This small museum had excellent exhibits detailing the history of silk making in general and in Valencia in particular (in the 15th century, over 50% of Valencia workers were employed by silk related industries). Signage was easy, staff helpful. A very enjoyable and educational couple...More

Nice museum with smaak demonstration show, but nothing special. Nice terrace,but you are chased away if you want just coffee around lunch time. As they prepare all the tables die lunch, you are not allowed to sit at a table anymore

The museum is in a beautiful old building making the visit a double experience. The silk collection explains very well the history in Valencia and how it has developed from the early years until the 18th century. The audio tour is well worthwhile.
