This museum is the typical unique work of Frank Gerry with good exterior art and stucture design. The interior art is minimal.

Supposedly the 3rd largest museum in Spain, it has a huge collection of Spain artists (except Picasso, who only has one small print work in the museum), both back in 12th center and modern ones.

The Guggenheim is obviously the museum destination in Bilbao. Not far away, at the edge of the nearby park is the Fine Arts Museum. The paintings and sculptures span from the Middle Ages to contemporary. This museum is definitely worth several hours of your time...More

A good selection of fine art from Renaissance period onwards. The Spanish painters are well represented of course. Goya and el Greco were my faves.
