Bilbao The Guggenheim Museum Excursion Reviews

The Guggenheim Museum -- designed by Frank Gehry -- essentially put Bilbao on the map and contemporary art-lovers would be remiss not to visit it during a port stop in this Spanish city.
The museum is awesome.

The museum is awesome. Modern Art. The walk through the town square was pleasant and there was so much to see.

Incredible building.

Incredible building. Photographs or descriptions cannot do it justice. It overshadowed the art which is saying something.

Pleasant tour as singleton to Guggenheim Museum and old quarter with chatty and informative tour guide lady leading the group of approx 50 from the Port . Some confusion re meeting up places resulted in me nearly losing them - luckily all turned out ok in the end and they were looking for me- sorry folks . Guggenheim is somewhat overrated for the ordinary of us, the arty types may like it much more. Read Less

We had a guided walk around the old town, with a good English speaking guide. The museum I knew wasn't going to be to my taste for the exhibits, but I had chosen to go to look at the architecture inside and outside and to take photos, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Well timed tour and about right for the money. Read Less

For the amount of time that we had to visit Bilbao, the excursion gave us an nice overview. Our guide was outstanding! She provided us with a wealth of information about the history, customs, and socioeconomics of the area. We did not have an abundance of time to visit the Guggenheim, but given that I am not an aficionado of modern art, it was sufficient. Read Less
