Gernika seemed to be a lovely, small town. We wanted to visit the museum as the Picasso painting is so powerful (it's in Madrid). Well, what a wonderful hour or so we had in this small but excellent museum. Rather than focus on the history, destruction and military aspects of the bombing of this town, the museum focuses on peace... 更多
I spent almost 2 hours in that muzeum and must say it´s really worth of it! You get their materials in English so that you understand all the subtitles. In one room, you experience the day Guernica was under bombing. It makes your flesh creep!
I spent a few hours in Guernika y Lumo of respect for those killed 3000 people. The town is tiny and cute. Here is a secular oak tree under whose branches the kings of Castile, and then kings of Spain, had sworn to preserve the independence of the Basque people. This oak escaped by a miracle. You will find it... 更多
Had a wish to visit Gernika for a long time- we stopped overnight and had a great time walking around and the visit to the Peace Museum was number one on our list. Only 3€ as senior or 5€ for adult. There was a huge amount of information [sadly only in Spanish and Basque] - we did get English translations... 更多
The museum tells the story of the terrorbombings of Gernika 26.april 1937. IT does so in a really good way. The meaningless horror of the bombs, but also the way back to life and hope/ struggle that this will never happening again is put to life brilliantly. You Get an english translation in the front desk!
It was easy to get the local 'bus from Bilbao to Guernika. |Unfortunately therewas a car rally on and the streets were closed. |However, |I got directions to the Tourist Place and the lady said the Museum was closed for lunchtime but she gave me a map and showed where the Park was - I wanted to go there to... 更多
This was very though provoking and powerful experience. Thankfully, not having ever lived through war this museum did an excellent job of allowing you to get a feel for the experience. I most appreciated the room where you sit and learn about the story of the bombings of the town. It had lights and visual affects and it even played... 更多
The museum is well laid out and we were given an English translation to help us read the signs. The museum really makes you appreciate the need for peace and to think of ways that this could be achieved. some of the signs were written in over flowery language but that is a matter of taste. A great place to... 更多
There is not much of the original Gernika left. As Picasso's famous painting suggests it was almost bombed to the ground. What there is there now is a monument to world peace and the hope for resolution of bloody conflict. The museum has installations and rooms where the experience of war are captured in a haunting and moving way. All... 更多
