Happy 19th anniversary to @MuseoGuggenheim! Designed by architect #FrankGehry, the museum opened to the public in 1997 by the banks of Bilbao’s Nervión river. Today, the museum is surrounded by avenues and plazas, and the main entrance lies in a direct line with Calle Iparragirre—one of the main streets running diagonally through Bilbao—extending the city center up to the museum’s door. Gehry’s design creates a spectacular sculpture-like structure, perfectly integrated within Bilbao’s urban pattern and its surrounding area.
