The history of the Basque people
This museum opened to the public in 1921, and is located in a Baroque-style building in Bilbao's old quarter.
Its collections encompass the archaeology of the Vizcaya region and the ethnohistory of the Basque Country, illustrating the lifestyles of the Basques from their origins to the present day. Its exhibits enable visitors to learn about the sea, fishing and sailing, the iron and weapons industries, commercial and mercantile activities, as well as traditional trades and crafts. It also schedules temporary monographic exhibits.
