The most special building (in&out) that I have ever seen. If you have time, visit the museum inside. The building and the exhibitions are great.

The building is stunning, commanding an impressive riverside location and presenting many fascinating outdoor exhibits - like the F.O.G and Jeff Koons' puppy' But once inside I was underwhelmed. The building's layout makes navigation difficult and i thought the signage as poor. The atrium, and...More

Interesting building next to the river in a beautiful city. We enjoyed the exposition of Joana Vasconcelos’ art work. Plus the impressive work of Serra. The museum bistro/bar offered some nice sandwiches. The waiting time in line took quite a while. There were too many...More

The most stunning building. It is worth a visit just to look at it. We only saw the permanent collection but that is worth the entrance money by itself. We only went to Bilbao for the Guggenheim and it was worth it.

Bilbao is a fantastic city for a 2-3 day break. Even if it was not, it is worth visiting just for the Guggenheim. The building is fantastic and the exhibition - permanent or not - is marvellous. An absolute must.

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...More

I think so. This part of Bilbao is very easy to get around and you can take a tram direct from other parts of the city
