Museo de Reproducciones Artísticas

Created in 1927, this old museum exhibits full-size reproductions of original sculptures in plaster, of some of the best known works in the history of Art. The collections range from Ancient Art (Mesopotamic and Egyptian civilizations) to Classic Art (ancient Greek, Classical, Hellenic and Renaissance). Museo de Reproducciones Artísticas is well-known among artists and painters in Bilbao, as a lot of them have been there for drawing, painting and modeling lessons from Manu, dubbed 'El Ruso'. The museum also has a video library and a photographic laboratory. In the audiovisual room you can learn to sculpt using the 'grafting' method. The newly restored La Iglesia del Corazón de María is used to organize art exhibitions. Check website for more details.

Museo Diocesano de Arte Sacro

The former Encarnación Convent is next to the church by the same name, darkened with the pass of time. This convent, and now museum, was founded by the Dominican religious order in 1515. As well as being a closed convent, many members of renowned families from Bilbao are buried here, and it has served as a military garrison during various wars. The museum opened in 1995 after City Hall ceded the building to the Diocese and the Vizcaya regional government agreed to pay for its remodelling. The reward for visiting this museum is the beautiful square cloister in the middle of the convent, with Renaissance colonnade, and a wonderfully silent and atemporal feel.
