This museum is definitely worth a visit. There is quite a lot of detail which may not be of interest to everyone. Do visit and take in as much as you want. There is a room on the tour depicting life in Gernika at the...More

Translation booklet is available if your Spanish is not stellar. The museum offers both the history of Gernika and thoughts about peace and reconciliation. The message is thoughtful and not preachy. It takes a little over an hour to see the three floors. The special...More

This museum provides great insight into the 1937 tragedy at Gernika, along with exhibits devoted to other conflicts. It is very moving.

I visited on a weekday with my then 9 and 11 year old children. The museum staff set up the audio-visual experience in English so the children could appreciate it fully. The exhibits are a sobering reminder of the costs of war and the dangers...More

Gernika seemed to be a lovely, small town. We wanted to visit the museum as the Picasso painting is so powerful (it's in Madrid). Well, what a wonderful hour or so we had in this small but excellent museum. Rather than focus on the history,...More

I spent almost 2 hours in that muzeum and must say it´s really worth of it! You get their materials in English so that you understand all the subtitles. In one room, you experience the day Guernica was under bombing. It makes your flesh creep!

I spent a few hours in Guernika y Lumo of respect for those killed 3000 people. The town is tiny and cute. Here is a secular oak tree under whose branches the kings of Castile, and then kings of Spain, had sworn to preserve the...More
