Cristóbal Balenciaga Museum

The Cristóbal Balenciaga Museum, opened on 7 June 2011, is located in
the town where the couturier was born, in commemoration of those early years of his professional training and maturing in order to understand his contributions to the world of fashion.

With the aim of explaining Balenciaga’s life and work, his relevance in the history of fashion and design, and the contemporaneity of his legacy, the Museum houses a unique collection. Its large size – almost 3,000 pieces which continue to rise in number thanks to loans and donations – and its wide-ranging formal and chronical extension – including, for example, the earliest existing models by the couturier – make this one of the most complete, consistent and interesting of its kind.
