  • The setting of the modern part of the Museum alone is worth a visit. He puts the works very well in value.

  • The Cubism exhibition is great. It is a special exhibition with many renowned artists and especially many pictures of Pi-casso. We were there at 10am and it was relatively empty. Unfortunately, admission at 26 francs is a bit expensive

  • A very nice museum with a very extensive art selection. If you want to properly visit it, it will take you at least 2 hours. Also grateful that it was quiet at the time I visited, and not crowded. Many different artworks from Picasso to Kandinsky, as well as other less well-known artists from the Swiss region. An unforgettable time in a beautiful place!
  • Impressive! The old and new buildings are whatever you could have imagined of a museum and more. The fix expositions are interesting and there is always something new in there. If you come yo Basel is a must.
