An area open to innovative cultural proposals
Itsasmuseum regularly stages temporary exhibitions on maritime and other themes so as to provide a more dynamic programme and broaden the range of cultural events on offer.
Selma Huxley: discovering the Basques in 16th-century Terra Nova
A pioneering scientist and historian of international renown. Her work, of great relevance to the maritime history of the Basque Country and Canada, focused on the little-known Basque expeditions to Terra Nova, today's Atlantic coast of Canada, during the 16th and 17th centuries.
Mal tiempo. Holanda
Itsasmuseum has received the temporary loan of the work Mal tiempo. Holanda by Álvaro Alcalá Galiano (Bilbao, 1873-Paracuellos del Jarama, Madrid, 1936) as part of the program The Invited Work, signed by the Bilbao Fine Arts Museum and Itsasmuseum Bilbao. This is the fifth received on loan by this institution since 2018 and it does so at a very special time, as May 21, 2023 marks the 150th anniversary of the artist's birth.
Life between tides
Life between tides is a project that simultaneously hosts two complementary exhibitions that propose a journey through the history of the Bilbao Estuary: one in the Punta Begoña Galleries in Getxo and the other in Itsasmuseum Bilbao, two strategic locations in an estuary that has marked the history of Bizkaia for centuries.
