The Guggenheim Bilbao shows modern and contemporary art, mainly from the Guggenheim collections. Major 20th century artists on show include Kandinsky, Picasso, Braque, Miro, Pollock, Rothko and De Kooning. The gallery's huge spaces are particularly good for installation pieces. Frank Gehry's silver spaceship of a building is as postmodern and futuristic as the art it holds.

Two of the photos posted of the Guggenheim Bilbao are actually of a different Frank Gehry designed building--the Experience Music Project in Seattle, USA. You can clearly see the city's iconic Space Needle in the background of two of the photos.
