Short Stop At the Guggenheim Museum In Bilbao

A trip to the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao is an absolute must if in Spain. Even if it is just a drive by, the museum’s design alone is worth seeing as it is often regarded as “the greatest building of our time.”

The main reason for the museum being built in Bilbao was to revitalize the city’s economy.This has been a success so far as the museum has attracted a huge influx of tourists. However, the project hasn’t gone without criticism as many argued that it gentrified the city.

The Guggenheim Museum is one of the architectural wonders of our time. Each side is a different and intricate design.

In the front there is a tall and colorful flower bed in the shape of a puppy. Pretty cool! I wonder how they plant it and coordinate the colors.

Unfortunately, due to time restrictions I was unable to go inside the museum but to be quite frank I content just examining the architectural work of the building.  If I do say so, most tourist visit to see the design of the building rather than the artwork inside.
