Hours and admission

Following the recommendations issued by health authorities and the directions of the Basque Government and the Provincial Council of Biscay, the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao will close temporarily to visitors effective March 14 until further notice as a way to contribute to contain the spread of COVID-19.

For the Museum, the safety of our visitors, our staff, and our collaborators is a top priority. In this context and as a precaution, all programs and activities have already been canceled. The Museum’s website offers timely information of any changes that may occur.

While the Museum is closed to visitors, staff members continue working internally in order to accompany the public in these challenging times, increasing the content about the art program and offering it through our web and social media.


– Museum admission: Tickets to the Museum purchased for the dates the Museum will be closed will be valid for a future date once the Museum opens to the public; alternatively, they can be refunded via the same way they were initially bought.

-Activities and programs: Tickets to activities and programs will be refunded automatically if bought online; if they were purchased at our Admissions desk, they will be refunded at the Museum.
