A symbol of Bilbao

Designed by the American architect Frank O. Gehry, this avant-garde building is a magnificent place to display masterpieces of modern and contemporary art.

Since its opening in 1997, the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum 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. The Guggenheim Bilbao Museum also offers a series of activities for visitors who wish to broaden their knowledge of art.
