  • I thought that there were a lot of clay works on display, but it seemed that there was no permanent exhibition of clay only, and at times it was exhibited with other artists ' works. It was a bit disappointing because I wanted to see only a large amount of clay works. The building was modern and beautiful, and I could enjoy the view of Bern from the tram on my way.

  • Very modern museum. Really wonderful there a beautiful garden with works of art, all around the structure. Near there is a small cemetery with the tomb of Paul Klee. Easy to get to from the city centre the bus takes you right in front of the museum.

  • Really nice museum. Good collections and a fantastic building
  • Had a quick visit recently - the building itself is impressive enough and there is a lot to like in it. From the left side inside, you will find a caffee like restaurant which is a little bit expensive compared to most restaurants in Bern, but I guess that is expected from an attractive place. We also had a short 1 hour tour over a nicely built drawings musem that was having a lot of pictures and drawings from fancy and famous people like Picaso. Even though I am not the most attracted to those stuff kind of person, I had really enjoyed the tour, we also had an audio guide lady which in this whole hour she has been telling us everything about the drawings and their owners (in English) - Recommended, definitely.
