Top 3 Things To Do In Bilbao

Guggenheim Museum


You’ll struggle to read any article or guidebook on Bilbao that doesn’t include at least a passing reference to the Guggenheim Museum; that is, unless it pre-dates 1997.

Since then, Frank Gehry’s masterpiece has attracted hordes of tourists to the Basque country. Shaped like a gigantic ship, a whale or even Marilyn Monroe’s skirt in The Seven Year Itch (depending on the observer), the Guggenheim is recognized as one of the most important modern architectural buildings. Inside, the museum is equally impressive with works from some of the 20th and 21st century’s finest artists, including Picasso and Andy Warhol.
