This was a fun interactive science museum. The city of arts and sciences is a beautifully interesting complex. As much fun to explore outside as the inside. Our 10&13 year old enjoyed the inflated balls on water in the fountains outside the entrance.

A beautiful center with many things to do. It also holds programs from Berklee College of Music graduate school. There was an outdoor concert two nights before the graduation by the students. It was a fantastic concert with open free seats for the public.

A great place for photographs. The architecture and modern art there is excellent. It's quite a way out from the city centre so try to get the tram and bus. Or a taxi. Bikes are another suggestion. We did not bother going into the buildings,...More

We really enjoyed spending a Saturday afternoon at the City of the Arts and Science. My girls (teenagers) enjoyed the water activities and bike rides at this place. Although we did not have time to enter the wonderful museums, we really enjoyed this place.

Hi! I guess you can use green (5) metro line to Alameda and then walk for 10-15 minutes via Turia. Or take a buses number 10 or 20. Bus is trickier because you need to find the stop and right direction.

Ooops, sorry for the late reply! If it is of any use anymore... yes, there is a hop-on hop-off bus service. I didn't take it though, as I was on a business trip, so I can't be of any more help! Enjoy your time there!
