  • If you have to stay in Bilbao two days or more, worth knowing this museum. But the collection is quite modest compared to the Guggenheim. Is for those who really like art. If you can go to 2, let the Guggenheim for later, or the fine arts won't have much fun.

  • Good art but overzealous staff
  • Very spacious museum with high ceilings and frequently changing expositions. Tickets are 7 euros. The museum closes at 8 pm so make sure you spend some time here before you go to dinner.
  • Extremely basic. Sure their art is worth seeing but the old tradition of not being able to take pictures just have to go. It just suck not being able to tell friends and family where you think they should go and show it.
  • Very decent building, plane and tasteful
  • Great gallery. Better than Guggenheim.
