What to Do in Bilbao During the Day

Guggenheim Museum

Guggenheim Museum

You’ll struggle to read any article, guide or story about 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 architectural masterpiece has attracted millions of tourists to the Basque capital to see this truly spectacular monument. Shaped like a gigantic ship, whale or Marilyn Monroe’s skirt in The Seven Year Itch (depending on the observer), the Guggenheim is widely acknowledged as one of the most important architectural buildings in modern times. Inside, the museum is equally impressive showcasing works from some of the 20th and 21st century’s finest artists, including Picasso and Andy Warhol.
