About San Telmo Museo, San Sebastian

This is a historic museum situated in the Old Town inside an old 16th century magnificent building. This was earlier a place of a Dominician Convent. Used previously on as an artillery barrack, this was transformed into a municipal museum in the 20th century. The building is completely of the Renaissance style with the cloisters and the canvass decorations. Most of the decorative works were the contributions of the famous Catalan artist Jose Maria Sert. It was later renovated extensively and a brand new museum with fresh collections added was opened up in 2011.

  • Amazing museum we were there for 3hours and could have stayed longer. Interactive exhibits, English translations via audio remote which was very enjoyable and easy to use. Great history and story telling regarding the basque country. Highly recommended.

  • San Telmo Museum is a great place to visit when in San Sebastian. It gives a very clear and interesting history of the area with lots of artifacts and displays. There is also a beautiful old church in the museum with stunning tapestries. We really enjoyed the free audio-guide however there is plenty of English to read for those who go without.

  • A fascinating museum, very well curated. The highlight for us was the very entertaining audiovisual film in the main space. The whole experience was well worth the entrance fee.

  • Very interesting museum well organized. staff welcoming and nice. beautiful pieces of art. great moment. recommended.

  • Quiet place, the permanent exhibition is on the Bascs history, specially focused on the maritime commerce and medieval escapades. You can enjoy some live music or opera. Tuesday it is free *
