This is a very playful place. Before I visited, I thought it was just giant contemporary buildings with water fixture. It is more than that. The buildings look interesting in photographs, of course. That’s not it. The whole place is actually a very useable space....More

Just looking at the various buildings of the Ciudad is worth the visit. What creativity! I visited the science museum and it is filled with so much information and interactive displays that you need several hours to see it all. Very worthwhile.

Science Museum, opera building, nice place to visit! Amazing architecture! Also nice to have a drink in the sun, and don't forget the 'rooftop' garden with the palm trees.

You can’t go to Valencia and not go here - it is a architectural masterpiece! Lots to do with all the museums etc but the surrounding area is just wonderful. Pictures do not do it justice. Great to sit with a glass of vino in...More

We didn't go inside any of the buildings, so can't comment on their contents. Externally, the 3 main buildings cover a massive area and are surrounded by water, landscaping and wide paths. The architecture is simply stunning and lends itself to plenty of photos.

Plenty to see here, and quite a bit of interactive stuff that is aimed at all ages, not just young children (which is what we normally find). We walked there from the centre (in the park where we could, it was in the torrential rain...More

I would visit again, just to find myself surrounded by these buildings. The science museum was good, but several like it exist around the world.

Amazing buildings, went into the science museum which had some really interesting and interactive exhibitions. I was with a friend and both in our mid 20s and enjoyed it. Lots of families with kids. Everything available in Spanish, English and French.

Hi, we went yesterday, a lot of the best bits are underground, but the dolphin show is outside and open plan, that show was the highlight for us. I can see how some of it may get claustrophobic, the shark tunnel and jelly... More
