Interesting museum telling about the history of Valencia from the allegiance (before the Romans) to the Roman epoch. It is worth seeing.

I had a great time here even though not all of the information was available in English. There's lots of interesting ceramic, stone and bone exhibits.

The museum of ethology left a lasting impression on me. Very interesting to see a brief overview of the Spanish way of life in the 19th and 20th century. Extremely original and creative installation. Truly magnificent! One of the best museums in Valencia. If you’re...More

This museum seems to have 2 different areas. One is modern and shows the coinage and money history or the Roman inheritance. The other large area covers many other topics like Iberians or old human settlements in the region and looks to be like that...More
