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.
This takes a look at the ethnography of the Basque people through various exhibits and objects. In addition to the value of the building and its central cloister, the collections it contains include everything from the oldest remnants found in the region of Vizcaya, through to examples of the traditional ways of life of the Basque peoples. 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.
