Rialia Museo de la Industría

Museum in Portugalete

Learn about Portugalete's industrial history at this small waterfront museum. Displays, which include paintings, models and machinery parts, chart the town's development and the effect early industrialisation had on the area's landscape and social make-up. Best of all are the short films showing fiery industrial action – smelting, welding, molten flows – backed by melodramatic musical arrangements.
