  • Good museum, but you have to read a lot at a pecial exhibition.
  • Very nice historical museum in an old monastery church. The museum has recently been re-furbished and features now a very atmospheric exhibition in the lower floor. The exhibitions also features a number of interactive stations, well suitable to visit with kids. There are changing special exhibition with a lot of context to the present.

  • Great place to spend a few hours learning about the history of Basel. Lookout for the dance of death area.
  • Nice place where you can find the full history of Basel
