Basel is no strangers to museums! Home of the oldest museum of Switzerland, the Kunstmuseum’s exhibits are divided into two time frames- the 1400-1600 and 1800 to the present. A not-so-consolidated time capsule, everything you need to know about art through the ages can be found within these walls. The Kunstmuseum boasts of the finest collection in all of Europe- the Upper Rhine Valley collections, sculptures of Rodin and Calder to name a few and of course the old masters are just some of the visual treats in store for you!

Kunst Museum Reviews & Ratings

  • 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!

  • What a great experience. Very nice with a lot of art. A must see if you are in Basel!

  • 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.

  • I got discount from municipality. Which is nice! The map/schema a bit cryptic, but after you realise rooms layout you will understand it. I met old and new names - great experience! Cafe was nice but expensive, but it is Switzerland. You can also use lockers for your things and coats. I put mine just on hanger and it was fine. Definitely recommend!

  • One of the best collections of modern art: not too big, not too small, quite comprehensive with all the big names you want to see.
