Museu Nacional de Ceràmica i Arts Sumptuàries “González Martí”

 

The National Ceramics Museum was created in 1947 as a result of the donation of the ceramics collection of Manuel González Martí to the state. In 1954, it moved to its current location in the Palace of the Marquis de Dos Aguas, a Gothic building renovated on several occasions. It has preserved the 18th-century alabaster doorway by Hipólito Rovira and Ignacio Vergara. The museum houses Spanish ceramics, especially those from Valencia (Paterna, Manises, Alcora), foreign ceramics, collections of decorative arts (furniture, clothing, jewellery, etc.), as well as paintings, prints and sculptures.

Museu de Prehistòria de València

 

The Valencia Prehistory Museum is a scientific institution dedicated to preserving, investigating and disseminating Valencia’s rich archaeological heritage.

The galleries housing the permanent exhibition have assembled key evidence of prehistoric times, including stone plaquettes from Parpalló Cave, pottery vessels from the Iberian culture, different findings from the Roman period, such as the Apollo of Pinedo, and a room dedicated to the history of money. Temporary exhibitions cover different themes, all related to archaeological heritage.

Museu de Història de València (MhV)

The Valencia History Museum primarily contains archaeological and artistic collections, as well as bibliographic, technological and ethnographic archives, assembled with the aim of shedding light on the course of the city’s history. The majority of the archaeological holdings come from archaeological interventions carried out in the city since the mid-20th century. However, there are also some objects in the museum’s holdings which were purchased at one time by the council, noteworthy among them various groups of items from the Martí Esteve Collection. The paintings and sculptures come from municipal art collections. The museum also has several pieces from other museums and institutions on display, including the portrait of Germana de Foix, on loan from the Museo de Bellas Artes, and an interesting set of pottery from the Museo González Martí. Lastly, there are items donated by or on loan from individuals.

Museu Valencià d’Etnologia

The Valencian Museum of Ethnology provides the public with access to the culture left behind by traditional Valencian society through numerous objects, photographs and evidence that tell the story of how our way of living and understanding the world today was constructed. The permanent exhibition is divided into five areas which define the relationship between people and the environment in which they operate: city, farmland, marshland, dryland and mountains. In each of these areas, the objects and content are displayed in relation to core themes such as ‘inhabitation’ (domestic spaces), ‘coexistence’ (gathering places) and ‘work’ (places of work).

Museu de Belles Arts de València

The Valencia Fine Arts Museum’s collection makes it the most important cultural touchstone in the Valencian Community in terms of Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and 19th-century painting. Founded in 1837, its holdings are made up of a large selection of paintings and an extensive collection of drawings and prints, sculptures, archaeological pieces, architectural elements and the sumptuary arts. The bulk of the museum’s collection of early paintings comes from Valencian convents and monasteries disentailed in the early 19th century. Other major sources include the San Carlos Royal Academy of Fine Arts, particularly works by academics and students, and the Government of Valencia, notably the donation made by Pere Mª Orts-Bosch in 2004. Highlights include a significant group of Gothic altarpieces and works by Joan de Joanes, Francisco Ribalta, Ribera, Velázquez, Goya, Vicente López, Sorolla, Pinazo and Benlliure, among others.

Museo de Cerámica de Manises

The Manises Ceramics Museum was opened in 1967 to display the works of art and ceramics bequeathed to the town council by the Casanova Dalfó – Sanchis Causa family. The initial collection has been expanded by adding pieces recovered during excavations, donations and purchases. It is also regularly increased by the inclusion of the winning works from the Manises International Ceramics Biennial. It currently contains more than 5,500 pieces, produced primarily in Manises, dating from the 14th to the 20th century, and new contemporary ceramics.  The current space and exhibition are the result of the expansion and new museum plan opened in 1989.

Museu Municipal de Ceràmica de Paterna

 

The Paterna Municipal Ceramics Museum began its history with the mission to protect, preserve, study, promote and display the town’s historical and archaeological heritage. Archaeological interventions carried out in the municipality are the only source of the museum’s various holdings. These collections display a pottery-making history that is both recognized in the present and recognizable in the past. From the beginning, the galleries have housed pieces that are part of this legacy, material evidence presenting our visitors with the knowledge and craft of our ancestors, the magistri operis terre, whose work was highly prized throughout the Late Middle Ages. With the discovery of a Roman villa in the town centre, since 2012, the museum has also displayed part of the material culture recovered from that site.
