Ceramics Museum - Museum in Valencia, Spain.
Museo Nacional de Ceramica Gonzalez Marti
(Palacio Del Marques De Dos Aguas)
The big part of the museum is the fact that it is located in a gorgeous Rococco palace. The amazing entrance is one of the Valencia's landmarks. You can enjoy the luxurious splendour of the rooms, some of which are kept in the original Gothic style of XV century, and others bring you back into the age of salons, orientalism and ballroom dancing. There is even a carriage entrance complete with a few carriages. All rooms, in addition to luxurious interior, hold fine examples of ceramics. There is even a fully equiped typical Valencian kitchen made 100% of ceramics from top to bottom, and a porcelain room where most things are of coloured porcelain artwork. The top floor has a large collection of ceramics from prehistoric times to Islamic samples and exquisite modern works. You can see how ceramics have evolved over time and marvel at how incredible they can be. You can also find out about the history and process of ceramic making.
