The Getaria Museum is a specialised centre dedicated to a single author, meaning that its exhibitions are considered to be a reference in the context of Cristóbal Balenciaga’s life and work.

The Museum also runs exhibition initiatives on other subjects related to the world of fashion and art, paying special attention to local ties with Donostia-San Sebastián, Gipuzkoa and the Basque Country.
