Museo Valenciano de la Ilustración Moderna (MUVIM)

This fascinating museum is housed in a new building by the Sevillian architect Guillermo Vázquez Consuegra, one of the best examples of contemporary architecture in Valencia. Inside, impressive exhibits are dedicated to a decisive period of Valencian history that began in the 18th Century and that helps viewers understand how we have come to see the world and be in it.

National Museum of Ceramics and Sumptuary Arts "González Martí"

The ceramics museum, Museo Nacional de Ceramica y Artes Suntuarias Gonzalez Marti recently re-opened after having been closed for many years, and it is one of the most famous in the city. Built at the end of the 15th century, it was totally reformed in 1740 by its owner, the Marquis de Dos Aguas, in a baroque style with a notable rococo door fashioned in marble. The permanent collection includes ceramic works of art, spanning every era. Particularly outstanding are the famous Arab and the later Christian ceramics from Manises, a small town located on the outskirts of Valencia. Check the website for more details.

Galería del Palau

The Palau gallery is located in the old district of Valencia, very near San Juan del Hospital Church. It is a very interesting place to simply look around, as well as to buy contemporary works of art. It gained notoriety in the 70s and 80s for exhibiting the work by the Equipo Crónica. The gallery now works with contemporary artists, such as Fuencisla Francia, among others. One of its principal assets is its owner for her understanding, taste and integrity, as well as the quality of the art on offer.
