  • The Museum provides an interesting insight into the history of Bilbao and the urban development, as well as the industrial and descent

  • We went to see the Maritime Museum and take the surprise that the first plant was in works so there was a discount. The truth that is quite interesting and luckily there was no people so that can be leveraged enough. The part that most liked the history of the last voyage of a vessel.

  • Unjustly in the shadow of other museums more than fashion, it shows a splendid portrait of the maritime life of Bilbao in facilities that are very favorably surprised. Highly recommended. To visit with time and calmly.

  • Great place to bring your kids! There are activities for kids to do while you explore the museum with them! Entertaining for the whole family!
  • Probably would be better for locals. Though they have an app to help, visuals are in Spanish and Basque only. Tons of ship models, so I'm sure there are ship geeks who would love it. I learned a bit about the evolution of the river that was interesting though.
  • Nice to have a walk early morning along the riverbank
  • Very interesting museum
  • Nice museum
