“Free is a good price for this museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2012

This tiny museum is located in the old town, and inside a lovely old building - that's the good news. it also has a wonderful 3D map of the area around Bilboa - allowing you to understand why you drove thru at least 6 tunnels to get here. Unfortunately, the English signing was non-existant, the French very brief, the displays old fashioned, and the lack of any kind of in depth analysis disappointing. Oh well - at least it was free.

“Best with a professional guide!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2012

I really enjoyed this museum for what I learned about the Basque people and their history. I traveled alone and paid for a guide that I arranged for with the hotel the day before. They charge 30 euros per group, a great price for small groups, and definitely helpful to understand the significance of what you see. I absolutely loved this part of my visit! Ask for Mirren.

Fascinating exhibits giving a real sense of the distinctive history and culture of the region. Top floor has a huge and magnificent relief model of the whole area.

“A great insight into Basque culture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

A wonderful little museum that gives you an insight into the Basques' favourite topic: themselves. The Aboriginal people of Europe with a language related to no other on earth and profoundly different cultural traditions to any other region if Iberia, miss this and you won't have experienced Euskadi and it's roots.

“Struggles to be interesting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2011

Somewhat random collections and they don't even let you out into the courtyard to see the boar. Quite difficult to stay interested in a lot of it.
