I wanted an overview of Basque culture, but there were no explanatory signs in English. The free audioguide was missing a surprising number of entries and many of the ones it did have talked around the topic without providing much information. Still, I found it...More

This museum is worth a visit! But more because of the astounding environment than the exhibit itself. You'll get a general overview of basque history, and the objects on display are interesting. But information in English is scarce and the audio guide (free of charge!)...More

I really enjoyed exploring the various parts of this museum. It's not as well designed as other museums I've been too-a lot of the galleries are dimly lit and there are many signs of aging-but all material was very interesting. There is an overwhelming amount...More

This museum was a treat. Maybe it was more interesting to me because there is a significant Basque population in the US town in which I live, but I really enjoyed the displays, the art, and the 16th-century Dominican convent within.

This museum is located in an old monastery and a brand new building. The exhibits about Basque history are well made even though more text could have been in English. Stroll through and enjoy. Do not forget to see the Sert-paintings in the old church.

We are so glad we walked through San Sebastian to this museum. The building itself - a blend of very old and modern - works quite well. The church is currently housing the Sert canvases (awesome in the dimly-lit sanctuary); the cloister is beautifully restored...More

A good location and some good Basque history and art, but made more difficult to appreciate as there was limited descriptions in english.
