City of Arts and Sciences

Tickets and opening hours

As the City of Arts and Sciences is a complex comprising several buildings, you should have a look at the individual tickets and opening hours for each of them.

You can certainly go to the City of Arts and Sciences and just wander around the open areas, enjoying the promenades and walkways by the water as many locals do.

For that there are no entrance tickets or opening times, you can come and go as you please. However, if this is your first time in Valencia, we strongly recommend you take the time to actually visit each building.

Opening hours

Visiting all the six areas will probably take you an entire day, so we suggest you make a day trip out of your City of Arts and Sciences visit.

Normally, all buildings are open 365 days a year, but special occasions might imply the closure of the establishments and public holidays might change opening and closing times.

Here we have put together a table with the opening times of every building that can be visited at the moment.

Tickets

As for the tickets, they can either be bought individually or as combination tickets. If you are in fact interested in visiting more than one building, we recommend these combination tickets, as they are much cheaper than buying each individually.

We also want to remind you that you have a 15% discount on the majority of City of Arts entrance tickets with a Valencia Tourist card. If you want more information about these discounts, you can check out our article about the Valencia Tourist Card.
