If you want to know the real history of the museum, where it should be located or why Bilbao was chosen as the city for the Guggenheim, this is your tour. It is a 120-minute tour of the exterior of the museum, starting at the first building built in the 19th century where the museum was chosen to be integrated, and ending at its current location. If you are not a lover of contemporary and avant-garde art, we will not enter its rooms, but we will take an outside tour of its most significant works as well as the facilities that you cannot miss to see, feel and enjoy.
Now a symbol of the new Bilbao, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is one of the most ambitious cultural projects of the 21st century. Designed by the Canadian Frank O. Gehry, the building is a fantastic ship-like structure made of stone, titanium and glass.
The Guggenheim Museum has its own unique collection, while complementing the collections of the other Guggenheim institutions. The Museum's holdings include works by some of the most important artists of the second half of the 20th century, such as Eduardo Chillida, Yves Klein, Willem de Kooning, Robert Motherwell, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, ClyffordStill, Antoni Tàpies and Andy Warhol, to name but a few.
