The museum has been given a lot of publicity - the architecture is quite amazing although I/we were not totally certain that the same applied to the exhibits inside; itleft both of us with mixed feelings.

The Guggenheim is so interesting, we absolutely loved it. As you arrive in Bilbao and get a first glimpse it takes your breath away. The exhibits might not be your cup of tea but don't miss the experience of going inside and taking in this wonderful building.

Frank Gehry’s Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao is another unique place that shouldn't be missed. Beside the Museum collections, there are temporary exhibitions too. Not only exhibitions or the architecture of the building but also that part of the city are impressive. The museum is by the river, across the green hills. There is a peaceful wide pedestrian way along the river. The puppy statue which is placed in front of the museum and covered by flowers is another attractive part of the museum. The type of the flowers are changed depending on the season but it is always there.
It is easy to reach to the Museum; if you take the tram there is a tram station in front of of the museum (The tram line starts from the bus terminal ends at the end the old town). Also, it is possible to reach to the museum from the city center on foot in 15/20 minutes.
If the weather is good you will enjoy even more due to the perfect location of the museum.

The Guggenheim Museum is a highly recommended visit. The building outside is fascinating. The museum exhibits are interesting but do not reach the level of the building which is the biggest jewel of the museum.

Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is must see place. It is an modern art building with some fenomenal pieces of art in it. If you visit Bilbao and miss to visit Guggenheim, it`s just like you did not catch the essence of this proud city. In front of the museum is impresive puppy statue made of flowers.
