I was surprised how small this museum was, but it had some art which I could understand. The museum itself is worth a look. I was the only visitor. You have to walk through the Paseo de la Florida, a nice parkland/area.

We visited this museum with our multipass ticket, which applies to all the museums in the city. It is worth getting, as you can save several euros if you visit all the museums. The outside of the museum building is incredibly impressive, as are many of the houses on the street. It is worth taking some time to look at... More

Lovely stop in the Senda promenade. I didn't go in because of lack of time, but I am definitely glad I at least saw it from the outside. Such an impressive building surrounded with lots of greenery.

The museum includes great impressionist pieces from 18th to 19th centuries. The building (an old palace) and its beautiful garden are impressive, as well. Even the zone is a charming. (It is possible to find other original architectures at this part of the city.) It is closed on Mondays. Rest of the week it is open at the given hours:... More

This museum is a wonderful stop in the "Senda" promenade. There are remarkable pieces of Basque painters like Ignacio Zuloaga, Elias Salaverria, Ignacio Diaz Olano and Fernando de Amarica together together (interesting as well as represent some Basque traditions and way of life) with with other famous Spanish painters like Joaquin Sorolla and Vicente Lopez. Its visit is truly worthy.... More

It was an education for us in Basque painters. The building was a fabulous old house being repurposed. it was a treat to admire the moldings and ceilings, plus a lovely walk by a park to get there in a posh neighborhood of similar houses.

The remarkable pieces are mostly impressionist. The building itself is quite beautiful as it is an old palace converted into a museum. Prices of entry is 3 euros (lonely planet needs updating)

The style of this palace is that... More
