The Museum of Prehistory and Ethnology Museum share the same building, el Centro Cultural de la Beneficiencia, the old Charity House in Valencia. As the Museum of Prehistory has run the majority of excavations in various sites around the Valencian area, its collection is formed by the spoils discovered during the works. It serves both as a preserver of the diverse prehistoric objects as well as a tool to educate on this period of history and it’s also a perfect location to take kids. The Ethnology Museum centers on the fields of culture and anthropology. It centers its study in the different cultures of the area and the relations among them, taking special attention to the local culture and the Mediterranean society.
