  • There is much to see. Each floor has completely different topics. In my opinion worth a visit, even if it is not the classic art. I find the House structurally very successful. It's also great to look out the Windows and see the roofs of the old town.

  • The main attraction is the collection of older and current Web work. He also collects the Museum of Arts and crafts of the peoples and illuminated the today's waste of resources.

  • I love this Museum and visits it every time when I'm in Basel. Strange familiar, marveling at the art of other Nations (it was called Museum of Ethnology sooner!) and the wonderful old venerable House - visit!

  • Fascinating and engaging (interactive!) exhibits. Currently (Jan 2016) hosting exhibits from an art museum which is closed for renovation. Wish I could have stayed longer.
  • Very nice museum by Herzog & DeMeuron, inside an old house. The entry is a bit expensive for the expositions it holds, although seeing just the building sometmes is worth it.
  • Schönes museum
  • Outside is nice, there are clearly big ways but it is... empty. And boring. Very fine pieces but without any effort to tell a story, very empty and only contemplative, you learn almost nothing. Everything is in German, even if there are small booklets paper read (not practical) and an audio guide (- 5), but for a single exhibition. 16. - for this, do not go less than enjoy a guided visit, very few impressive parts if not connoisseurs.

  • Wanted to make a friend from Japan a pleasure and got him invited to the Museum of cultures. Unfortunately, that was fully in the pants. I thought already before a year that only tinker at work, but unfortunately are these lay still muddle through in this museum. You bring nothing to the series.
