For me it was all about the building

The building is a marvellous feat. Some of the exhibits were good..Jeff Koons was great but a lot of it went straight over my head

Whilst a truly amazing building... an architectural gem... as a cutting edge museum for its contents as you might expect, it is quite a letdown. Added to which there is quite a hefty entrance fee, often long queues to get in...and once inside you can be notified that a whole floor can be closed off. Unless you know in advance... More

The corner stone of the change in Bilabao, beautiful building, inside and out, located on the river bank brings great views all around, loved the sculptures outside the building as well. Store is surprisingly not to expensive. After the museum you must go for a walk on the river bank

Not all the exhibits were available, as a new one was being added, but there is plenty to see. The entry fee was only 13 Euros per person which included the audio tour, and it's possible to go out and return later in the day as the tickets are good for 24 hours. It's a large, spacious iconic museum, easy... More

I attended a motor/car exhibition there and loved it. For art/cultural types this is the place to go when in Spain. Even an unplanned journey can be very interesting. I've done this when in town and nearly missed my flight. So be careful this place is hypnotising.

The Guggenheim is an impressive structure...a must see when in Bilbao. Most of the exhibits, except for the classical paintings, are wierd to say the least.

Chose not to go inside, after all the building is famous for its architecture and design on the outside. Take a walk around the building and take in its interesting design

The permament exhibition itself deserves a visit, so the temporary collections add a plus. Walking around the magnificient building, if weather allows is highly recommended.

Visited last year around July and it was a really great experience. You should make sure to go early so as to avoid the long lines that can form in the middle of the day. The architecture is obviously unique and the installations inside of the museum are of the modern art variety. They had a Basquiat exhibit during my... More
