We only came here because we bought a ticket that gives you entrance to all the main museums in the city. You can buy it at any of the main museums and it saves several euros if you visit all of them. We thought it seemed worth the money and so we decided to go to both this museum and... More

First time we heard about this museum we were so-caled 'speaking' to a local man '(my castellano is of beginner level) when at least I could understand him a bit knew that it's one of the most interesting museums of Vitoria and it's free of charge.
