Absolutely stunning... That Guggenheim museum building is without a doubt the most interesting building I have ever seen or visited. I must have taken more than 100 pictures. Spend some time and walk around the outside, be sure to see it from the top on...More

This really was very different to any museum that I have been to before. Give yourself about 2/3 hours to go around the whole museums. Some of the exhibitions where a bit weird but also mind blowing. Would highly recommend!!

If you have any interest in art or culture, and you are visiting Bilbao, you have to come here. It's possible to get combined ticket to see Bilbao Fine Arts Museum which is well worth a day of museum strolling.

Beautiful museum, thought provoking and more than lived up to expectations. The iconic external appearance is suitably complemented with the layout and artworks inside (and out). A must see for Bilbao, The Basque Country and the North of Spain.

Visited the Guggenheim in Bilbao on vacation with my wife. The building was spectacular! The interior architecture is interesting, but the exterior views are amazing. The art displayed, other than "Water Lillies" was fine, but not special. The entire second floor was devoted to film...More

Frank Gehry's flagship building and surroundings offer a lot to the visitor. However if you are not a modern art buff you'll be disappointed with the exhibits.
