  • The Museum tells you in a very didactic way the world of the sea and the estuary, as well as their integration into the life of the inhabitants of Bilbao. As a bonus, it has a small pirate jinkana, and a few collections of playmobils making something exciting visit for children. An excellent combination of didacticism for the elderly and children's entertainment.
