  • Striking new architecture juxtaposed with the old buildings sets the tone for what's inside. It's a great example of modern exhibition design (with not too much content) but what's there is really int...  more »
  • the Museum is very varied, a collection of painting very rich damage that they expose only 10% of their collection. Wonderful staff and the icing on the cake concert of classical music in the cloister. TOPISSSIME.

  • Located in the old quarter, the San Telmo Museum welcomes, this summer, two beautiful exhibitions. On Alfred Hitchcock is remarkable not his content and his Museum. It addresses themes already known of moviegoers (the influence of German aesthetics, reports men and women, censorship, etc) but accurately, key examples and the Nice stagings. The final pane on the employees of the "master" is particularly successful. PS: admission is free Tuesday!

  • Musée très impressionnant, ne manquez pas la petite animation expliquant l'histoire de San Sebastián dans l'église !
  • Free on a Tuesday (I think) ... really nice to escape the heat of the sun for a few hours
  • 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!
