(3.8/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)

  • We particularly enjoyed a wonderful concert with cellist Nicolas Altstaedt and pianist Faisal Say. Good acoustics in the concert hall.  more »
  • a Rico and interesting Museum. Informational support about the artist is, however, little consistent for people seeking to know better the work.

  • The sinuous structure of Renzo Piano welcomes this museum dedicated to Paul Klee's artistic production: when I went I found two exhibitions, "Paul Klee and surrealists" and "Paul Klee the poet and thinker", in my opinion very well done (and with several works by other artists in addition to those by Klee), although a little short. The full price is CHF 20, there are discounts for students; Italian audio guides are available.

  • Fascinating architecture and impressive paintings! There are many average but interesting paintings too, but a number of truly great masterworks.
  • This museum was pretty far out of the way and a bit underwhelming given its size. We didn't know who Paul Klee was going in and expected more exhibits. Staff were very nice though.
  • cé T tro biun jé adorrré lol xd
  • Nice place for every weather. Books and albums on Art when it is too windy to make a tour around the construction
  • For Paul Klee lovers this wonderful museum is well worth a visit. I don't know much about this artist, though the exhibition has good volumes of information in english to learn about him. Good facilities and easy to get to by public transport. Bus to the door and tram a short walk away. Food is average and the usual expensive museum fare. Architecturally the building is fascinating.
