The house in which Gregorio Mayans i Síscar and his family lived for 28 years of their time in Oliva (1739-1767) is one of the best-preserved 18th-century stately homes of its type in the town: a three-storey house comprising ground floor, first floor and loft, with a pointed arch doorway bordered with stone slabs with an heraldic coat of arms at the peak.

This house in good conditions is one of the best example of the type of house of the well-off families of Oliva during the XVIII century. This permanent and audiovisual exhibition offers the visitor the conditions of life and the history of the Family Mayans.

Restored in 1988 to be redeployed as the Casa de Cultura, since 1999 it has been the Oliva headquarters of the Valencian Museum of Illustration and Modern Art (MuVIM).
