Interesting visit even if you're not that into art as the building is just so incredible! Easy to wander around without a formal guide. The bistro is wonderful too.

If you are traveĺling to Bilbao, certainly you heard about this wonderful museum. The architecture is stunning. When we were there in June, there was a temporary exhibition of end of 19th century French painters alongside many other more modern displays. It is not surprising...More

Far and near, this Frank Gehry's designed museum does not disappoint - near the riverbank just outside of the museum are installations by big named artists that are worth visiting. Inside exhibition and permanent collection are less attractive with an expensive admission.

Spent a couple of hours here and loved it. Costs 13 euros but only 7.50 euros for seniors, I used my Senior Railcard. It looks stunning from the outside and lots of glass and huge open spaces inside. Lots of modern artwork and sculptures to...More

We loved our visit to the museum. Totally agree that the building is spectacular, but also really enjoyed the exhibitions too. The autoguidé isn't necessary, and in many ways distracts from experiencing the art. Very pleased to have had the opportunity to see this wonderful...More

The museum building is, of course, unusual and visually stunning. The collections of the museum inside - not so much. Here the main attraction is the building itself and not the collections of the museum. It is a shame that such an architectural wonder is...More

The magnificent titanium glad Frank Gehry designed Guggenheim Museum was inaugurated in 1997 and dominates the bank on a bend in the Nervion River. From the exterior the building is a mass of different shapes, heights and angles and, on the exterior riverbank, has several...More

The Guggenheim has been on our bucket list for quite some time. We are big fans of the architect Frank Gehry, and we slowly but surely have visited many of his buildings. Clearly the Guggenheim did not disappoint. It was even more stunning than expected....More

A visit to the museum is a must, so much to see. The steel constructions were interesting. The old masters were lovely to view

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.
