This is hosted by one of the very modern buildings in Valencia. We saw baby chicks hatching from the eggs, we experimented different scientific anomalies, we admired dinosaurs and we have interacted with exhibits relating to humans and life overall. It was very pleasant.

We visited the museum while we were in the City of Sciences. It's a very modern museum with plenty of cool science related areas and rooms.

After visiting Oceanogràfic it's maybe the idea to visit this Museum of Natural Science with the combi ticket. We did this, but it's not my recommandation. It's very tiring to make both, because this museum needs some time to have the full benefit. First of all the architecture is overwhelming. Especially when you have nice weather it's a great pleasure... More

I don't regret going with the family, but I would say the time we spent in the park/gardens before and after the museum visit were much more enjoyable. The entrance is only a few Euros so it's worth going to the museum and you can go through it relatively quickly, but the museum itself is quite basic in my opinion.

Don´t loose your time reading posters or trying to figure out what the interactive exhibits are supposed to do (or to teach). You won´t learn a lot and your probably just feel depressed for loosing your precious time. The surroundings are very beautiful and definetely worth a visit, as is certainly the Aquarium nearby.

The museum was full of exhibitions all tailored towards the Spanish, so it was really confusing to navigate if you only speak English. A lot of the exhibits were broken, and the ones that weren't were a bit dull. You don't learn very much!

First of all the building is magnificent. The architecture is splendid and you have to see it. We went there to see the Dinosaur exposition and to give the kids a little break from all the historic building that we were visiting. They were very disappointed by the exposition (maybe their expectations were too high :)). All the expositions are... More

Just visited this museum and while the property and the building are beautiful and new, the exhibits left us wanting more. The exhibit on Tesla was interesting and presented in a thoughtful and logical way that spotlighted his place in Scientific history (English translations in the Tesla exhibit were helpful for non-Spanish speakers and very appreciated). I want to find... More

Me and my girlfriend spent the New Year in Valencia and was probably the best New Years ever! And the great thing about this trip is that we made no plan for it and just took the flight to Valencia. And one of the best entertainment we had were the 2 days spent in this amazing place, which is actually... More

I think the best thing about this museum is that many of the exhibits are interactive. It's not just for kids but adults also. I personally found the top floor most interesting because it was mostly about rockets and space and the ISS. There is alot of walking if you want to see it all. Dedicate several hours. There's places... More
