Get an in-depth look at the Fallas
The Museo Fallero de València is the perfect opportunity to get to know the Fallas Festival at any time of year, especially when it is not possible to visit the city during these holidays. Those who have experienced the incredible experience of the Fallas know that when the night of March 19 arrives, all Fallas are burned in the traditional cremá and leave us their ashes and many sensations. Really all? No. Every year two privileged ninots (those of the figures that make up the Falla monument) survive the fire and in the museum you can see all those who were rescued from the flames since 1934.
They are called ninots indultats and nowadays they are elected by popular vote among the chosen ones by the falleras mayores (the chairwoman) of each one of the 800 fallas that are planted in Valencia. A museum that brings them all together is a unique opportunity to admire in detail all the best details of a festival declared Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2016.
The Fallero Museum is also an invitation to discover how one of these ninots is built. And to know how they have been elaborated over time, from the first ones, made of wax, to the present ones, of ecological materials.
It is also possible to witness the surprising changes in the assembly techniques of the monumental fallas; to compare the graphic evolution of the posters announcing the festival and to contemplate photographs of fallas that have won the first prize of a festival that is also a contest. A route that is completed with live testimonies through films that awaken even more the desire to visit València in Fallas.
Another recommended visit is the Museo del Gremio Artesano de Artistas Falleros, which immerses us in the ancestral trades, unique in the world, that give life to the Fallas and gathers the pardoned figures of the fire according to their artistic value.
