Greet your knowledgeable guide outside the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum and begin your tour by admiring the eccentric exterior of the museum; designed by Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry, the distinctive structure caused quite a stir among European architects upon completion. Capture photographs beside the 39-foot (12-meter) sculpture of Puppy, a colossal canine made entirely from flowers, and them enter the museum. 

Discuss your personalized itinerary then listen as your qualified, art-expert guide directs your attention to some of the gallery’s most significant masterpieces; see varied examples of art from a collection that spans from the mid-20th century to the present day. Admire the aesthetics of art scattered over three floors and appreciate the artful lighting and creative arrangement of the exhibitions. 

Gain insight into the inspiration behind theatrical installations such as Joseph Beuy’s Lightning with Stag in its Glareb, and peruse pieces from painting pioneers such as Jenny Holzer, Richard Long and Francesco Clemente. Engage with tales of the antics of famous Basque artists and note how the surrounding landscape has inspired some of the pieces. 

After your tour, bid farewell to your guide and continue to explore the museum independently if you desire.

Stunning Visit to the Guggenheim

We were amazed at the Guggenheim in Bilbao, and our tour guide Yolanda was excellent. Knowledgeable and personable, she enhanced our experience. And since we had originally planned to visit on a day when the museum is closed (Monday), and we had limited time, she worked with us so we could have a tour while in town. We are grateful!

Amazing!

Santiago, our guide, was absolutely fantastic! We had a private tour due to my husband’s walking disability. Santiago was waiting for us at the Puppy. He was so knowledgeable about the artists and structure of the building. His many interesting anecdotes about the structures, art, and artists made the tour very memorable. Our tour was supposed to be an hour and a half but Santiago did not rush us and we spent a full 2 hours with him.

Our tour guide gave us an exceptional personal tour that made great use of our hour and half. He was so well informed and educated on Bilbao and it's history. He had stories about all the artist, architects, finical backers and how they all came together. Simply amazing and so well worth the cost of the personal tour, it enriches the time you have in this unique one of kind Museum. Highly recommended.

Our guide Sebastian was excellent. He was extremely knowledgeable about the history of all the exhibits and he chose a perfect selection of things to show us. It was so much more enjoyable being able to ask him questions rather than just relying on a prerecorded tape.
