It is a pity that most visitors spend only 1 day and miss this museum in Bilbao. Please try to visit it for learning the cultural roots and history of the Basque people. It is astonishing.

Went there with my gf. Both being from Bilbao, we found it quite interesting and learned a few things about our town and the history of the Basque region as a whole. However, I think it might not be as interesting for foreign visitors.
