nothing special to see and nothing in English so really not worth a visit. it is located right by the casco Viejo metro station and opposite the equally unimpressive bilbao/vasco museum. if you have the bilbao tourist card you get in free- so may want to spend a few minutes in here..

I enjoy visiting museums of all types. This one is good; I'd give it a solid "B". It felt like an undergraduate end-of-the-semester archeology project. It lacks the professional polish, but perhaps with more economic support this could be first-class in the near future.

None of the information displays are in English although we did get a book which told the story, however this would have been handier had it been numbered and linked to each display.
