  • Nice collection of Renoir. The truth is that both the temporary and permanent worth, yours is to go on Wednesday by the mnn or Sunday afternoon that is free. Looks fast because it's not very big, and has audio guides for those who want to soak up everything.

  • We went to see the Renoir exhibition, but we didn't have much time, so we will have to return at another time. It is welcome that the Sunday afternoon is free.

  • 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
