Although our visit was limited to Goya and his contemporaries, we saw a well curated exhibit and also spent a bit of time among the paintings of classic Spanish art. The galleries are quiet and lend themselves to contemplation.

The Guggenheim is the better building but this has the better art collection, especially if you like Spanish and Basque artists. It had a good exhibition of Arcimboldo when we visited. However, some rooms were closed, including rooms with Goya and Japanese prints. This made...More

Interesting provincial museum in that it had many rooms of old representational art but many of rooms of 2oth century art too. I was well pleased that I was able to wander around the rooms of later art by myself as no-one seemed to want...More

Much better art than its famous neighbour, but not in quite so spectacular a setting. Paintings from when art was skilful.

Not the best collection, to be honest, and one of the rooms (and there aren't that many) was closed. Quite dear for what's on display, in my opinion. Couple of lovely El Grecos saved it from a rating of 2.

Situated at the head of the city park, a lovely place to spend an hour or two admiring some excellent exhibitions. The Rembrandt alone is worth the E9 entrance fee.

A must go to contrast yourself from the modernity of the Guggenheim museum. Spend at least two to three hours here. There are many fine masterpieces and we particularly liked the ones by Ignacio Zuloaga
