Beautiful and unusual building, well worth the visit just for that. Inside - we we just didn't get it. Pretentious so-called art that didn't warrant the entrance fee. Disappointed visit but I guess others might think differently. Like to think we are open minded about art but this was just silly!

While a grand work of complex architecture if seen on its own, the Bilbao Guggenheim offers a compelling venue for exhibitions. Flying balconies connecting exhibit rooms across multiple towers and levels leads one to feel as if visiting multiple galleries totally unlike a typical museum composed of unending array of linked rooms. From every new angle and perspective new forms and designs come to visual attention. Without a comparable construction all we can say is that a visit to Bilbao is in order to experience this wondrous museum.

Everything about the Guggenheim is great, the building from every angle is worth a visit alone. Took many photos outside and enjoyed the exhibitions too. Definitely want to return to this amazing museum. It's one of the best in the world and is the perfect size for a half-day visit.

I found the building more interesting than the collection inside.
I liked "the matter of time"of Richard Serra. It tickled your senses.
The rest of the collection, e.g. George's Braque and Yoko Ono, was not that interested for me.

I loved the building, the way the outside curves and flows. And the inside architecture is nice as well, but some of the artwork, like the title says, you either love it or hate it. I was quite fond of most things, but most of the Yoko Ono exhibition wasn't for me. You can get student discount here as well, so make sure to bring your student card.
