Nice historical museum but does not have an extremely large collection. The museum if free on Tuesdays. It is in the old town so there is no reason not to drop by if you are tapa hopping. more »
This is the local museum with a very entertaining ethnographic collection about the Basques. The building's architecture is also interesting with an eclectic mixture of the classical and the modern. To finish the visit we went to the cafeteria where we had surprisingly excellent pintxos, especially their Spanish omelette, made at the moment was one of the best I've tried.
Nice museum with a good range of local artifacts. Takes about 2 hours to see it all.
