“A must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

When we were here three years ago this Museum was undergoing renovation. What a great effort has gone into this. Don't miss it, you won't be disappointed. Staff were exceptional.

“A Basque Education”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

We went here on the recommendation of the hotel staff. This is a fabulous museum and does a great job teaching Basque history. This was the only museum we went to that had open and honest documentation about the Spanish Civil War and life under Franco and the effect of both on the Basque people. Well worth the time.

“Overwhelming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

The museum was free and came with an audio guide. The temporary exhibit was fascinating , and the permanent exhbits, showing a number of aspects of Basque life was extraordinary. There are three El Grecos and a small Rubens, among many other paintings. We spent several hours there, and could have spent more except exhaustion set in.
