The ten museums of Bilbao
The event, held in the Arab Hall, was presided over by Mayor Juan Mari Aburto, who was accompanied by the Councillor for Culture and Governance, Gonzalo Olabarria; Miguel Zugaza, director of the Museum of Fine Arts; Sorkunde Aiarza, manager of the Euskal Museoa and Museum of Reproductions; Jon Ruigomez, director of Itsasmuseum Bilbao; Juan Manuel González, director of the Museum of Sacred Art; and Asier Arrate, director of the Athletic Club Museoa.
Regarding the "Map of Museums", the Mayor explained that "it is a very exciting project. Our museums have been an essential driving force in making Bilbao the city we know today, the one we walk through every day and the one we proudly show to the world: cosmopolitan, cultural and modern. A city with an international outlook that never forgets where it comes from, those characteristics that have made it what it is and whose fundamental values are rooted in its roots".
The Bilbao City Council has presented this "Museum Map", a guide with information on the ten museums that coexist in the city.
In four languages
The guide, in Basque, Spanish, English and French, consists of 38 pages with photographs and texts that provide essential information, narrate the history and peculiarities of the ten museums of the city.
"Museum Map" is now available for those who wish to get a copy at the museums and at the Bilbao Tourism Offices. The digital version can also be downloaded in easy-to-read format for those with comprehension difficulties.
