Owner description: DISCOVER THE CIUTAT DE LES ARTS I LES CIÈNCIES. Science, nature and art in a complex devoted to scientific and cultural dissemination in Europe, placed in Valencia. The City of Arts and Sciences in Valencia is a unique complex devoted to scientific and cultural dissemination which is made up of five main elements: the Hemisfèric (IMAX cinema and digital projections), the Umbracle (a landscaped vantage point and car park), the Príncipe Felipe Science Museum (an innovative centre of interactive science), the Oceanográfico (the largest aquarium in Europe with over 500 marine species) and the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía (which takes care of the operatic programme). The Ágora gives the complex a multifunctional space.

Lots of activities for kids. Most have English translation unfortunately there are some small areas with no translation. Includes dinosaurs, robotics, geology and biology.

This is a stand out attraction in Valencia. We walked along the old Turia river bed from Alameda Metro station towards the Arts and Sciences and were awed by our first sight. Completely futuristic but managing to stand alongside the old city. We visited an exhibition of Fallas puppets whilst there during the day but returned in the evening to see the local Valencians parading the children's puppets through the grounds accompanied by brass bands and singing. The night lighting of the complex is superb - a whole new look.

Had a great day in the city of arts and sciences which we combined with the IMAX movie theatre. A very good interactive experience.

This place is the stuff of dreams. The architecture is awe inspiring, the outdoor pools are huge and beautiful. The indoor exhibits are cool and will interest young and old. There are also water activities for all ages - boats, canoes, inflatable balls. The park outside is also very nice. The sign posting inside and outside could be a lot clearer i.e. Where to start? A suggested path through the park depending on age group/interest group, and how to get from A to B on KISS format.

A stunning architectural delight awaits when you go to the arts and sciences museum. Just looking at the outside completes my bucket list. However, the museum it’s self has historical and prehistoric items that few will ever see.
