Museum of water

The Museum of Water is an innovative project designed to be an interactive space where modern technologies and simulations provide both learning and fun at the same time. It also aspires to be a valuable tool for educating and raising awareness among children and adults to conserve natural resources, improve the environment and use water responsibly.

This engaging exhibition space is located in Sobrón, southwest Álava, in an outstanding natural setting, long associated with water. Its proximity to the Ebro river defines its character and terrain, without forgetting the properties of the mineral rich medicinal waters of its old spa, known as the “Spanish Vichy”, that enjoyed much renown during the 19th century and the first half of the 20th.

Sobrón pays homage to this history at the Museum of Water.
