A rather beautiful structure housing a wonderful exposition on David Hockney. Inside the building on multiple floors was a pleasure to get through.

You can’t go to Bilbao and not visit this museum but some of the exhibits were too conceptual for me. The cheaper senior ticket seems available to all with proof of age

A great building - magnificent architecture and worth the visit to see that alone and look around and inside the building. But some of the exhibits were a little weird for our taste. The old masters was the best part. The rest we didn't stay...More

This is a "must visit" when in Bilbao. Even if you are not at all interested in arts, the building is amazing. If you do appreciate art, the museum holds a number of very interesting exhibitions.

Beautiful architecture building !! Amazing spaces and so much to see. We spent 4 hours at the museum enjoying the art displays, artefacts and sculptures around the building. This is an enjoyment for all ages! Our son, 9 years old really enjoyed the experience.

This collection of "art" just goes to prove the old saying "art is whatever you can get away with" - most of it is complete rubbish and anyone who tries to tell you otherwise has obviously re-read "The Emperors New Clothes" recently!

I think the weather is always decent in this region, probably very hot in the Summer. It was warm in March.
