Really informative and interesting

We did the science museum and a film at the hemispheric. Both of them were amazing. And the prices were great. We were there for about five hours in total and loved every second.

Magnificent architecture

Cycled here through the Turia gardens. It's definitely worth it even if you don't go inside. Magnificent architecture and nice to walk or cycle along. Unfortunately, part of the water basin was empty during our visit. This can affect your photos ;)

Not impressive

We did not like it. Architecture is what we call as morbid. There are people dressed shabbily who live outside under the sky in here.

A work of art
Apr 2020
This is so much more than a city of arts and sciences, but a work of art in its own right. The architecture and the layout of the entire complex is just amazing and unlike anything I have seen or experienced - you have to come here and see for yourself. I strongly recommend walking here through the Turia Gardens - it only takes around 45 minutes or so from downtown and there's lots to see in the gardens as well, with some stunning bridges along the way.

Admittedly the inside exhibitons are a bit of a let down, but its worth the walk to see the outside alone. I would have loved to have seen an opera here, but you have to have a reason to come back!

We were told many good things about this place. But we found this place to be bland. Not worth visit.

One of the most beautiful things to visit in Valencia city
Oct 2020
Nice area to walk around. You can go on a small canoe on the water for cheap price, which is very romantic. But even without the canoe trip, it is still worth visiting.

Magnificent architecture

This place is an absolute “must see” if you are in Valencia. The modern architecture of the pavilions as well as the setting is absolutely worth a visit. One could even say you haven’t seen Valencia if you didn’t go here.

We was in and out in one hour
I feel I wasted an hour if my life walking around there
If I had known how bad it was I would've rung my mother in law for an hour's chat instead
