  • In addition to temporary exhibitions. It is worth to visit the cloister and the Church with the large canvases of the catalan painter Sert. A journey through the life and culture of the Basque society.

  • The price of admission (only 6 euros) omen from the richness of the permanent and temporary exhibitions. Don't miss: the Museum restaurant.

  • I was attracted by the new extension of the museum. And really surprising the old and new fits well together. The collection about Bask culture is an interesting overview and background for visitors.

  • They held here the industry club for The International Film festival, and we had the chance to work inside the interior patio. It is a very beautiful building.
  • Very interesting museum, I loved the theatre and interactive displays of the church area. Be sure to get your 2 euro pintxos and drink at the bar afterwards by showing your ticket
  • Great coverage of the basque history with additional exhibitions for a cheap price, the cafe has great pintxos!
  • It is an amazing building with the church and the main part built I to each other. Great for a morning out. The cafe is very expensive though and they don't allow any photography.
  • Must visit place for visitors. A lot of interesting history inside.
