Fantastic Carvings

The Valencia "Fallas" is one of Spain's great festivals and this museum celebrates that. Free entry allows you to view two floors of very skilled and generally amusing carvings.

The fallas are are spectacle like few I've ever seen. And once you've experienced them, it would really be a shame not to spend some time at the fallas museum featuring the winners from years past, an awesome display of human creativity, imagination and talent.

Free entry on Sat and Sunday. While away an hour looking at the models on view. I found the history of the posters the most interesting aspect. Shame not one bit of information in English, I would have liked to buy a replica poster but nothing on sale. On a cool day or finding yourself at a lose end, take... More

I looked at reviews before I went and the more negative ones seemed based on a lack of understanding of what the museum is. Let's start by saying if you do not know what Fallas is, don't bother. If you have been and/or have interest in the history of the festival, the museum is very interesting. We went at the... More

If you come to Valencia for Las Fallas, this museum is a perfect way to supplement the experience. This museum houses a ninot from each year's winning falla, and you'll also learn about the history, the traditions, and the artistic process. Located right accross the street from the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias, make sure to come on... More

This museum has photos, statues and posters of this celebration starting in the 19th century There are portraits of the queens, lists of the artists and winning fallas Once you have experienced this event, go to the museum to get some of the history. Nothing is in English but it didn't matter.

As a fallas lover this museum is great, both my son and I really like fallas, and as we lived in Valencia for 8 years we've experienced fallas a few times. If you never saw fallas it might be a bit hard to imagine what it's really like, but the entrance to this museum is cheap and more worth than... More

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.
