The horrors of war were brought home to Guernica on a Monday morning in June 1937. This small market town was purposely and symbolically attacked from the air by Franco's Nazi allies. This was a direct attack on democracy, and on a civilian population. It...More

I visited the museum some 10 years ago and regret to say that it has not changed a bit. If the purpose of it is to make us think, then rotation of the display is a must. Also there is too much to read and...More

Part of the reason to visit Gernica is to reflect on its history. The museum is worth visiting but is a bit disjointed and could be much better.

Loved this museum, it is very well curated and really moves you and makes you feel the horror and nonsense of war. Do visit it if in Guernika

Translation booklet is available if your Spanish is not stellar. The museum offers both the history of Gernika and thoughts about peace and reconciliation. The message is thoughtful and not preachy. It takes a little over an hour to see the three floors. The special...More

I visited on a weekday with my then 9 and 11 year old children. The museum staff set up the audio-visual experience in English so the children could appreciate it fully. The exhibits are a sobering reminder of the costs of war and the dangers...More
