Lovely little museum devoted to Basque history €6 entry and would certainly recommend the language translater to take when walking around. It is a lovely way to spend a few hours when in San... more »
This is really good. Main exhibit is about Basque culture and is very extensive. Had a secondary exhibition about robots and that was thought provoking. The building itself (former monastery) is beautiful inside and what was the church is breathtaking.
I enjoyed my time during my visit here. The range and quality of the exhibits were broad and it was truly a treat to get an opportunity to see this Museum. The staff was helpful and informed me thoroughly about what to expect. Best part is I just happened to stumble upon it as I was walking around. It's worth checking out and is also affordable and worth the admission. Thanks for the wonderful experience.
