So, no way to get bored and no way to miss the last exhibitions. Should we list the museums? We think it is time to do it ahahah We always stray a lot, but we love to chat with you!
This is our first suggestion and for more than one reason! This breath-taking architectural heritage is a great place both for a walk and for a cultural afternoon. The architect Santiago Calatrava has designed it and it delights tourists and local since 1996. The aquarium displays many marine species and there is a science museum (as you may guess). This is something you cannot and you will not miss, if you live in Valencia or you pass by for a quick visit.
The National Museum of Ceramics and Decorative arts is worth a mention. The name tells you already all you need to know about it. It showcases ceramics of Valencia, porcelains and decorative objects. Furthermore, the location is amazing: A rococo style palace refurbished in the 18th century.
We love art. And you? If you are an art lover just like us, you cannot miss this museum. It will be an enchanting visual journey of the Valencia’s artistic background from the 14th century to the present times. Paintings, drawings, sculptures, ancient remains… a beauty full immersion that you must experience more than once!
If you live in Valencia, this is one of the museums that you should visit. It is the symbol of one of the most important traditions in Valencia: the San Josè celebrations. What are the Fallas? A Falla is a satirical monument made of inflammable materials raised in the main streets and squares of the city during the celebrations that take place on March. Oh, by the way, the countdown has begun: 140 days left!
This is the name of the museum opened in 1923. It showcases many collections about the bullfighting in Valencia and they are donations of Luis Moróder Peiró and José Bayard Badila. This museum is one of the oldest and most important in Spain. Even though you are not a fan of Corrida, you should definitely have a walk in this museum.
The last suggestion we will share with you today is the rice museum. Useless to say, you must visit its original exhibition. You are in the city of Paella, after all! The location is an old mill (so evocative) that was working until the 1970 and you will experience how rice was processed and produced… Let’s go!
Our brief list ends here, but you will discover more and more exhibition by living in the city. Valencia has such a wide cultural offer, that it is impossible not to find something you are interested in. From rice to ceramics, from bulls to sculptures, you are spoilt for choice.
