Past exhibitions

From its opening in 1991 up to 2007 the two main floors of the Museum were home to a permanent exhibition that provided an overview of the relationship between the Basques and the sea over the centuries, with the emphasis on shipbuilding.

In 2007 the concept of the museum was changed and the two main floors came to host long-duration temporary exhibitions. The 6 exhibitions of this kind staged to date are the following: “San Sebastián, ciudad marítima” [”San Sebastian, Maritime City”], “Los vascos y el Pacífico. Homenaje a Andrés de Urdaneta” [“The Basques & the Pacific. A Tribute to Andrés de Urdaneta”], "Cazadores de ballenas" [“Whalers”], "1813. Asedio, incendio y reconstrucción de San Sebastián" [“1813: The Siege, Burning & Reconstruction of San Sebastián”], "La costa guipuzcoana en el arte" [“The Coast of Gipuzkoa in Art”] and “La gran pesca del bacalao” [“The big cod fishery”].

The full list of temporary exhibitions staged to date is as follows:
