Itsasmuseum (Bilbao)


The Bilbao Maritime Museum is a hidden treasure that pays homage to the history and importance of the sea in the life of the city. It is located in a beautiful industrial-style building next to the estuary and captivates visitors with its fascinating collection and enchanting atmosphere.

This charming place offers a world of maritime adventures and presents the close relationship that Bilbao has had with the sea throughout the centuries. The permanent exhibitions provide a comprehensive overview of maritime history, from traditional navigation to the most modern technological advances.

The museum houses an impressive collection of historic vessels, including fishing boats, sailboats and work ships that tell stories of brave sailors and their voyages across the oceans. Strolling along the museum dock and admiring these floating gems is a magical experience that transports visitors back in time.

The place also exhibits a wide range of artefacts and objects related to marine life. Ship models, navigation instruments, old maps and a collection of historical photographs help visitors understand the evolution of navigation and its impact on society.

One of the most interesting areas of the museum is dedicated to fishing. Here, visitors can explore traditional techniques, learn about the different species that inhabit the nearby seas and discover the importance of sustainability in modern fishing. In addition, the museum offers interactive workshops through which visitors can experience fishing activities first-hand.
