  • Personally was more impressed with the old museum when it was still connected with the Natural History Museum. The new building and exhibitions are very interesting, but somehow certain parts feel a bit like an art museum.
  • Good quality exhibitions, and peaceful inside, in a very interesting building (an old one with new modern parts)
  • Unfortunately it was closed during my stay in Basel, I'm told by my local colleagues that is does worth the time.
  • Very different museum for different nations culture.
  • Amazing Ambient, great Shows
