Amazing sculptures with intricate details and wild imagination. Admission is free but pay attention to working hours. The close in the afternoon (as a lot of places do for siesta) and reopen at 6 p.m.

This was a very interesting visit. Nice to know the history of the Fogueres carnival. Funny and beautiful statues which are made for Sant Joan - Fogueres de Alicante. And admission is free. Recommended!

Definitely worth a visit! The museum is quite small but there's lots to see and the statues are beautiful. It's also free, which was a nice surprise.

This small museum showcases the effigies used in the famous Hogueras de San Juan festival. The collection includes some quirky and funny figures and artworks. Admission is free.

Museum of amazing, crazy figures used during annual festival in Alicante. It's free and quite small but I highly recomment to go and see - especially that it ids for free.

This takes about 1 hour but worth a visit. Very colourful and interesting to see how they make these fantastic models to burn at their festival.

I still can't believe the Spanish make these beautiful Ninots only to burn them. Winning Ninots survive and are housed in this museum. It is a small museum located near to the beach, well worth popping into.

Visited the museum during our stay in Alicante. The displays of festival figures were fascinating and pictures and history associated with them was very interesting too. Well worth a visit and free to enter.
