They provide the opportunity to get to know the Museu Valencià d'Etnologia through explanations given by the museum's technical staff.

 

The museum's permanent exhibition is divided into three sections: 

1. The first, entitled The Town Experienced, focuses on the life in Valencian towns in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, combining objects from everyday life from different sources with audio-visual media, which provide a broader insight into that society. 

2. Next, you can visit the area dedicated to the irrigated vegetable garden, called Huerta & Marjal, whose exhibition hall is structured in two basic sections: one focusing on concepts — such as the importance of water management, the different types of housing or the wide variety of crops and their focus on commerce; and the other one concentrating on objects.  The tour is completed with an interactive space. 

3. The last area, Drylands and Mountains, focuses on ideas such as the relevance of dry stone in landscape construction, the protection of the house, the emigration of women to the town, and the unknown figure of the single man in the inland villages. This part is completed by an exhibition room with 150 pieces hanging from the ceiling, which recall the layout many of them would have had in the attics of the houses.

This tour can also be supplemented with guided visits to the temporary exhibitions offered by the museum at any time.
