I've been itching to visit the Guggenheim since it opened to such fanfare more than 20 years ago! And does it ever live up to its billing! We spent a whole day there and came back a second just to eat in the restaurant and walk around the outside. It made me such a Frank Gehry fan that we visited the Marques de Riscal winery outside Laguardia that he did. Both are decidedly worth going to Northern Spain to visit!

Loved it! The architecture is breathtaking!
Calcullate at least 1.5 - 2 hours for insinde and 1 hour to circle it from outside!

Also food and service at the Bistro was excellent!

An exciting building extremely well set on its location. The outside experience is almost as good as the inside. The interior lobby spaces are brilliant and well defined to handle large crowds. I found the galleries in general a disappointment. The rooms themselves were dull and unevenly lit. But the art is amazing. Do order your tickets on line in advance. Lines can be long.

The Guggenheim museum was brilliant, apart from the building looking fantastic and the giant spider outside, the inside was great as it was interactive in many ways. My three year old boy thought it was brilliant and didn’t want to leave. Easy to go round with a toddler and the art was interesting for both young and old alike.
It is situated in a great place by the river and we went back every day just to have a coffee and cake outside whilst my boy played in the well kept adventure playgrounds nearby.

This is an iconic building worth a journey. The art is a matter of taste and may not be everyone’s cup of tea.

The number of works on display was fewer than we expected. The best exhibit is the building.

Prices were typical for the experience and the cafe was great and reasonably priced.

What else? A must do in Bilboa. Picasso, Manet, Van Gogh, Renoir, Monet, Matisse, Rousseau, Cezanne & Giacometti..., to name a few! Advance online ticket purchase is suggested. It’s relatively small, so 2-3 hours is sufficient. There are audio guides available w/ online advance ticket purchase. That is suggested. A private guide is possible, but not necessary. It’s a very nice museum, not my favorite or the best, though a must do in Bilboa. Enjoy.

One of the floors was closed during our visit, but despite that, the collection was diverse, tactile, fun and inspiring. Several installations were interactive, which made it that much more interesting. Add to all that, the city views are great too. Get there as early as possible, though, as it gets really crowded around noon.

This was on my bucket list and now one of my favourite galleries and spaces. Excellently curated, curiously laid out and beautiful views inside and out and let’s not forget a giant dog in flowers gracing the forcourt. Loved the eclectic art and excellent descriptions. Not too crowded and not too big. The sculptures surrounding the museum are beautiful and for the landscape - a mesmerising walk.

Absolutely amazing, Definitely the museum that defines the city. Marvellous buiding, excellent exhibits. I was lucky enough to see the Vasconcelos exhibits the day I visited the museum.
