  • waiting for our airport taxi we stumbled across this museum wonderful cleverly laid out interesting a view of the city and its development over the centuries 
  • Very interesting! We arrived by accident in front of this Museum and I was surprised with the quality, organization and tranquility of the place. Worth knowing. The visit is fast because the place is not very big.

  • Generally the museums are interesting because offer evidences, more or less, that enrich the knowledge of visitors. In my opinion this one stands out because it shows the events which have marked the area of Bilbao and in this sense the two videos are particularly significant. Then it's nice to see the vessel, instruments, papers (curious one on which is written the our father in the language of each country) and the models exposed.
