On a sunny Sunday morning I went to visit the museum and the Ludwig Kirchner exhibition. It's so easy to get there (3 stop from the main train station with tram number 3) and the place is extremely well organised. Lockers for free, cafeteria with ample seating available indoors and outside. Museum shop a tiny bit expensive. The rooms are... More

This is relatively large art museum exhibitions showing paintings by very many artists. There are lots of works by famous artists but frankly speaking most of the paintings are maybe not among their master works.

My wife and I were thrilled to see the excellent art exhibition "Ernst Ludwig Kirchner - The Berlin years" which will be around until May 7th 2017. The admission fee is pretty high (CHF 23) but you will enjoy the many lovely art works by this amazing artist. We also bought the very good catalogue of the exhibition as well... More

It's not a big museum, so I was surprised to see so many great paintings. I liked the impressionist exhibition the most.

A wide collection of artists: Chagall, Picasso, Van Gogh, Andy Wharrol... All the art you can ask for, it's here! Room by room, you go through the history of Art, and the price was quite fair. I've found a little bit evasive, that the artists' works were not together, you could find a work of Chagall in a room and... More

Wide ranging collection from Medieval to Contemporary art: mostly paintings with a bit of sculpture. The collection isn't particularly deep in any one era, but the small size lets the visitor range pleasurably through the centuries. There are some very nice late 19th -early 20th Academy style paintings. Well worth a visit.

It was a walk with a friend from Portugal from Elisabethenkirche to Kunstmuseum . This walk is definitely something that all visitors of Basel should do. And in the museum you get to see all the big artists. Picasso, chagal, Rembrandt, Monet, van Gogh....you name it.
