Ninot Exhibition

The Ninot Exhibition in Valencia, dates from 1934 when it became part of the program of celebrations of the Fallas week. It begins on the first Saturday in February, where the Fallas commissions exhibit their Ninots.

The exhibition is taking place at the Prince Felipe Science Museum, in the City of Arts & Science of Valencia and can be visited until March 15. At the exhibition you can appreciate the work and effort of the Fallas artists and see up-close and in one single space more than 800 of these works of art.

All of the ninots are trying to avoid the cremà – the ceremonial fire which befalls all ninots, celebrated at the end of the Fallas festival. Nevertheless, only one figure, known as the ninot indultat, will be saved from the fire.

All visitors to the exhibition are encouraged to vote for their favourite ninot. At the end of the exhibition period, the ninot with the most votes will be moved to the Fallas Museum for posterity. The rest of the ninots will be collected for the plantá, on March 14th the children and on March 15th the adults.
