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.

For the visitor who has missed the March festival, this is a great way to see exactly what it is that this community spends all year fund raising for, then painstakingly creates and then burns to the ground amid the loud banks of thousands of fire crackers. Sundays admission is free. I nicely organized museum lets visitors see the ninots... More

This museum is 1 of the most whimsical museums I have ever been to. I visited the museum during fallas week & admission is free during this time. Although there is no English explanation, the ninots speak a thousand words. The ninots of falleros, mythical creatures, common Valencian folks depict life in valencia throughout the ages & the Valencian satirical... More

While the figures are too small and not burning, this does a great job of showing the pride and passion that goes into making the figures each year that will be burned in the festival. Worth a look.

It was a shame there were no English write ups and we weren't aware of any English guides. Therefore must learn more Spanish! It is a lovely museum and the detail of the exhibits is amazing. Very interesting to see how this tradition has developed over so many years, the posters were also good. Definitely missing a marketing opportunity as... More
