A well-organised beautiful building (inside and out); each floor has a different theme which shows exhibits from all over the world. Fantastic displays which are well thought through. You can easily focus on the artefacts that attracts you most. I adored the unique Kingfisher feather jewellery, the arty painted eggs and the up-cycling objects. There is such a large variety... 更多
This museum is in the corner just of Munsterplatz, and has a great mixture of displays from masks to modern bottle walls inside a fabulous building, the outside of the building is worth the visit alone
Some interesting artefacts in this museum, but too many of the same thing in some instances. Information sheets on each floor which are very useful, if a little wordy.
This is one of these museums with very diverse expositions: cultural objects from various peoples, modern and antique, common and strange looking. There is for example a huge Native American wigwam which can be observed from different floors. The place is a bit weird and I'm not sure if I liked it or not. I found the Carnival of Basel... 更多
Nice way to pass an hour. The staff were very nice & helpful on each floor - the gentlemen had a lot of knowledge. The English translation books were a brilliant accompaniment. They do enforce that you leave your handbag in the locker though.
Was expecting a lot more, in this museum town. Some interesting exhibits but overall mediocre. Clean, clear, clutter free arrangements. They had an exhibition on 'recycling', but no recycling facilities at the venue; a bit ironic isn't it. If you are in a rush, I would sure give this a miss. Free entry though with Swiss travel pass.
I regularly visit this museum. Amazing objects from different cultures of the world are presented in a most interesting way in the beautiful rooms. There are various exhibitions on different levels at the same time. The museum has a very quiet yard and a nice museum shop.
I wanted to go to the Kunstmuseum but it was shut until April but has lent several paintings to 2 Museums, the more Modern stuff was at the Artmuseum in St. Alban which I went to see first. We then walked up to this one as it was showing some old Masters which is what I enjoy. And it was... 更多
Set back on the munsterplatz this is a big museum with 3 floors of exhibits. 1st floor has the collection of trips to Sri lanka and pacific islands and cameroon with 3 different explorers - tribal exhibits etc , really good explanations in english . Second floor has more exhibits from asian culture , a section on recycling in third... 更多
I loved the focused exhibits at the Museum of Culture (one on the History of Opium and on Neapolitan street vendors when I was there). But I dislike the contemporary vogue for throwing a lot of disparate items together which have often but a tenuous connection to the exhibit's theme, and expecting the visitor to conjure an experience from this.... 更多
