The Gernika Peace Museum is a theme museum setting out the culture of peace. It was inspired by the tragic bombing of Gernika on 26 April 1937.

Euskal Herria Museum

Housed in the palace of Alegria or Montefuerte, a 1733 baroque reconstruction of an ancient medieval tower. Set in the historical heart of Gernika-Lumo, it survived the 1937 bombing.
