The Ninot Exhibition 2023
The ninots are the figures that make up the scenes in the Fallas monument. At the beginning of February, each commission contributes its best ninot (just one) to a collective exhibition that is open to the public up to the day of the “plantà” (the finishing touch), when each figure is collected by its commission, during a noisy procession with whistles and brass bands, and taken to the monument it forms a part of.
Each visitor to this exhibition has the chance to choose, from among them all, the “ninot” that he or she likes best: whether because of its originality or its design. When the time comes to close the exhibition, the votes are added up and the “ninot” with the largest number of votes is pardoned: it will have the honour of being the only “ninot” in all of Valencia that, officially, will not burn on the night of the 19th.
Once the fiesta is over, that ninot will go on display at the permanent exhibition of ninots indultats housed in the Museo Fallero, while its companions are burned to ashes.
The same process is repeated with the children’s Fallas, whose ninots can also be visited at the same exhibition.
Opening hours: From Monday to Thursday, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. From Friday to Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. On March 14th and 15th, the exhibition will close at 3:00 p.m.
Prices: 3€ Adult 1,5 € Reduced (Children from 4 to 12 years old, over 65s and/or retired 65 on presentation of supporting document)
