Stunning exterior in a wonderful location. The interior is a remarkable place, filled with light and open space. The fantastic spider which reached into every corridor and space was a wonder of creativity. Didn't like the Chinese exhibition there at present. However the other exhibits...More

The fantastic building which altered the whole city (although the actual economic effect was apparently overestimated) stands out in the northern part of Bilbao. It is truly impressive and, if you are into huge sheets of metal, beautiful. The city is now a mixture of...More

We spent a few hours at the Guggenheim and loved every minute. The installations were amazing and the building itself was a wonder. Don’t leave Bilbao without seeing it! We had pre-booked our tickets to avoid any lineups, although there really weren’t any lines when...More

So much to see it is very tiring but worth it. The architecture is outstanding but we disagreed with our guide book that the art inside could never add up - it too was amazing. Travel to Bilbao just for this alone if you don’t...More

Be there right after the morning opening to avoid queueing. Audioguides included in the price, no admittance with backpacks/bags, lockers available (for free). Take also your time to enjoy the outside of this unique mueum (e.g. spider in the mist).

Fascinating from the outside, a masterpiece of architecture. The inside is limited. I liked the section by Joana Vasconcelos!

...all of the camera's and security people are annoying as hell. They look like men-in-black, including an ear piece! And why? Because you can't photograph nor touch the art! I can understand this for canvas or fragile pieces. But it's unbelievable that some of the...More

OK. Where to start with this one? The Guggenheim museum is an amazing piece of architecture/art in its own right and for me that justifies a 4/5 star review by itself. I'm glad I've seen this place in person - well worth the visit from...More

If you’re curious about “modern art” then the G is a great place to immerse yourself in a huge variety of genres, techniques and, occasionally, the political environment from the artist’s perspective. In this case just play... More

We flew from BCN to Bilbao, you can get a bus from airport to the Guggenheim. The museum was very interesting and well done. We went on a free tour which was excellent and we tipped our guide well. We walked all over... More

I think so. This part of Bilbao is very easy to get around and you can take a tram direct from other parts of the city
