  • It is a museum with a nice collection of all kinds of paintings. One of the best provincial museums in the Spain. Worth a visit it if you like painting.

  • Super that the 1 x per week free is open. Not for nothing that it is precisely because of the excellent exhibitions particularly busy. Very nice restaurant.

  • The Museum has one of the best collections from the Romanesque Catalan Spanish up to the latest trends. It has great works of all periods both nationally and internationally. A Museum of great quality who cares much for details and often have large exhibitions. To highlight they are parts of the Flemish Renaissance, Spanish Baroque represented by the best artists, the complete collection of Goya's engravings and paintings of his contemporaries. An excellent collection of Basque art and works of great quality art conteporaneo

  • One of the must see museums in Bilbao. A lot of quality art works if not all actually. Plus be aware there is a lot to see! I went to see a contemporary art exhibition and it was a nice balance between everything else displayed, I suppose, permanently.
  • A fantástic and unknow Bilbao museum. Really nice collection of pictures
  • Even better than the Gug, beautiful paintings by Basque artists.
  • A very interesting museum in Bilbao. Plenty of master pieces, it is worth a visit
  • Good temporary exhibitions, the permanent exhibition has great art too
