Was persuaded to visit this but was glad that we did. Amazing carved marble frontage leads to an extraordinary interior. Fanciful rococco interiors and capricious decoration of the rooms in ice cream colours. The ceramics themselves are less interesting with the exception of the truly lovely early lustreware. An unexpected pleasure overall.

The museum, housed in a stunning palace, was one of the highlights of our visit to Valencia. The ceramic collection is wonderful, but it is the palacio and beautiful furnishings which are so special. This was an unexpected treat!

There's a bit of everything in here and what an entrance!
The facade at the entrance is breathtaking but from there on in a bit disappointing. It was shut when I first called round in early afternoon, which seemed a bit odd for a national collection, but I suppose that's Spain for you.
I don't know a lot about ceramics but I do know that the Spanish do know how to make a good tile, however this was not what I expected. It was good but I expected a larger content and I was a bit underwhelmed.
The building itself however was impressive and as well as the ceramics it also contained a large collection of furniture, paintings and antiques.The small collection of contemporary ceramics was also well worth a look.
Worth a visit but check the opening times.

Was free on Sunday morning. Impressive building with well preserved interiors as backdrops to the ceramics exhibits. What a glorious life they had.

This building is an old mansion and many rooms have been maintained 'as they were', and other areas have been modernised to exhibit ceramics and pots. Only 3 euros to go in - worth taking the time.
