The Museum Faller is a real find. To understand the history and the culture of 'La fiesta de las Fallas' then you need to visit this museum. Colourful, interactive, amazing displays, friendly, helpful and very thoughtful staff who took the time to converse with us in English. Once inside this colourful museum the narrative is also translated in English which... More

The four of us (my wife and I and our two teenagers) visited in April 2016. We knew next to nothing about the Fallas but found the museum a fantastic introduction and overview. The chap who showed us around the museum was very knowledgeable and spoke English well (despite his protestations that he didnt!). The exhibitions are very well thought... More

The museum of Fallas is one of the best I've ever visited. It's a virtual tour to the holiday of Fallas and a great chance of being involved in it if you can't be in Valencia these days. The museum presents the whole history of Fallas through videos, expositions, Fallas sculptures, texts and interesting facts. It describes and demonstrates the... More

If you're in this "neck of the woods", make sure you visit this museum. Colorful, informative, wonderfully translated into English, and most importantly one of the most interactive museums I've been to in a while. Surprisingly creative presentations of the history, music, politics, etc of this fascinating local custom. A MUST SEE. Would be great for teens, even young teens... More

You can bring your students to learn about how FALLAS (cardboard monuments) are built and decorated. They can also create their own "monument" at this museum's workshop. Very interesting for all ages. You learn about the building procss and decoration, as well as the origin of this festival. Not to miss if you visit Gandia
