If you can't visit Valencia for Las Fallas, then this museum full of the festival's ninots (sculpture caricatures) is a must.
Each year, hundreds of ninots are put on display at a special exhibition and visitors vote for their favourites, which then escape from the traditional burning on 19th March and are added to the museum’s collection.
The Fallero Museum – or Museo Faller de Valencia – is located in an old inn, which later housed a barracks and military prison.
This fascinating collection exhibits ninots from 1934 onward. The collection is a wonderful demonstration of aesthetic and artistic evolution over time. The museum also features posters and photography and informative videos, which tell the story of the Fallas Festival.
TIP! The museum is located very close to the old river bed between the Opera House and the City of Arts and Science, allowing you to make the most of your day, including a walk along the river, with a stopover at the Fallero Museum. Visit for free on Sundays and Public Holidays too!
