Visit the museum to see nearly 40 percent of Klee's pieces--almost 900 different works. The museum opened in 2005 in an architecturally significant building consisting of three waves on a green lawn.

  • First — easy to get to by bus from the train station — line 12 as others noted. The building is amazing - growing out of the landscape and housing an wonderful collection. The current exhibition of Kl...  more »
  • It doesn't happen often: a Museum for the artist Paul Klee, monothematic, built just for this museum. It will cost a lot, but it's admirable courage (and having enough money)

  • A beautiful building seamlessly merging into its context. What I appreciated most is the attention and dedication for kids activities and involving them into the world of Paul Klee.
  • Great exhibition in 10 American painters, especially G. Dawis and M. Rothko impressed me.
  • Stunning architecture and vast exhibition rooms. Simply beautiful to visit.
  • Excellent layout and exceptional description of the life and techniques used by the artist. A truly fine venue to showcase such an artist.
  • It has a beautiful building and an extensive collection of Klee. They only display a small portion of the collection at one time. They do not have an exhibit of his best works. Although Klee is not my favorite artist, I've like quite a few of his works. Right now they have an exhibition that didn't have a single work that I liked in the least. Other than the Wi-Fi and bathrooms, it was a waste of $40.
