It’s hard to talk about Bilbao and not talk about the Guggenheim Museum; the city and the museum are forever fused together in the public perception, and for good reason. The Guggenheim was the center of the city wide revolution in Bilbao that transformed this once industrial shipyard into a tourism powerhouse. The museum is one of the first places I visited while here in Bilbao, and I continue to visit as there are rotating exhibitions. In addition, the museum is located right across the river from my university. I’m lucky enough to be able to see the museum every day on my way to class, and every day when I’m heading home.
