About the institution

The Kunstmuseum Basel's main building will be closed until mid-April 2016 for renovations and the construction of an underground passage connecting it to the new building.

The Bistro is open.

The bookshop in the main building is closed. A satellite branch offering a small selection of literature has been set up in the library, which remains open.

The shop at the Museum für Gegenwartskunst is open and offers an enlarged selection.

The Kunstmuseum Basel is about to undergo a major transformation. Across Dufourstrasse an exhibition building is rising that will satisfy the highest contemporary standards for the presentation of art. With these changes, the museum lays the foundation for a future worthy of its tradition as a leading international art institution. It looks forward to welcoming future generations of art and architecture fans to the Kunstmuseum Basel, home to the city's famous-and the world's oldest-public collection of art.
