When speaking about the Basque Country in the sphere of modern architecture, Guggenheim museum is the non beaten brand.

The building, made with a modern and vibrant shape in Titanium, glass and limestone is one of the references in contemporary art in Spain and in the world and it is one of my most popular private tours in Bilbao.

The building made by Frank Gehry hosts a permanent collection focused on art from the mid-20th century to the present with artwork from Eduardo Chillida (Basque artist), Yves Klein, Willem de Kooning, Robert Motherwell, Robert Rauschenberg, James Rosenquist, Clyfford Still, Antoni Tàpies, and Andy Warhol amongst others.

This is complemented by a series of temporary exhibits hold during the whole year that covers not only modern and contemporary art, but also ancient art, fashion, etc.

Of course Guggenheim Museum will be a sight not to be missed visit during your trip to Bilbao. Do you want a private & exclusive tour inside the Guggenheim Museum?
