Valencia History Museum (Museu d'Història de València) Tours

Get to know Valencia beyond just the modern-day city by heading to the
Museu d'Història de València. The museum takes visitors back over two
centuries to explore the city’s deepest roots via exhibitions that range from pictures to documentaries, artifacts, and more. Perhaps the highlight is the museum’s time machine, which captures the evolution of Valencia as it grows and changes over time.

And the building is quite intriguing, too, as the museum is located in an old, essentially underground, water cistern. Constructed in 1850, the brick-and-column structure is emblematic of Valencian industrial architecture. While the space is lighter on artifacts than it is on videos and descriptions, those that are interested in Valencia’s history, and seeing this historic space, will find the visit to be a gratifying way to get better connected with the city and its past.

Practical Info

The museum isn’t located in Valencia’s historic center, and rather at the
western end of the Turia River Bed Gardens, right near the Bioparc zoo. The museum is free to enter on Sundays, and is closed on Mondays.
