"ABC. The alphabet of the Bilbao Museum" Exhibition

On the occasion of the exhibition ABC. The Alphabet of the Museum of Bilbao, the museum has published a commemorative book which includes the texts that Kirmen Uribe has written for the exhibition route accompanied by reproductions of the works of art. The outcome is a painstakingly designed book in four languages (Basque, Spanish, English, and French) with an original design by Fernando Gutiérrez.

Thanks to the support of BBK, the museum is launching a special promotion targeted at all visitors, which consists of a combined ticket that includes a visit to the museum and a free book.


General ticket

10 €

Discounted ticket

8 € (Age 65 and older, groups of 15 people or more, and other discounted rates)

Large family

5 € (One per card, applicable only to large families)


During the free entry times to the museum, from 6 pm to 8 pm, patrons have the option of entering for free without the book, or getting the book free by paying the ticket price.

During this promotion, anyone with a free ticket (Friends of the Museum of minors under the age of 25, among others) may receive a book by paying the discounted ticket price or may opt not to get the free book by choosing the free museum entry.

This promotion will be valid from October 6 until November 5. After this date, it can be purchased for €20.
