Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Valencian Country / Province of Valencia / Valencia / Museu Faller de Valencia
Experience a piece of Valencian culture at Museu Faller de Valencia, featuring life-size figurines made of cardboard, wood, and plaster. This art form originated with junk thrown out at the end of winter--the owners would dress it up and draw faces on it, and the humorous tradition caught on. The museum displays some of the best pieces, which date back as far as 1934. These days, the figures are brightly painted and resemble caricatures. They often portray political themes, or comment on trends, society, and sexuality. No guides or brochures are offered, but there is a video explaining the history of the figures.

Museu Faller de Valencia reviews
A museum of figures that avoided being burnt at the festival? Wow..and what smashing figures they were. Amazing craftsmanship and well worth the token 2 euros entrance fee. A good visit for a couple..... more »
Year by year ninot and promotional posters on display showing how the Fallas have reflected events of the world. more »
Insights into to the traditional carnival of Valencia. Free entrance Sundays. The ventilation inside was not very good, so it was quite hot. Also audioguide was not available on that day. Children has much fun
A very interesting and often amusing museum where you can find out about the fallero fiesta and see the "pardoned" figures. Brilliant way to spend a couple of hours
