What is the Guggenheim Museum?

Designed by famed Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry, the Guggenheim Museum is undoubtedly the main attraction that draws visitors to Bilbao.

This impressive titanium-clad landmark, which shimmers in the Spanish sunlight, opened in 1997 and is now one of the most iconic buildings in the country.

Bilbao is re-born

Prior to the museum's opening, Bilbao was in something of a post-industrial depression.

This modern and contemporary art museum marked the beginning of a regeneration that essentially put Bilbao on the map thanks to the building's innovative, eye-catching design.

With thousands of works on display within and without, it's worth dedicating a few hours to visiting the museum.
