This building helped to kickstart the regeneration of the city center of Bilbao which is now a really nice city.

Wonderful museum - pictures don't do it justice inside or out. Be sure to see it from every direction and at different times of day. Lots of exhibits inside are very large so it doesn't take as long as one might guess to see it all. Excellent restaurant inside - reservations recommended.

This is a really no brainer when you're in Bilbao. We were happy enough to be there at the same time of the impressing Francis Bacon exposition.

Preboked tickets (actually had to put in a Madrid postcode in spite of choosing UK as residential address, computer blip) for two on a Nov afternoon. No crowds, cloak room available, amazing space. Once inside, just worked our way from Ground floor multilingual installation upwards. There is a lot, not only a little, for all and everyone. Francis Bacon, Picasso,... More

The temporary expositions are allways interesting, specially when they come from the Guggenheim collection. The permanent expositions, such as the Richard Serra on the ground floor are time consuming but totally worth it.

Between the art and the building you can't beat it. The Francis Bacn exhibit was wonderful and I love the Richard Serra sculpture room. I'd come back to visit the next time I'm in town! And the audioguide was fantastic!

I love this museum building. The building itself is a piece of art that worth spending time exploring. The interior galleries were very well designed and perfect for the art displayed.

We were on a Cosmos "Gems of Italy, France & Spain" tour, this was a stop for an outside visit of the Guggenheim. We were not disappointed with the outside view, amazing sculptures, art works even the bridge was visually attractive.
