How to get there
From the Spanish border onwards, one has 100 km (62 miles) left to be driven on the AP-8 in the direction of Bilbao. Mind that fees are charged for using the motorway. Take the exit 103 and continue on the N-637 in the direction of Aireportua/ Bilbao/ Erdia/ Barakaldo/ Getxo. Then take the exit 14 in the direction of Artxanda/ Bilbao. Keep on the Corredor del Txorierri Errepidea, then continue on Enekuri-Artxanda Errepidea. Stick to the right to get onto the España Principes Zubia leading above the Ria del Nervión de Bilbao. After the bridge turn right onto the Mazarredo Aldapa. Located on the right-hand side, you will then have reached the museum after only a few minutes of driving.
