This is the "other" art museum in Bilbao set on the edge of a park near the Melia Hotel. The exhibition space was very well organised. The 110 years 100 works exhibition, which covers 13th century to the present and continues until mid-September, is well...More

The collection guides the visitor through the history of painting from early modern painting till now. Nice to see the representation of some Basque paintors as well. The museum is located in a beautiful building.

Great museum. We spend 4 hours there. The 110 years exhibition was interresting, we learned about Spanish and Basque artists. The video exhibition at the topfloor is worth going for.

Don't miss Nemesio Mogrobejo's sculptures. More than life like: they are beyond real. The museum put together the best 106 works of art they presently hold: giving you a chance to get an overview without getting overwhelmed (they hold >10,000 works of art!)

Spent a morning here with my teenage daughter. Interesting mix of art styles, with many by famous artists. Some of the modern exhibits were a matter of personal taste, but did stimulate debate! There is a good café on-site, and similar cafes in the very...More
