MUSEUMS IN VALENCIA
One of the greatest joys of for expats interested in local culture and history is to discover the wide selection of museums in Valencia. The surprisingly diverse collection includes such gems as the Museo de historia de Valencia (history), Museo de las Ciencias (science), Museo Nacional de Cerámica (ceramics), Museo de Ciencias Naturales de Valencia (natural sciences), Museu de Prehistòria de València (prehistoric history), Museu Valencià d’Etnologia (ethnology), Museo Fallero (fallas), Museo del Corpus y Casa de las Rocas (Corpus Christi and carriages).
The exhibits impress with their at times simple, at others well structured and comprehensible displays of artefacts. Museums are located in small, ancient buildings tucked down narrow streets of the old town and in striking locations with unique architecture.
