You Can See Bilbao in Playskool Form at the Bilbao Maritime Museum

On my checklist of things to do in every city is to visit the city’s history museum. I just like learning how a city came to be and looking at old timey photos of the place I’m in. I also get a kick out of seeing mannequins in period costumes with audio street noise accompaniment.

While Bilbao doesn’t have a history museum per se, the Maritime Museum acts as their history museum. You can see the evolution of the city as a major port for shipping to the current state as an arts and culture destination.

The museum is free on Tuesday from September to June so can breeze in and out just to satisfy your curiosity. If anything, you can see the city done up using Playskool figures.

Towards the end of the museum is a time lapse exhibit that shows the rapid growth of the city laid out in front of you.
