The Valencia Museum of The Enlightenment and Modernity, known by its acronym MUVIM, comes highly recommended and is home to collections of medieval, Renaissance, Enlightenment and modern art.

Even if you don’t think yourself a museum or gallery enthusiast, you’re bound to find something, which stirs your curiosity at MUVIM. Housing wonderful permanent and temporary exhibitions, this museum succeeds in charming all walks of life.

Considered one of the best examples of contemporary architecture in Valencia, you’ll also find the museum’s design and environment alluring.

Nestled next to a park in Valencia’s beautiful city centre, with nearby pedestrian zones and the city’s most popular library, MUVIM consists of three distinct areas. The first is dedicated to Enlightenment art, with the second area housing temporary exhibitions. The third area is devoted to the library, research and administration.
