We had high expectations and somehow these were exceeded. Our 8 year old daughter loved it and we (3 adults) were all stunned by the beautiful works both inside and out. Highly recommended.

The Guggenheim museum is known now through the entire world. Not only because this prestigious name which links it with the New York museum, but more because its incredible architecture. The building is amazing and you could pass long time to tour it from outside......More

Outstanding display of excellent combination of place, architecture and collections. We were lucky to catch the temporary Chagall's show, will be definitely coming back for more. No need to book in advance. Photography not allowed inside, excellent gift shop.

We enjoyed our visit overall, but I can’t see spending more than a few hours here unless your drawn to a particular exhibit they may be having.

Guggenheim is centrally situated with multiple galleries within and outside space utilised. Used translated guides which were helpful in understanding some of the exhibits. Some exhibits were very inviting to participate and appreciate but others seem a little far away. Lots of people photographing exhibits...More

Inside is a little poor, not a lot of pieces. Definitely it's better outside, the puppy and the tulips are very nice.

First sight of the titanium-clad Guggenheim leaves you either inspired or cold. Our tour group had a quite late fixed entry time which limited our time to get around the various galleries. The limited number of albeit very attentive staff, made getting inside and kitted...More

I think so. This part of Bilbao is very easy to get around and you can take a tram direct from other parts of the city
