Inside the beautifully re-done Etxezarreta Palace, located in Durango 30km outside Bilbao, you'll find the Historical Museum of the town. It was created by the Town Hall in 1984 as a public service foundation. There's a collection of charts, maps, tools and traditional clothing. The aim here is to provide the cultural, political and legal context of the area. It includes paintings by artists such as Manuel Losada, Alberto Arrúe, Julián Tellaeche and Antonio Lecuona. These works reflect important historical events and portraits of the most prominent denizens. The fine arts museum houses a collection of Basque paintings by Darío Urzay, Zumeta, Mari Puri Herrero, etc. Etxezarreta Palace also has a library and a hall for temporary art exhibits. The Municipal Historical Archive is located in this building as well.
