  • Wonderful fossil collection - great for prehistory enthusiasts! Highlights included a soaring pterodactyl skeleton, dozens of ammonites, and a live leafcutter ant colony. Exhibit titles and accompanying text in German. Artful touches and authenticity give this small museum a captivating air.
  • You should provide training to your personal in order to have them treating tourists properly, specially the cashier lady. Their bad mood and impolite manner made me loose interest on the collections. There were quite a feel collections, but the descriptions were not even translated to the other three official languages or english.
  • Nice little museum. Had to pay extra to get into display of mummys on top and didn't bother but rest was reasonable value.
  • Nice nature museum for family members.
  • It's worth to visit in Basel . Wonderful exhibition of historic animals and their lives 👍👍👍

Where to stay in Basel

Business-oriented Basel offers an overwhelming amount of mid-range hotels catering to its business clientele. The city fills up during conferences and events, so be sure to plan accordingly. There are a number of guesthouses and bed and breakfasts too, but they tend to be pretty pricey. You'll find a handful of budget-friendly hostels just south of the city core. Keep in mind that as you move toward the outskirts of town for affordable accommodation, proximity to the train stations will be key. The good news is that a number of the hotels include public transport passes with the cost of a room.
