Guggenheim Museum Bilbao

An incredible, memorable, Frank Gehry designed architectural marvel, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao features in any self-respecting list of the world’s best architecture, and as a defining moment in the history of architecture. But this is also a leading destination for art and design. The permanent collection, as a jewel in the Guggenheim crown, feature such timeless all-stars as Anselm Kiefer, Richard Serra, Jenny Holzer, Willem de Kooning, and Mark Rothko.


The changing exhibitions are equally as exciting, with blockbuster retrospectives, site specific responses to the Gehry space by up and coming artists, and thematic shows responding to genres through history, this is a consistently reliable destination for the world’s best art, that really needs no introduction.


Come for Gehry’s unmistakable Desconstructivist building, but stay for the world class displays inside.
