Fallas Museum of Valencia is dedicated to the main local festival – so called “Las Fallas”. In 2016 “Las Fallas” festival was declared Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO. The museum contains the figures (aka “ninots”) that were saved from fire on the last night of the festival officially called “la nit de la cremà” which literally means “the night of fire”. It is the night from 19-th to 20-th of March when all Fallas monuments are burned with the exception of only two figures (aka “ninots”). One of them belongs to the Big Fallas and the other to the Children’s Fallas. The museum has an impressive collection of the “ninots” saved from fire from 1934 to the present day.
