The Oceanográfic will extend its opening times during the World Meeting of the Families

May 24, 2006

To celebrate the Fifth World Families Meeting 2006 (WFM), the Oceanográfic of the Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias is to extend its opening times to the public from Saturday 1st July to Tuesday 11th July so as to facilitate visits by the public who have come to Valencia between these dates. From the 1st to the 11th of July, the Oceanográfic will open its doors at 10 a.m. and can be visited up until midnight.

For its part, the Museo de las Ciencias and L´Hemisfèric will remain closed from Monday 3rd till Sunday 9th July inclusive. Both venues will be closed during the World Families Meeting, as the Museo de las Ciencias Príncipe Felipe will be converted during this event into the International Broadcast Centre (IBC), the International Press Centre of the World Families Meeting and will be at the disposal of the mass media that are accredited to cover this event.

Hence, space will be made available for the written and audiovisual media and will be fully equipped for the tasks of the professionals from the different media covering the World Families Meeting. Both the Museo de las Ciencias and the L´Hemisfèric will resume their activities and open once again on Monday 10th July, once the World Families Meeting is over.
