  • The Renzo Piano building is wonderful and the collection of Klee works imparts a new appreciation for this artist. Good cafe and easy to reach by tram

  • First, I think it is very dishonest of the museum staff that they do not tell you that the museum is free with the Swiss pass. We pointed out that we had the Bern pass from our hotel and they said...

  • Modern museum with a unique arquitecture. Inside the public spaces and the exhibition halls are beautiful and amazingly designed. The exhibition itself was nothing extraordinary just great...👍🏻Paul Klee deserved to be named after...yeah 😎
  • Very nice architectural structure, friendly and helpful check-in at the ticket purchase counter, we were a little disappointed but the exhibition area, but simply because we were expecting a larger area with more historical and important works from Klee. Overall though it was a very good experience!
  • The architecture is stunning and therefore totally worth the visit. The café inside is nice too, restaurant nearby great and lots of land to walk around. Exhibitions: Paul Klee has a fascinating story, the exhibition I saw (not sure if permanent or changing) wasn't as fascinating as the story...the changing exhibition of art brut artist was somewhat interesting and the tour we took helped a lot (great tour guide) still, at 20CHF per entrance (plus 5chf for tour) it is overpriced- 10-12CHF should be sufficient
  • Beautiful museum. Lovely paintings and storied behind it. But it gets boring after some time with young kids. The area for kids to draw or arts and craft has specific timings. So better to search that and plan before your visit. Lovely cafe and selection of food. Free use of lockers.
  • Great experience, magnificient architecture, interesting exibitions, remarkable memory of Paul Klee. Interesting for school children at some point as well.
