For almost a hundred years, the Basque Museum (Euskal Museoa Bilbao Museo Vasco) has accumulated a heritage of more than 20,000 objects in total, which illustrate and reflect the different aspects that shaped the life and daily work of the Basque people.

You can visit rooms with displays on the sea and fishing, sheep farming, trades and traditional handicrafts or pottery and weaving.

Particularly noteworthy is the scale model of Bizkaia and the zoomorphic sculpture known as the Mikeldi Idol, dating from the Iron Age (5th C. BC), the original of which is on display in the cloister of the museum.
