Highly impressive, architectural-wonder of a building (the surroundings as well), but the art content left me a little bit numb.

Exceptional piece of Architecture by Frank O. Gehry. Don't miss the spider at the river by Louise Bourgois, the giant flower puppy by Jeff Koons you can't miss anyway. Plan a few hours for seeing the outside, at least one exhibition and continue to the old part of Bilbao.

Outstanding! Just outstanding place in terms of both architecture and exposition. I've spent over 3 hours wandering around this museum. Definitely a must-visit destination for arts and architecture lovers. Would love to come back!

The building is worth the visit on its own, and there are many vantage points, including numerous down by her across the river. Inside is just as impressive - both the architecture and the exhibits. My two minor gripes would be that I was expecting a few more exhibits - I think we viewed the entire collection in around 3... More

The building itself and the exhibits around are great. No being the greatest fan of art - I found the entrance fee quite high. The exhibits change regularly and it does bring in well known artist like Andy Warhol.

Incredible setting within the Guggenheim Museum. Elegant and modern styling. Fantastic menu options with something for everyone. Each dish was well presented and cooked to perfection. Reasonable regional wine selections. The wait staff were friendly, answered all questions fully and did not hover or rush yet were there when needed. Mid priced so not a budget buster especially considering the... More

Make sure you go inside too, even if you are not particularly interested in art. You don't visit the Bilbao Guggenheim to see the collection, you visit to see the building!
