Well just don’t skip this opportunity. Even if you don’t enjoy art tour around the outside for free. You cannot fail to be impressed by the building. If you like contemporary art then it’s worth the entrance fee. Excellent Chagall exhibition. Also catch the local Basque art museum just down the road, free every day 18:00 to 20:00.

both inside and out this venue is worth the trip. expect to spend at least two hours or more just to get round it inside and out at a glance. very imaginative and creative and a wonderful setting for people watching and eating as well

You can't really say that you visted Bilbao without a trip to the Guggenheim...even a walk around the museum itself. There is a lot to see in the museum and a good few interactive pieces so you'd need between 2-3 hrs to complete the full tour. The main highlight for me was the "I'm your mirror" by Joana Vasconcelos. Wonderfully simple but powerful pieces of artwork. Just walking around the Guggenheim museum is a treat to the arts. There's lots of activities going on between the portoguese cockral ...to the moving fog over the pond. These interactive pieces take place on the hour (as far as I know) outside the actual Guggenheim. So if you don't get a chance to go to the museum itself... walk round it and you'll be guaranteed to take a few pictures of this magical space.

The outside of the museum is as much of an attraction as is the inside with Puppy, Mama and the big rooster outside

Let’s face it - this is a fugly museum, especially the Koons « art piece » in front. For some reason people seem to like it. Oh well.
