Do this because
  • Admire the chrome exterior of the museum designed by Frank Gehry

  • Learn the ideas behind Richard Serra's Expressionist masterpieces
What to expect

Greet your knowledgeable guide outside the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum and begin your tour admiring the eccentric exterior of the museum; designed by Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry, the distinctive structure caused quite a stir among European architects upon completion. Capture photographs beside the 39 foot (12 meter) sculpture of a Puppy, a colossal canine made entirely from flowers, and then enter the museum.

Discuss your personalized itinerary then listen as your qualified, art-expert guide directs your attention to some of the gallery’s most significant masterpieces; see varied examples of art from a collection that spans from the middle of the 20th century to the present day. Admire the aesthetics of art scattered over three floors and appreciate the artful lighting and creative arrangement of the exhibitions.

Gain insight into the inspiration behind theatrical installations such as Joseph Beuy’s Lightning with Stag in its Glareb, and peruse pieces from painting pioneers such as Jenny Holzer, Richard Long and Francesco Clemente. Engage with tales of the antics of famous Basque artists and note how the surrounding landscape has inspired some of the pieces.

After 1.5-hours of exploration, bid farewell to your guide and continue to explore the museum independently if you desire.
