  • The Museum is housed in a former Church in the city centre. There is a tram stop right outside the entrance. Inside were collected thousands of exhibits dealing with the history of the city of Basel, divided on the entrance level, crypt and an upper floor accessible by wooden stairs awkward, impossible to climb for people with mobility problems. Captions are all the German language, as well as audio explanations disponibilisu several artifacts. At the entrance they provided us with a small tablet in English where I could just type the number of the find in order to read the explanations quite exhaustive. Is a museum that needs a long time to look carefully, I after a while I struggled to find my way in the wide range of observable objects.

  • Fun and free in the late afternoon. On a delightful plaza, close to the tram stop and next to Motel One. In walking distance to many fine stores and restaurants. The Christmas Market held directly in front.
  • There's a rich content of art crafts, which is great indeed. But I do recommend to make the chronological order more clear. I am little confused with which route I should take.
  • Very nice historical museum in an old monastery church. The museum has recently been re-furbished and features now a very atmospheric exhibition in the lower floor. The exhibitions also features a number of interactive stations, well suitable to visit with kids. There are changing special exhibition with a lot of context to the present.
  • Good museum, but you have to read a lot at a pecial exhibition.
  • Shockingly unfriendly and extremely unhelpful woman at the entrance desk this afternoon. No wonder this museum is in such a scandalous financial situation!
