Valencia is an exciting and educational city for people of all ages, especially if you visit unique venues such as the futuristic Arts and Sciences Centre. The whole family will have a great day at the vast marine centre there, where animals from all the oceans of the world can be seen at close quarters. You can also go and see an audiovisual show in an eye-shaped building, and then go and perform scientific experiments at the Príncipe Felipe Museum. Another option is to discover the site by taking a fun ride on the tourist train.
Other museums in Valencia, such as the Valencia Institute of Modern Art (IVAM), run workshops for children. Meanwhile, the “Fallas” Museum offers a marvellous opportunity for learning about the “ninots”, highly original giant figures or dummies that are saved from the bonfires during the “Fallas” festival.
And if you want a really pleasant way of getting to know the city, don’t miss the colourful Plaza Redonda Square on Sundays, where you’ll find stickers, comics and hundreds of other things to delight your children.
