History Museum (Museo Historico) in Valencia, Spain

It is a small but heavy weight archive, as old as the Christian Valencia itself. On display are a few items on which the city was built - the official flag, the flag of surrender by the Moors, the sword of King Jaime I and the keys handed to him by the Moors when he took Valencia (this event is considered to be the most important in the history of Valencia). Also on display are various records (including the local version of Magna Carta), fascinating illustrations of the city from centuries ago, murals of most prominent kings and authentic maps which let you see how Valencia evolved through the centuries. Not so much a museum as a shrine for those interested in history. The small size of museum, the ultra-central location and free entry make it an easy one to hop into. In addition, you can view the interior of the City Hall and the reception hall Sala de Cristal.
