If you are visiting Bilbao you would be mad not to go. Studying the outside can keep you busy fro an hour or so and inside there are lots of very interesting installations. Some are interactive and some are just immense.

I still remember Pierce Brosnan jumping infront of the Guggenheim in The World Is Not Enough. The Building is Spectacular during the day and during the night and there is nothing like it in the world.

You can save a whole euro booking online. I had mixed views of the pieces on view - some were excellent but I didn't really enjoy quite a lot of it.
