Great architecture!

This is by far the best area of contemporary arcitecture I have ever seen. I spent hours just walking through and experiencing the buildings from every angle.

The eyecatcher of Valencia really. Get overwhelmed by the buildings. Bike past it or enjoy sitting around the buildings, or Just take some cheesy pictures.

A beautiful walk through the park brought us to the City of the Arts and Sciences. Beautiful architecture. The Science centre was okay, similar to any other. The dinosaurs were cool.

Check out the Nicholas tesla exhibit on the 2nd floor. Very well done. 95% of displays are in 3 languages.

Yoa can hardly find such an arhitectonical splendour in such a pleasant surrounding as this. For first impression a walk around is nice and inspirational.

Well worth a visit. The hemisphere does 3 d presentations with headsets which you can set for your language. The science museum, contrary to some of the reports I had read on here, is mainly translated (apart from really boring temporary exhibit on floor 2!!) . For just 2.5 euros you can "visit" the space station, go in a rocket... More

This fantastic collection of Calatrava works each housing a different museum or gallery. I admit that I was more interested in the architecture of the buildings than its contents. If you love Calatrava, you need to visit this place!

An impressive gathering of fun facts and things to do. Could be slightly more international. Some things are not completely translated. The building itself and surrounding park are a must. Best done with families!

Amazing buildings. At the time we were there, there was a car commercial being shot, so I was asked not to photograph that particular building. It wasn't floodlit the evening we were there too. So all in all not essential viewing for us tourists.
