How silk transformed Valencia

To speak of silk is to speak of a golden era for Valencia, which led to the transformation of the landscape and the way of life in the city for centuries.

In the 15th century, the Gremi de Velluters, the silk velvet weavers’ guild in Valencia, established themselves in the building now housing the Silk Museum, which you can visit to explore all its secrets: the discovery of silk, the silkworm raising, the way this luxurious material was produced in the almost 5000 looms around the city and the success of silk fabrics in the 18th century.

Restoration of the Silk Museum of Valencia

After an incredible restoration, the Silk Museum opens its doors to let you discover its history in a extraordinary journey. Furthermore, you’ll be able to enjoy the temporary exhibitions that the museum hosts throughout the year.

 

The Silk Museum opens from Monday to Sunday and you can visit it in a easy and convenient way thanks to the audio guide service, always available with the purchase of your admission ticket.
