About The Paul Klee Collection, Bern
Paul Klee, one of the best artists Switzerland proudly calls its own, has a museum set up in his honour. One of the best museums you’ll come across in Switzerland, some 4000 works of the artist are up for public display. Housed in a building that looks like a hill, the museum is divided into said hills.
The middle hill is where Klee’s main works of art are; they keep rotating every year and at any given point there are at least 4000 paintings to feast your eyes on. You could also learn the break-down of some of Klee’s famous works via the computer displays in the interactive area. Embark on a tour with the help of an audio guide of his work.

Excellent layout and exceptional description of the life and techniques used by the artist. A truly fine venue to showcase such an artist.
Perfect for knowing Klee artículo anda thoughts. Not only the exhibición but also the surroundings helps you get coser to Klee's way of understanding the world. There is also a space for kinder.
It has a beautiful building and an extensive collection of Klee. They only display a small portion of the collection at one time. They do not have an exhibit of his best works. Although Klee is not my favorite artist, I've like quite a few of his works. Right now they have an exhibition that didn't have a single work that I liked in the least. Other than the Wi-Fi and bathrooms, it was a waste of $40.
It is with a heavy heart that I write this review. I am myself an artist and a major Paul Klee appreciator/aficionado. Thus, with a certain expectation of seeing some exceptional works, I dragged several non-artist friends with me to the museum. The architecture is interesting- no doubt about that. The museum proudly boasts 4,000 works. However, nearly all of them apparently remain in storage while a minimal number are periodically trotted out for changing mini-exhibitions, presumably in order to keep local visitors returning. Being very familiar with Klee's work as well as being able to discern quality based upon recognizable skill and mastery, the exhibit we paid to see was not only terribly small but rather poorly curated- with a title that possessed no particular context to the paintings on exhibit. The unfortunately chosen piece of artwork used on the exhibition poster should have been a dead giveaway. Perhaps ½ dozen (certainly under 10) pieces shown in the Klee exhibit we saw were of any genuine quality. No major pieces were on hand and only one piece was actually recognizable as one of his known works. Every artist- no matter how great- has good days and bad ones. One had the feeling that a number of the works on view were those from portfolios Klee himself never intended anyone to see. A German speaking video playing in the back (with a paltry few low volume English earphones available) was well made and informative. There, one could finally get a sense of what Klee was so undeniably capable of. The exhibition video should never be the highlight of the visitor's experience but unfortunately- in this case- it was. A more-than-triple-the-space area was reserved for an exhibition of Supremist (and like minded) paintings in an adjoining room. That I am not personally enamoured of these particular works is irrelevant to the fact that such a decisively larger space really ought to have been reserved for the artist the museum is named after. Arguably some of the most interesting items on view are a tiny glass walled bee hive in a hallway and (rather bizarrely) a row of corn cobs on exhibit that- as incongrous to an art museum that these artifacts may be- Klee himself might have been able to find inspiration in. The dubious "pleasure and fullfillment" provided by this museum visit comes at a fairly steep price- Louvre, Met and MOMA territory yet the exhibition(s) on view are but the faintest of shadows in juxtaposition, size and quality-wise. Your future visit MAY be more fortunate than ours but I suspect that the general approach I have named is how this museum rolls. To be forewarned is to be forearmed.
Interesting exhibitions. Great architecture. Nice service.
