How Did They Build That?: Guggenheim Museum


The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is much more than a place to house fine art and treasures. With its beautiful design of curving metal, sparkling glass, and soaring windows, the building itself is a treasure. Located on the banks of the Nervión River in Bilbao, Spain, the museum looks like a silver ship gliding on the water. Readers will learn how the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao was created, what materials were used, and how long it took to construct this masterpiece.
