“Small but worth you time”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 via mobile

This museum has an interesting, high quality collection. It is definitely worth a visit. It is quite near the Guggenheim so you would have time for at least a quick visit.

“Bilbao is not only Guggenheim”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

Very interesting modern art collection. Art collection maybe better than in Guggenheim. Although Guggenheim museum building is one of the most finest in the world.
