About the tour

STEPPING BY STEP THE GUGGENHEIM BILBAO MUSEUM: ITS ORIGINS, ITS ARCHITECTURE, ITS GLOBAL IMPACT, PART OF ITS COLLECTIONS. 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? Who gives it a name? What is the so called Guggenheim effect? What is behind its forms? What is the significance of the works that surround the exterior of the museum?

Surely you have asked yourself these and other questions many times. We will answer them for you and resolve any doubts you may have about one of the world icons of contemporary architecture. We have been guiding visitors from all over the world for almost twenty years, we became guides walking through its galleries, 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 you to enter the building, because the visit will never be complete if you do not do it and we are sure that you will not regret it. But if you cannot afford it, you are hesitating whether to do it or not, or you simply do not have time, we will tell you its secrets step by step, scale by scale, on a 360º tour around its perimeter, from all points of view.

It will forever change the way you look at it.

PRACTICAL INFORMATION -Groups of max. 20 pax. Because we do not want you to miss any of our explanations and because we believe that a close treatment will improve your experience during the tour.
