  • nice little place on the old docks, look for the big red crane and the museum is under the main rd, not a tremendous amount to see but interesting enough.  more »
  • Reasonably interesting museum about life in Bilbao port that was totally bereft of visitors during summer vacation. It costs 6 Euro to enter and is reasonably good for a wet weather day. I would not bring little kids here as they may not enjoy it that much. You have been warned
  • Interesting museum with some very good exhibits. Some of the informative videos can be played in English and there is also a useful app you can use to maximize your visit (bring headphones) I would recommend this museum to visitors to the City who want to understand a bit more of the history of Bilbao and how it’s roots are strongly set around a maritime history
