The City of Arts and Sciences receives a total of 275,520 visitors over Fallas and Holy Week


The City of Arts and Sciences welcomed a total of 275,520 visitors over Fallas and Holy Week, with 140,537 people visiting the Príncipe Felipe Science Museum, 35,554 spectators watching films at the Hemisfèric and 99,429 people visiting the installations of the Oceanográfico.

 

With regard to the origin of those visitors, 88 per cent were from outside the Valencia Region, 27 per cent of them being foreign tourists mainly from Italy, England, France and Germany, and 61 per cent from other autonomous communities of Spain, especially Madrid, Catalonia, Andalusia and Murcia. The remaining 12 per cent were from the Valencia Region.

“Titanic. The Exhibition”, which has until today been on show at the City of Arts and Sciences, has received around 300,000 visitors since it opened in March 2007, allowing visitors to find out all they wish to know about the history of that legendary ship through original items, images and documents.

The digital animation show “The Enchanted reef: Kaluoka’hina” and the digital planetarium films “Origins of life” and “The Search for life...Are we alone?”, together with the large format films “The Alps”, which tells of the ascent of one of the most dangerous faces of those mountains, “Secrets of the Titanic”, “Coral Reefs” showing some of the most beautiful reefs in the world, and “The Mystery of the Nile”, which allows spectators to join in the first full descent from the Blue Nile, were the films on show. So many spectators flocked to the Hemisfèric that, over these days, it was 100 per cent full at all its sessions.

Visitors to the Príncipe Felipe Science Museum, besides the interactive exhibitions offering a multitude of activities and initiatives linked to educational and scientific themes, as well as the workshops on DNA, Foucault, Archimedes, that devoted to producing a television programme or the “Balloon Voyage”, were also able to interact with exhibitions such as “CVIDA”. We look after your quality of life”, “Woman. One body, one life”, “Memory”, “Climate Change, Questions and Answers”, or “The Science of Espionage”.

The public that went round the installations of the Oceanográfico found a unique biological collection representing the main marine ecosystems of the world from the Atlantic and Mediterranean to the Arctic or Antarctic, passing through temperate and tropical habitats. This permanent offer was complimented by temporary exhibitions dedicated to the marine world. At present the Access Building is hosting an exhibition entitled “Corrals, architects of the oceans”, and the photographic exhibition commemorating the five years of the Oceanográfico’s existence.
