Huge dolls that are used for the props for their traditional festival are displayed. Entrance fee is free on Thursday. You can understand the basque culture and traditions in this museum. It is very educational.

The exhibitions were nice and detailed, but sadly almost everything is explained in Basque or Spanish. I have a decent enough grasp of Spanish so I could decipher most of it, but it would be nice to have English descriptions as well. You get a small pamphlet with English explanations of some of the main items, but that's it. Pretty... More

We thorougly enjoyed our visit here. It`s best to start on the top floor, where there is an extraordinary model of the whole region. There is a wide variety of exhibits, including a whole section dedicated to the influence of the sea and its related industries. Entrance is free on Thursdays (for everyone) and all week for pensioners. In any... More

Wanted to visit this museum, but drove through its neighborhood without finding parking. Visited the Basque Museum in San Sebastian instead. Try taking a cab from the Guggenheim parking lot.

This was informative and good to see the basque region celebrated in this way. The exhibits get more interesting as you go higher up the building. The history etc is further up the floors. Lovely staff.

right by the casco Viejo metro station- opposite. really nothing much to see, however, and not worth paying for. If you have the Bilbao day card then you get free entry- so you may want to kill 5 minutes taking a quick look..

I happened across this gem of a place quite by accident in the old town; it is not high on the list of Things To Do in Bilbao, but it certainly should be. When I was there, there was a temporary exhibition of photographs of women at work through the decades which I found more interesting than the other temporary... More

This is a little gem in Bilbao. A very well organized museum presenting many aspects of the history, ethnology, ethnography and culture of the Basque people. I really enjoyed it, the building is also beautiful and the staff super helpful. Texts were all in three languages: english, euskerra and castellano.

If you don't understand the above mentioned languages, don't bother. The only saving grace is that the musuem counter staff was so nice and eager to share about the museum.
