open night

The Museum is offering a night-time tour of exhibitions, accompanied by live music.

On August 4, coinciding with events to celebrate Getaria’s patron saint, Saint Saviour, the Museum proposes a night tour of the exhibitions, accompanied by live music of
pianist Paul San Martín and Dj Makala. Thanks to this initiative, the Museum becomes meeting place between different artistic languages while offering its public a somewhat different take on the building and its collections.

Free entry from 21.00 to 00.00h. (last admission at 23:15). 

Free tour of exhibitions. Bar and shop open.
