I enjoyed this Museum
Jul 2018 • Couples
Nice way to spend an hour or so... much to see. You have the grand staircase, a formal room with chandeliers, the Assembly room (which is a little difficult to find, follow signs to restrooms then look for staircase going up), the building's outside balcony (great for pictures), and a nice small interesting museum with city and religious relics. Last nice thing about it was free (surprised as other posts mentioned a nominal $2E entry fee).

Creative history museum

This museum is in a super interesting historical building. It covers two thousand years of history, with diorama videos depicting historical characters. Upon check-in, visitors are given a large book with supplemental information available in many different languages. The dioramas also offer multiple languages. At to euros per person, this is a fabulous experience.

A very interesting visit
Sep 2017 • Friends
I wouldn't say it's a must but if you have the time or are staying close to it (as I was) it's a nice quite short visit: the city town hall (ayuntamiento), with its balcony overlooking a nice square (plaza), and the museum, which contains objects and paintings related to different periods of the monarchy.

Good Museum to Visit
Oct 2014 • Couples
The Museo Historico Municipal is located in the Ayuntamiento Building. The museum has 46 engravings that show Visions of the City, dated to the end of the 18th century and reaching the middle of the 19th century. The Sala dels Furs show mural paintings that show the first kings, created by the artist Ramon Stolz. The Sala Foral shows paintings by Jose Vergara and has the most important symbols of the history of Valencia. There is a bust of Jaime I of Aragon, who conquered Valencia from the Moors.

Great little museum ... if you can find it!
Mar 2014 • Couples
To find it, go into the Town Hall down the vehicle entrance past the policemen, go up the marble staircase, turn left then right and into the unassuming door that has 'Museo' written on it in 1 inch high letters. Hard to see because the door is propped open! It's 2 euros to go in. Inside there are five rooms. There is not much signage and what there is is in Valencian and Spanish. Not sure why everyone expects everything in English - we never see much Spanish in UK museums! If you know a little about Valencia they have some good stuff - the flag taken during Jaime I's conquest in 1238 and his sword, for example. There are also some fascinating engravings of historcial Valencia with river and when the cathedral opened onto the square properly before they decided to box it in (why?!). It's a nice place to wander round, not a brilliant museum experience but historically important. Also nice to see how the other half lives inside the Town Hall ...in summary, if you know a bit about Valencia, you should go. If you don't, it may be a waste of time.

Forget it

Previous reviewer mentioned the flag on display and the engravings....well that is about all there is. Worst use of 2 euros on my entire holiday. I went around the entire museum (it is that small) in a few minutes. None of it is multilingual

Interesting Museum

The Museo Historico Municipal is located in the Ayuntamiento Building. It is located in the old Casa de Enseñanza founded by the Arhcbishop in the 18th century, now incorporated into the Ayuntamiento. The museum has 46 engravings that show Visions of the City, dated to the end of the 18th century and reaching the middle of the 19th century. The Sala dels Furs show mural paintings that show the first kings, created by the artist Ramon Stolz. The Sala Foral shows paintings by Jose Vergara and has the most important symbols of the history of Valencia. Among them are the Real Senyera (Catalan national flag), the Banner of the Conquest, the Trophy of the Conquest, the Sword of King Jaime I, the sculpture of the Inmaculada created by Jeronimo Jacinto de Espinosa in 1662, the Reliquary of Sant Jordi, the sculpture of the Archangel Michael, and the Keys of the City. There is a bust of Jaime I of Aragon, who conquered Valencia from the Moors. The artist was Agapito Vallmitjana, who created it in 1886. There is also a Moorish flag from 1238. There is also the statue of the Virgen del Amparo in the museum.
