  • They have set up the super Museum, but they don't have material to expose. Notice the amount of money invested in the continent but inside is an ethnographic museum without significant pieces. Forgot them speak Basque shadows (eta for example).

  • Was a free day on Tuesday happened in wet weather the hotel season spent more than 2 hours are free, could observe carefully. But long event presents everything all the interesting exhibits there. Free earphones to hire at the entrance and can hear the explanation in English. Depending on the exhibit on the Panel can be selected in English local history range from the Basque political history, very good. Spain civil war and the Franco regime to further demystify the Panel as described. Canvas paintings in the Church are, of course, in 2013, canvas paintings to moisture from the mountain side, watched a documentary about the restoration work is very interesting. You can see with no luggage in lockers near the entrance. EUR 2 show tickets for the Museum in the Museum Café and ask pintxos and drinks set, not chosen from the menu and enjoy delicious food.

  • This is a really interesting regional museum. I went there on a very wet and cold day and found myself genuinely interested and engaged for around four hours. The ticket covers readmission on the day and the cafe has an offer of a pinxos and a small.drink.for two euros with your admission ticket. The museum is a Basque museum but it also has a galley with its historic art collection which includes a Rubens sketch and a Tintoretto.
  • Amazing museum we were there for 3hours and could have stayed longer. Interactive exhibits, English translations via audio remote which was very enjoyable and easy to use. Great history and story telling regarding the basque country. Highly recommended.
  • San Telmo Museum is a great place to visit when in San Sebastian. It gives a very clear and interesting history of the area with lots of artifacts and displays. There is also a beautiful old church in the museum with stunning tapestries. We really enjoyed the free audio-guide however there is plenty of English to read for those who go without.
  • A fascinating museum, very well curated. The highlight for us was the very entertaining audiovisual film in the main space. The whole experience was well worth the entrance fee.
  • Very interesting museum well organized. staff welcoming and nice. beautiful pieces of art. great moment. recommended.
