Kunstmuseum Basel | Neubau

The new extension located opposite the main building and joined to it by an underground walkway is a top-quality exhibition venue for contemporary art presentation and a further architectural highlight in the City of Basel.

360° Panorama

From the outside, the building – by Basel architects Christ & Gantenbein – is imposing with its grey brick façade, its small number of large windows and its integrated LED lighting. Inside, it provides the artworks with an understated setting with its rectangular exhibition rooms and oak floors. The 2,740 m² of space will be primarily used for large special exhibitions.
