About the Tour

The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in detail: its origins, its architecture, its global impact, its collections and more.


Brief description of the tour:

 What makes the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao one of the most influential buildings of our era? Why was it built in Bilbao? Where does the name come from? What is the Guggenheim effect? What is behind its shapes? What is the meaning of the works that surround the exterior of the museum?

 You have surely asked yourself these and other questions many times. We answer them and solve all the doubts you may have about one of the world icons of contemporary architecture.

 We have been guiding visitors from all over the world through its galleries for almost twenty years, we became guides walking through them, we have studied more than 100 temporary exhibitions and the museum's own funds. Few know its secrets like we do.

 We will always recommend that you get to know it inside, because the visit will never be complete if you do not, and we are sure that you will not regret it. But if you can't afford it, you're hesitating whether to do it or not, or you simply don't have time, we'll tell you step by step, scale by scale, in a 360º tour around its perimeter, from all points of view.

 It will change the way you look at it forever.
