This little gem of a museum is located not far from the quad of buildings housing theCiudad de las Artes y las ciencias designed by architects Santiago Calatrava and Felix Candela. In a stark contrast, the Museo Fallas in Valencia is housed in an older, nondescript building which makes it a little more difficult to find. In this museum we... More

Spent half an hour here having a look around. Just a quirky place with some great artistic works. sadly there were no English explanations as to what the pieces represent but it was nice to look at.

This place is quiet and has no crowds (only one other couple there) when we visited. The entry was 2 euro and there are two floors of Fallas exhibitions. I think it is worth the money (since it's so cheap), as the exhibitions are pretty good. Reception were very friendly and you get a small brochure which is available in... More

We were taken to this museum by our tour director. You see a short movie about the history and then wander through so many rooms of the annual winners of the Faller contests held on March 19th of each year. These are man made satyrical, political or historical sculptures. Many communities submit their sculpture and the winner is saved from... More

My wife and I visited this museum on our Spain trip and wished we could have spent longer there because there was so much to see. But the tour bus stop was just to short. It is very close to the Futuristic Science center which looked like an Martian landing strip with all the beautiful, futuristic buildings. Spain is a... More

Our super history buff tour guide from Valencia Explorers (Miguel) took us here, and it was really cool. Most natives don't even know about this museum. He explained the Fallas Festival and showed us the floats, leaving us feeling much more cultured than we were before we walked in.

"Fallas are burnt at midnight on March 19th" according to Wikipedia. This is an annual tradition in Valencia. "Fallas refers to both the celebration and the monuments created during the celebration." At the end of the celebration only one minot (fanciful figure) is voted to be kept for the museum. It is worth a trip to this museum to see... More

GO HERE, to be exposed to part of Valencian culture you may not have known about. You can be dropped nearby with the valencia b tour bus (hop on hop off)

This is a brilliant museum which traces the history of the fallas back to it's beginnings with ninots from one main and one juvenile falla from each year. There is a very good audio visual presentation which explains the history of the fallas. The ninots are a small section taken from one of the huge fallas and must be seen... More

We really enjoyed visiting this museum, it's a little old-fashioned, but that adds to its charm. The ninots (figures) that have been spared the flames are quite impressive but for me it was the posters advertising the Fallas festival that were the most interesting. Each year a poster competition was held and each of the winning posters are displayed alongside... More
