Zumalakarregi Museoa fatxada

The Zumalakarregi Museum is a public amenity run by the Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa, whose remit is to show specialists and the general public alike what life was like in the Basque Country in the 19th century, a time of great social, cultural, economic and political changes that marked the beginning of the contemporary world. It seeks not only to conserve, investigate and extend the collections and contents on show, but also to take visitors on a dynamic journey through a period that holds the key to understanding society today and to encourage the use of non-conventional educational resources.

Iriarte-Erdikoa, the building that now houses the Zumalakarregi Museum, is a typical 17th century Basque farmhouse. It was the home of the Zumalacárregui family, whose most distinguished members were the brothers Tomás, a Carlist general, and Miguel, a Liberal politician.
