Owner description: American architect Frank Gehry is responsible for this architectural masterpiece: this fantastic chrome and metal creation houses a large collection of modern and contemporary art, a continuation of the Guggenheim legacy.
Reviewed 6 April 2018

The museum is beautiful outside and inside. Only downside is that the security inside is like the nasty police. No pictures and they have no sense of humor.

On the other hand, the exhibits were excellent and well explained in all languages. The write-ups were very authentic and informative and it will lead you to deeper research on some of the artists. The total tour is helped by the audio guide - short and to the point to get deeper into areas of interest.

Incredible building, great art, lots of space, all different cultures around and school trips. Great to see children at the museum rather than on phones etc.

Huge building with some pieces of ‘art’ requiring lengthy jumble of words to explain the meaning behind them.

The building is very special and has wonderful architectural beauty.
A must see. Also the surrounding area is nice. A broad boulevard with street artists and many people taking a walk.

Went to Bilbao with the Guggenheim very high on the agenda and it didn’t disappoint. What a fabulous building! So many areas to look and so fascinating to see the contrasts of materials and shapes. Look up, look down and look around. Absolutely amazing.
Looking through different windows and over balconies and observing how the gallery goers interact with the art installations (particularly Richard Serra’s) is wonderful. The public become part and parcel of the installation.
Allow about 2 hours to wander and take it all in.
