Besides special room dedicated to Sorolla, my favorite part of the museum was a temporary exhibition of photos, contemporary "covers" of paintings hanging in Museo de Bellas Artes. Worth noticing that the visit is free.

This is a great place to see Valencian (and other Spanish) art, much of it from the 14th to 18th century. There are pieces from Italian and Dutch artists too. It's a very spacious museum with large rooms to allow you to admire the larger works from a distance.

Spent a very enjoyable morning at this museum in Valencia, went at opening time and it was practically deserted. It's true that the main emphasis of the Museum appears to be on Religious art and Iconography and this can be a bit overwhelming after a while. However, the Joaquin Sorolla (the Valencian artist whose name the train station bears) Gallery... More

The museum building next to the Turia park is very beautiful. It has a fine art collection of paintings from the 14th to 17th century. The altarpieces which dominate the main hall are striking and interesting, even if you're not into medieval art. I particularly enjoyed the Sorolla collection. Added bonus - it was free!

Describing itself as a museum of fine arts is a bit of a misnomer. It should really be titled the museum of Catholic Iconography as this is 85% of the content. Once you've seen a couple of altar pieces it gets very repetitive. The there some works by Goya and Heronimus Bosch but this really doesn't make up enough to... More

The museum has an interesting Spanish collection and also other European painters.Is not a big collection but they certainly have some masterpieces from SXV and further. You can admire also some paintings of Sorolla ( valencian painter) the are quite good.

This is a very nice museum with lots of art from 14 and 15th centuries including some very impressive altarpieces. There is also an excellent exhibition of Sorolla's work which I really enjoyed. Entrance is free and it's a very pleasant way to spend a couple of hours learning more about Spanish art.
