Very nice brand new facilities definitely family friendly only bad thing is that if you go when there is no game you cannot enter the stadium. Tours are not offered in the 2016-2017 season maybe available next season.

Either if you are in Bilbao go to any Kutxabank ATM and get tickets there or you can get it from their website or any place that sells the tickets. P.S For the third option check it is a reliable website Regards
