Museum Monday – Guggengheim Bilbao

If you don’t know the Guggengheim Bilbao museum by name, you’ll certainly recognize it for its fabulously unique architecture!

Located in Bilbao, Basque Country, Spain, the Guggengheim Bilbao museum was designed by Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry.

A few years back Steve and Jill took Mimi and Carter to Spain on vacation and to give them an opportunity to experience the Guggengheim Bilbao museum firsthand.

One of Steve’s favorite artists, Anselm Kiefer, has an amazing collection on exhibit at the Guggengheim Bilbao museum, and it was wonderful to see so much of it, all in one place.

Mimi and Carter enjoyed the Richard Serra exhibit, “The Matter of Time,” most, as they were able to walk through it and look for details, as opposed to just standing and looking at a painting in one place. Not only did this open the door to great museum conversation, they were also able to stretch their legs a bit.

Jeffrey KoonsIf you ever get the chance to visit Bilbao, Spain, be sure to add the Guggenheim to your list of must-do’s when there! And be sure to make time to take in all the outside exhibits by masters such as Louise Bourgeois and Jeffery Koons, as well as that renowned architecture!

And don’t forget to try some authentic Basque cuisine – it’s not to be missed!
