This is one of the main attractions drawing you to Bilbao, but do not overlook this great city. The architecture and permanent collection are outstanding. The staff is really helpful and friendly. The galleries are unusual and quiet except when groups come through. Plan on half a day minimum. They will give you a wristband if you care to take a break and have lunch at a nearby restaurant, then you can re-enter to finish your tour.

When getting the ferry from Bilbao you may as well give it a visit. Having just read Dan Brown "Origin" had to visit as the story starts here and s lot of things mention are real.
Glad the SatNav was directing as the motorway system is complex but once there the building as amazing sat on the bank of the river.
To me the building is the main event as a lot of what us call modern art is nothing more than art in the mind of the artist.
We managed to get the senior citizen entry price so the cost not to bad.
Nice cafe in the park before and after we went in.
Local underground car park not to expensive.

We went past the museum whilst on a bus from the airport. Can't comment on the interior but the building is a superb example of modern architecture. Wish we had time to visit..

I have seen many pictures of the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao prior to visiting but nothing beats seeing it for the fist time you visit the city arriving from the airport on the bus. Wow......impressive and the colour is much more richer than you think. Inside is spacious and contains many great exhibitions.....we saw a Chagall exhibition and many others. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the outside exhibits extraordinary. The surrounding area is fabulous too. We ate breakfast and lunch and both were tasty and excellent value. So relaxing and great atmosphere!

I am not into modern art. The exhibits were not very exciting. However, the artitecture of the building as well as the permanent outside exhibits were wonderful. They can be seen free of charge.
