Free Sundays

Free is one of the best words in any language and Sundays are free at museums in Valencia.  Even if you don’t care for the art on the inside many of the museums are worth a visit just to see the buildings that house all of the junk. A good example is the National Museum of Ceramics in the picture above. Who cares about ceramics? Not me, that’s for sure. However, the former renaissance palace is a splendid work of art in itself. The IVAM, or El Instituto Valenciano de Arte Moderno has revolving exhibits and you will feel smarter just walking around the place. And did we mention that it’s free on Sunday?

It’s free but don’t forget your wallet at home. For one thing, Sundays are a perfect day to grab a Valenbisi bike to explore one of the city’s dozens of fine museums.  It is hard to spit and not hit a museum in the center of town, although polite museum guards will ask you not to spit.  After you have pretended to care about art and history you may want to stop off for tapas and a beer. You have to spend all of that money you just saved on museums somewhere; it may as well be in a bar.
