Highlights
    What to Expect
    Greet your knowledgeable guide outside the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum and begin your tour by admiring the eccentric exterior of the museum; designed by Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry, the distinctive structure caused quite a stir among European architects upon completion. Capture photographs beside the 39-foot (12-meter) sculpture of Puppy, a colossal canine made entirely from flowers, and them enter the museum. 

    Discuss your personalized itinerary then listen as your qualified, art-expert guide directs your attention to some of the gallery’s most significant masterpieces; see varied examples of art from a collection that spans from the mid-20th century to the present day. Admire the aesthetics of art scattered over three floors and appreciate the artful lighting and creative arrangement of the exhibitions. 

    Gain insight into the inspiration behind theatrical installations such as Joseph Beuy’s Lightning with Stag in its Glareb, and peruse pieces from painting pioneers such as Jenny Holzer, Richard Long and Francesco Clemente. Engage with tales of the antics of famous Basque artists and note how the surrounding landscape has inspired some of the pieces. 

    After your tour, bid farewell to your guide and continue to explore the museum independently if you desire.

    Marvin was a great guide. Not only did we learn about the art at Guggenheim but also got to know about the Basque culture

    Our guide Marvin speaks German perfectly well and knows everything about the museum and the city. If we had visited this museum by ourselves we wouldn't have understood anything.
