Get a Sneak Preview of Fallas

Head down to Valencia Science Museum before 15 March for a sneak preview of some of the amazing artworks that will be on display at the Fallas festival, next month.

The museum's exhibition shows off ninots, which are the smaller sculptures - or monuments - that are skilfully, and often comically, handmade as part of the world-famous annual Valencian celebrations.

TIP! Enjoy a VIP view of some of the best Fallas events with our Banging Fallas Balcony Experience!

Traditionally Fallas societies spend all year preparing and making the ninots as well as much larger sculptures, which are then erected in the streets around the city for everyone to enjoy.

At the end of the fiestas they are set alight, in huge bonfires with flames often licking the buildings around them under the careful watch of the city's fire brigade.

Visitors to the Science Museum exhibition can vote for their favourite ninot and the most popular will be saved from the flames and put on permanent display in the Fallero Museum instead, where you'll find an incredible collection of sculptures from throughout the event's history.

Entrance to the exhibition at the Science Museum is €3 for adults or €1.50 for children aged 4 to 12 years, over-65s and people with disabilities. Tickets are available on the door.

Opening hours are Monday to Thursday from 10am to 8pm; Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 9pm; and on Friday, 6 March it stays open until midnight.

Visit our event section to find out more about Las Fallas or book our Banging Balcony Experience for a privileged view of the action.
