Very impressed with this museum, chock full of important works of 20th century artists, both local and international. Picasso to Mimmo Palladino, lots of good Antoni Tapies, and some Charles Moore in the garden...all in a good modernist addition to the historic neoclassical museum.

It may not be the first art museum you visit in Bilbao but its definitely one of the best! It was Wednesday so free - a bonus point - and there is a great cloakroom for leaving all the bags and relaxing. I loved the Japanese art exhibit. The staff were very helpful to me and it has a nice cafe for a break. I enjoyed it and would recommend a call.

Go just to see this Museum, be sure to walk around and look at it from every side. You could be the worst photographer and still take amazing pictures from where ever you stand in any weather.

It is only a few minutes walk from the Guggenheim. Nice collection from the early middleages till modern art. You may spend some hours in this museum and enjoy every minute. A must see exhibition.

The museum was crowded...the A/C did not work well but the art work was displayed nicely and in good lighting...a bit disappointed in ability to see and relax while viewing
