Getting to Bilbao

From Santander (A8) / Donostia-San Sebastián or Vitoria-Gasteiz (A68 and A8): from the city bypass motorway, take the Bilbao San Mamés exit. At the end of the avenue that enters the city (Avenida Sabino Arana) you'll come to a roundabout and large statue of the Sacred Heart, where you'll see the first signs for the Museum. The signs will direct you to Avenida Abandoibarra, which follows the river and leads straight to the Museum.


The Museum does not have a car parking facility for visitors. However, there is metered street parking available, as well as underground parking in the nearby Plaza Pio Baroja or Plaza Euskadi car parks:

  2. To access the Plaza Euskadi car park: take Avenida Abandoibarra to Lehendakari Leizaola and turn right. This will lead you to Plaza Euskadi square. Go around the square along calle Ramón Rubial to enter the car park.
  3. In the area around the Museum, a number of disabled parking spaces are reserved for disabled permit holders.
