Time Needed To Tour Guggenheim

How much time should we allow to tour the Guggenheim in Bilbao? Is there a tour, in English, about the architecture of the building and the collections/exhibits?

One to two hours. I don't think you need a guide. There is an excellent restaurant where you can have an inexpensive lunch (modern Basque cuisine) before walking around. An excellent tip given to me by the owner of our hostal.

VW:

You can see everything in 2 hours, and you do not need a guide or a tour.

Very concise: from one hour (minimum) to a maximum of three (it also depends on your interest on the exhibitions). Yes, there´s both a guide service in English and audio guides.

Being someone who looks at everything in great details, it took me about 1 1/2 hrs to see the Gugg. Worth checking out the Fine Arts Museum as well. Spent nearly 4hrs there.
