  • A must-see when you are in Basel. I've been to the museum many times and keep coming back. It's a fun museum that makes the art on display very accessible. They have a nice bistro with tasty cake and good coffee too.
  • his museum as always been a great entertainment for me when I was a kid. Twenty years later it's even more fun to get back there again and again. We had a great time with my family, for a whole afternoon.
