Since the time it was founded, the Museum's missions have included research into the subject of art history, with a particular focus on the study of its own collection. The result of this activity is an extensive series of publications on paper, including exhibition catalogues, collection guides and periodical publications of a scholarly nature. Thus, here we have compiled not only the particularly noteworthy texts published on paper, but also publications issued solely in digital format, most of which can be downloaded in Spanish, Basque and English.
This section has two aims. Firstly, that of being a platform for the dissemination of knowledge generated by the Museum's publishing activities; and secondly, that of encouraging the creation of a body of scholarly texts on art in the Basque language, making a significant volume of information in this language available to the academic community and the interested public at large while simultaneously furthering lexicographic endeavour in this field.
All the texts are published under an international Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs Creative Commons licence (BY-NC-ND), version 4.0.

Particularly important in this section is the Bulletin, a scholarly publication in which renowned experts in different fields related to art history or museography offer in-depth examinations of aspects associated with the history of the museum and its collection. It has been exclusively digital, open-access and free of charge since 2019 in order to maximise its dissemination and accessibility.
