  • This museum can be for everyone. The main house is like a glorified IKEA, yes. Take that for what it is. But for more design & architecture enthusiasts, the other houses are the draw. The SANAA wareho...  more »

  • This is quite a unique place. I am not a fan of contemporary design but this museum almost made me a convert. The arrangements were quite appealing and presented good ideas with respect to the use of space and the synergy of the pieces used. Some of the displays on the side of the building that faced the pastoral surroundings across the road were very relaxing in their presentations as the wall-length windows allowed one to look out over the bucolic environs. I could have sat all day staring out the window in those corners of the museum. The arrangement inspired by Alice in Wonderland was particularly memorable as far as the more peculiar designs were concerned. The verbiage providing historical perspectives relative to the evolution of design ideas was also of interest. If you are in the Basel area and have some time, this place is worth a visit, even if you're not particularly an interior design buff. It will only take 60 - 90 minutes to stroll through at a casual pace. There is also a nice café where you can get a coffee and sweet treat (or even lunch) to add to the enjoyment of your visit.
  • Just one of the best place of this area for discovery Art, furniture or just for take a Café Break. This place look nice and is free if you want just see the furniture, and know a little more of their history.
  • Great place to visit for architects and designers. Awesome place to see and understand why design is so important.
  • Heaven! Far away from the center but worth every minute and penny. Do not miss when you are in Basel.
  • Very interesting and well managed. Too much admitance ticket which is double than Uffizi
