Historisches Museum Barfusser Platz Reviews & Ratings

  • Nice setting in Historic church, so many beautiful pieces to look at. Some have complained about there not being English translations on most of the plaques, that is true I did see some though. I used a google translator app and that did pretty well. The women at front desk was very nice and even saved me 50% off the the admission price. Much to see, still was under some construction at time I went.

  • Beautiful museum that makes good use of its location in an old church. Limited English translations available, which made it difficult to understand some sections. Plenty of visual interest made it with while though, particularly in the lower level.

  • great museum one of the less expensive places in Switzerland and no cheese! lots of floors of historical stuff and artifacts with much centered around the city of Basel itself and religious icons and artifacts, colourful place surprisingly enjoyed it more than i expected recommended

  • Very nice. Wish the audio guide was easier to use rather than having to type in the numbers of each exhibit. Also wish there were English translations on the plaques

  • A great place to get goosebumps.
