Museo Guggenheim Bilbao

in detail

As one of the cornerstones of the Guggenheim Museum Network, and a symbol of the Basque Country's vitality, we hope to promote an understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of art and its values in an iconic architectural setting.
The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao was inaugurated in 1997 as a part of a revitalization plan for the city of Bilbao. From the time the museum opened its doors, it has been an important tourist attraction, captivating the interest of visitors from around the world and earning its place as the city's centerpiece of modern architecture.
The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao's entire permanent collection is exhibited in a dynamic fashion through various displays aimed at providing the public with different perspectives on the history of art.
Guggenheim Bilbao Museum
The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, designed by North American architect Frank O. Gehry, is a magnificent example of the most groundbreaking architecture to have come out of the 20th century. The building itself is an innovatively designed architectural landmark that creates a seductive backdrop for the exhibition of contemporary art.
