The Guggenheim museum was brilliant, apart from the building looking fantastic and the giant spider outside, the inside was great as it was interactive in many ways. My three year old boy thought it was brilliant and didn’t want to leave. Easy to go round...More

This is an iconic building worth a journey. The art is a matter of taste and may not be everyone’s cup of tea. The number of works on display was fewer than we expected. The best exhibit is the building. Prices were typical for the...More

What else? A must do in Bilboa. Picasso, Manet, Van Gogh, Renoir, Monet, Matisse, Rousseau, Cezanne & Giacometti..., to name a few! Advance online ticket purchase is suggested. It’s relatively small, so 2-3 hours is sufficient. There are audio guides available w/ online advance ticket...More

This was on my bucket list and now one of my favourite galleries and spaces. Excellently curated, curiously laid out and beautiful views inside and out and let’s not forget a giant dog in flowers gracing the forcourt. Loved the eclectic art and excellent descriptions....More

Absolutely amazing, Definitely the museum that defines the city. Marvellous buiding, excellent exhibits. I was lucky enough to see the Vasconcelos exhibits the day I visited the museum.

This is an indoor and outdoor experience and you really have to do both. The building design and construction is so interesting and cool. An incredible puppy, poppys, fog and more and then you enter the building and are just blown away. By the way,...More

I have wanted to see the Guggenheim in Bilbao for such a long time and it was worth the wait. The building itself is spectacular. Not a straight line in sight and lots of little nooks and crannies to explore. We walked over the footbridge...More

The Guggenheim is what brought us to Bilbao. Gehry buildings abound in the world and we have seen many. Both the outdoor space and indoor space are wonderful with fun things to see. The cafe was excellent and no need to enter the museum to...More

You can save a whole euro booking online. I had mixed views of the pieces on view - some were excellent but I didn't really enjoy quite a lot of it.
