Guggenheim Museum Bilbao: annual number of visitors 2010-2019

Along with the old town, pintxos on narrow streets and Europe’s largest indoor market “La Ribera”, the museum Guggenheim is one of Bilbao’s main landmarks. The museum, housed in a building designed by the renowned architect Frank Gehry, was visited by over 1.17 million guests in 2019, showing an uptrend over the period under consideration.

Spain: an indisputable travel destination

Spaniards are fond of museums. The latest surveys denote that 47 percent of the people that visited museums in Spain in 2015 preferred museums specialized in art, rather than archaeology or natural science museums. The most visited museum was the Madrid-based Museo Reina Sofía, with nearly four million visitors in 2018, followed by Museo del Prado, also in Madrid, with nearly 3 million visits. Culture expenditure has been on the rise over the last years, with over 75 percent of museum and monument professionals reporting an improvement in both net income and sales and e-commerce culture revenues experiencing an uptrend.

Tourism constitutes an essential industry for the Spanish economic system

Travel and tourism have become one of the Spanish economy's leading growth engines, featuring a steady increase in GDP contribution over the past few years and projected to reach around € 178 billion in 2018. The sector plays a main role in boosting the Spanish labor market, which has experienced important improvement since the financial crisis of 2007 that has put many jobs in jeopardy across the nation.
