The museum also offers a museum shop, documentation centre, didactic workshops, talks, conferences, and temporal exhibitions…

Bosque animado de Ibarrola
It is one of the most provocative and exciting aesthetic adventures of contemporary art. The strokes painted on lifeless stones or tree barks share a great complicity with the surrounding environment. Access: A-8 or N-634 up to Amorebieta-Etxano and later, Bi 635 and 638 towards Kortezubi. Before arriving at this town, take the detour on the right that shows the way to the Santimamiñe caves following the BI-4244.
