House-Museum of Concha Piquer - Museum in Valencia, Spain.
Casa-Museo Concha Piquer
Concha Piquer was a famous singer of Copla (a specific music style, popular in the 30s and 40s in the Hispanic world). The museum is here because she happened to be Valencian. It is a small museum, covered mainly in photographs and biography boards. It looks more like a photography gallery, although there are also a few dresses and accessories. Since the museum is in her family house, the upper floor shows what her living quarters were like when she was a child (1910s). The museum is small, fairly unimaginative, and out of the way. Unless you are a die hard fan of Concha Piquer, you will want to skip it.
