Building is impressive from the outside . Entrance fee is $16 per person. You will have to deposit your bag if it is too large . Art work here are not too impressive . Layout of hall is not too friendly .

The Guggenheim is famous for the building, which is unusual and stunning. But the collection of Abstract Expressionist paintings is superb especially the Clyfford Stills, the deKoonings, and the Jackson Pollock exhibits although they lack a "knock out" Pollock and the best one is really...More

Definitely worth going in and checking out this crazy building with slanted walls and curves. The art changes a few times a year, we saw several famous contemporary paintings. Some selections required a great deal of imagination be the viewer, worth a look.

We will be staying in San Sebastián for a few days in May. It looks as if we could drive to Bilbao in not much more than an hour? How easy would it be to park near the Guggenheim?

I'm trying to decide if I should book a guided tour led by a person, or simply use the audio tour you get for free. Can anyone provide feedback on either experience? I love modern art.

The audio guide was very extensive. If you wanted to listen to every single one, you will easily spend 6 hours there. And they cover most of the famous paintings. The audio guide are included in the ticket no extra charge
We will be coming to Bilbao by cruise ship and would like to know the distance from port to museum and the best way to get there.
