Visited the Guggenheim on a day trip to Bilbao...it is the must see. Magnificent visual impact from all around, testament to its unique design, placement and context. Spent a couple of hours viewing some rather unusual and interesting exhibits.

It lived up to the billing. The building itself is a work of art but there is plenty to see inside as well. During my visit, there was a really interesting exhibition which was weird but cool. If you go for the double ticket with Museo de Bellas Artes, then it's great value.

What an amazing building, worth visiting for the Jeff Koons puppy alone. Guggenheim staff very friendly and helpful.

I thought the architecture of the building both outside and inside were stunning. Well worth a visit when in Bilbao.
As for the art works well that's more a question of personal taste.
I personally loved the exhibition space with the massive metal sheets that you could walk around and between.

visited the guggenheim and totally loved it!
we did think the entrance fee of €13.00 was a little expensive, but it did include a good audio guide.
we didn't find the map in the small booklet provided that easy to use, and got lost a few times, but it didn't matter too much!
had a table booked at the bistro for lunch and had to come out of the museum for that (wrist-
band provided for re-entry).
we thought the art works were great, but also thought it was a shame that there was no photography, except in the public areas.
the building itself eclipsed the art for us, (apart from the picasso bull's head!) and we really enjoyed being there.
we would recommend a whole day-trip to the museum/environment as it's so big! and would also recommend the bistro (see separate review for this).
