Fondation Beyeler, Riehen

#2 of 28 in Museums in Canton of Basel
Art Museum Museum
Fondation Beyeler operates the museum that owns and exhibits the art collection of the late Ernst and Hildy Beyler. The husband-and-wife couple amassed a large collection of modern classics during their lifetimes. A highlight of the museum is the collection of 23 pieces by Pablo Picasso; the museum also features works by Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, and Andy Warhol. The Beyelers created the foundation and museum to house their substantial art collection and provide public access to the pieces. The museum's glazed building sits nestled in Berowerpark, where special exhibits periodically take place. Fondation Beyeler is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Riehen Edition.

  • Was here during art Basel and the museum itself with its architecture and the landscape is great as well as the exhibition, so it's a must, and have a coffee or lunch in the restaurant  more »
  • I was in town for business and luckily the Monet exhibition was there. It is a beautiful building and the surrounding was also nice. They were open till 8 pm on Wednesdays so we used the opportunity.  more »
  • Went to see an amazing Monet exhibit, but was surprised by the quality of 19th and 20th artists. The grounds were beautiful and there is a great cafe in grounds. Tram 6 is an easy transportation. Wish...  more »

  • Beautiful place with amazing charming garden . Monet exhibition should see everyone! Big rooms with great light. I recommend that gallery to art lovers
  • Excellent Museum! Do visit here when you stay in Basel for more than one day! The Monet exhibition (currently only until the end of May 2017) is the best I have seen in Europe: the museum gathered a bunch of master pieces of Monet from different museums all over the world, which cover nearly the life span of Monet. Besides, if you do not have a Museum Pass, consider some waiting time if you come and visit after 12:00, especially on Sundays. Last but not least, the building itself is also worth visiting. Oh yes, do not forget check out the garden and have a relaxed walk outside!
  • This is the least child-friendly museum I have ever visited. There is a range of random rules depending of where you are in the exhibition - children were forbidden to walk "next to walls" in some rooms, needed to be carried (but not on the shoulders because "you never know") in others. Rules were implemented by a glum staff that conveyed the all the happiness you'd expect in the waiting room of a dentist. The place has excellent light and would really benefit from reviewing its attitude toward young visitors.
  • A beautiful cultural hub that encompass all of the arts. Hosting music, design, painting, sculpture all in the surrounding gardens.
  • Visited the Monet exhibition. Was nice. Very expensive though (28€ pp).
