A simply amazing building and great setting! Some of the exhibits were mind blowing while some were the kind that made me scratch my head. Definitely worth a visiting.

We were very disappointed in the Museum. It is absolutely amazing architecturally and fantastic photo shoot from outside. It's a lovely setting on the river with a lovely walkway, But the exhibitions inside were very minimal, with nothing on the second floor, and lifts that...More

This is a building that you need to see from the inside. Overall it is excellent, but didn't impress us like the Disney symphony hall in Los Angeles. Perhaps we are getting too familiar with Gehry's work (visited the city of wine hotel a few...More

To an extent I have to echo what I have heard other people say - that the building outstrips the art that's exhibited in it. It is so startlingly beautiful and creative and amusing and the mixtures of materials and textures are so aesthetic in...More

a visit to the Guggenheim is probably a "must do", easy to find and move around. The art and displays may not be to everyone's liking, however some of the pieces we saw were quite unusual. Onsite (outside) café is expensive, however Bistro has excellent...More

We especially went to Bilbao to see this building, and it was incredible. Unfortunately it was raining while we were there, which maybe didn't show off the cladding to best advantage, but still great. The main show, taking up the most space, was of Abstract...More

We had a good time at the Guggenheim, unfortunately the 2nd floor was closed for renovations and therefore fewer pieces were available to viewing. The remaining floors seemed to stress the post-immpressionists and mid-century modern artists. An audible guide it provided in various languages and...More

The building itself is a great combination of limestone, glass and titanium. We went to see the exhibition Paris- Fin de Siecle with paintings by Signac, Toulouse -Lautrec and many others. We also admired Puppy - 13m high flower statue by Jeff Koons. After the...More

We will be staying in San Sebastián for a few days in May. It looks as if we could drive to Bilbao in not much more than an hour? How easy would it be to park near the Guggenheim?

Unable to answer your question as we were staying in Bilbao & did no use the car to the museum. However you may want to check on the Guggenheim Museum to see if they give you some information regarding parking. Insofar as... More
I'm trying to decide if I should book a guided tour led by a person, or simply use the audio tour you get for free. Can anyone provide feedback on either experience? I love modern art.

The audio guide was very extensive. If you wanted to listen to every single one, you will easily spend 6 hours there. And they cover most of the famous paintings. The audio guide are included in the ticket no extra charge
We will be coming to Bilbao by cruise ship and would like to know the distance from port to museum and the best way to get there.
