The ria's museum

The museum, just like its name says, is next to the ria of Bilbao.

I went there when I was in high school, during a field trip to get to know the most important places in Bilbao. The interior part is divided into three main themes: 1. The ria, sea port; 2. The ria; 3. The ria, naval shipyard.

The three areas have monographic blocks evoking the hulls of a vessel. This is the best way to know the ria of Bilbao and its characteristics.
In the exterior part you will find the ancient dikes of the shipyard Euskalduna, where the boats find shelter aside the Casa de Bombas and the Grúa Carola (a crane).

For all of those who have a boat, this place offers the possibility of docking in the jetty. The visit is worth your time!

Life at sea

This is a good place to learn about the life at sea that the Basque sailors lead, as well as the importance of the ria in Bilbao.

The area where it is located is quite good to take a stroll and see other museums: Guggenheim, Fine Arts…

Maritime museum

In the Maritime Museum of Bilbao you can see interesting things, such as one of the boats that circled the world, buoys, enormous anchors…everything free of charge (in the exterior of the museum).

But if you want to go inside to see the ships exhibited, you will have to pay an entrance fee. But it’s not much and it’s worth it. You will find there all the elements related to the ria of Bilbao, in the form of objects or models.

They usually hold temporary exhibits, such as the “Titanic” one they had. It’s a curious museum that is worth visiting and learning a bit more about the sea.
