are better things to spend time... More

Very beautiful Museum showing Fallas festival in a great way, however, Fallas is a must and you have to enjoy it on streets. Music, colours, fireworks, dressed Falleras and Fallas Monuments... Just AMAZING!

If you want to learn and enjoy authentic culture of the Valencian this is a place to experienced the Fallas, that is the most important festival the local celebrate with displays of human size & larger paper mâché figurines...real piece of work. The information of dates & author is in Spanish but you really can walk two floors of displays... More

Great to see replicas of past Fallas Ninots and artwork, not particularly informative if you don't speak Spanish however. No translations of exhibits provides.

Nice to see how they made naturally looking figures, just to set them on fire eeach year. The best ones are spared from cremation and kept in this museum.
