Discover Bilbao & the Guggenheim Museum

Since the opening in 1997, the Guggenheim Bilbao and Puppy - a floral sculpture of a dog by Jeff Koons, located outside the museum - have become the most internationally-known symbols of Bilbao. They form part of the collection of works by great figures in the world of art: David Salle, Chillida, Jeff Koons, Louis Bourgeois and Robert Rauschenberg are just a few examples. Designed by the American architect Frank O. Gehry, this avant-garde building is a magnificent place to display masterpieces of modern and contemporary art. You simply cannot miss this brilliant, curvaceous masterpiece of flowing titanium and limestone. The organic form gives a nod to Bilbao's heritage with its suggestion of maritime shapes, sails and fish scales. Explore the Guggenheim's changing exhibits of modern art from its vast collection.

Travel today from the ship on a panoramic drive to the Guggenheim Museum. Your guided exploration will share with you some of the treasures as well having some free time to discover the museum at your own pace.
