It's free so that was a nice surprise. Walked round the various rooms and upstairs. Would recommend you start upstairs and then look over balcony at some if the larger pieces as too imposing when downstairs. The temporary exhibition of photos replicating art was interesting but not sure Michael Jackson should really replace Jesus!

Free. Has a permanent exhibit of sculpture by a valenciano whose name escapes me, who was a heavy donor to the museum. Right now it has a very interesting photography exhibit. They photographed a bunch of old paintings and then "updated" them. For example, one old painting has a wine goblet and the new one has a bottle of single... More

As the museum is open until 8pm it can be visited when other attractions are closed. It is slightly out of the way so best visited after the 'must sees ' in the centre have been 'seen'. Bus No 11 from the Plaza del Ayuntamiento stops right outside the door as do others. Locals and bus drivers seem to know... More

This is a fine museum indeed, full of excellent paintings of Goya, Velazques and many others. Admire the modernity of the old masters, the way they paint. Take at least one hour to see all the gems.

Besides special room dedicated to Sorolla, my favorite part of the museum was a temporary exhibition of photos, contemporary "covers" of paintings hanging in Museo de Bellas Artes. Worth noticing that the visit is free.

This is a great place to see Valencian (and other Spanish) art, much of it from the 14th to 18th century. There are pieces from Italian and Dutch artists too. It's a very spacious museum with large rooms to allow you to admire the larger works from a distance.

Spent a very enjoyable morning at this museum in Valencia, went at opening time and it was practically deserted. It's true that the main emphasis of the Museum appears to be on Religious art and Iconography and this can be a bit overwhelming after a while. However, the Joaquin Sorolla (the Valencian artist whose name the train station bears) Gallery... More

The museum building next to the Turia park is very beautiful. It has a fine art collection of paintings from the 14th to 17th century. The altarpieces which dominate the main hall are striking and interesting, even if you're not into medieval art. I particularly enjoyed the Sorolla collection. Added bonus - it was free!

Describing itself as a museum of fine arts is a bit of a misnomer. It should really be titled the museum of Catholic Iconography as this is 85% of the content. Once you've seen a couple of altar pieces it gets very repetitive. The there some works by Goya and Heronimus Bosch but this really doesn't make up enough to... More
