The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is the result of an unprecedented partnership between the Basque Institutions and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. One of the priorities of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is to promote education and as such, to foster informal, interdisciplinary, and highly interactive experiences.

The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is part of an international constellation of museums, which allows it to access an extensive Permanent Collection comprised from all the works in the Guggenheim collections, including the Bilbao holdings.

Designed by US architect Frank Gehry, the Museum building is a large sculpture made of titanium, limestone, and glass, and has become the most recognizable icon of the city of Bilbao. The exhibition galleries, some boasting surprising shapes, others with orthogonal configurations, are organized around a spectacular Atrium, crowned with a metalic flower over its skylight. The complex and mutually enriching dialogue between the art exhibited and the architecture of the building, and the versatility of the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao spaces favor a unique museum experience.
