The Museo Fallero is a museum that houses the Ninots, and is located at Plaza Monteolivete, 4.
Ninots are satirical images of people that are burned during the annual Fallas festival during the night of Saint Joseph. The images are made of paper mache and wax. The good ones are saved by popular vote in this little museum. The figures are those made since 1934. There are posters of the fallas and photographs too. Many are images of politicians and will not be understood by foreigners, because one has to live in Valencia to understand what they mean. Nevertheless, if you´re visiting Valencia outside "Fallas" (every year from 15-19 March) and you´ve got time to spare, this museum is worth a visit. You will get an idea of what Fallas are and get a feeling about the importance and atmosphere that surround, for many Valencians, this spectacular festival.
The Museo Fallero is open from Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am - 2pm and 4:30 pm - 8:30 pm. On Sunday and holidays, the hours are 10 am - 3 pm. Admission is 2 euros on weekdays and Saturdays, free on Sundays and holidays. The museum is closed on Monday.English brochure of the Fallero Museum
