Great work of architecture and engineering! A beautiful building!. Audio was also very good explaining all about art works and the building. Second floor was closed due to some work when we visited the museum. The puppy is so cute. If you are in Bilbao,...More

Frank Gehry was a master architect! This building rocks, but the exhibits are just ok! Marvel at his talent and how the museum pays respect to the city's history!

Unfortunately the museum was closed as we visited on a Monday out of season but the building with the installations outside were so spectacular that we weren't disappointed by just walking around the outside. It really is a fantastic place!

The best feature of this museum is the building and its location. The exhibits available on the day of our visit were not extraordinary. The cafe is quite pleasant. The setting along the river and the sculptures around it, as well as the nearby bridge...More

Cheaper than most. Concession 6€, but just as well as the halls are large spaces with at times sparse exhibits. I understand that space can enhance exhibits but some are minimised...the prints for example. The sensory gallery I did not enter as I have asthma...More

I visited on a group tour. I’m not a lover of modern art but the building itself was worth the visit. Plus we had a gorgeous day!

OK, maybe I’m a total visual art neophyte, but... The building itself is incredible architecture and that in itself is worth the 10 euros to visit. But I think they could have filled it up with exhibits better than for example a chair suspended by...More

I think the weather is always decent in this region, probably very hot in the Summer. It was warm in March.
