Above photo - Principe Felipe Museum (museu de les Ciencies) it is part of the ultra modern entertainment and educational complex in Valencia known as the 'Coitat de laes Arts i de les Ciencies' (City of Arts and Sciences).

The City of Arts and Sciences is an educational and entertainment complex whose structures were designed primarily by Santiago Calatrava. The massive Principe Felipe Museum is a science museum and science center, in the L'Hemisferia is the Imax theater (also a planetarium) and the Palau de les Arts is the center for performing arts. The Valencia aquarium is at the far end of the complex, entrance access is from the Camino de las Moreras. The L'Umbracle, the entry way to the Art and Science center, is a very fancy parking structure with an arboretum growing on top.


Photo Above - the Palau de les Arts is the most recent inclusion in the City of Science and Arts.

We made it to the Ciutat de laes Arts i de les Ciencies on the very last day we were in Valencia. Scheduled to leave Valencia by train in the afternoon we arrived early and started exploring the expansive Science park. While the architecture views here are certainly attraction enough in there own right, we wanted to experience the facilities. Unfortunately, we only had time to explore one of he sights of Ciutat de laes Arts i de les Ciencies, the Aquarium.
