Kunstmuseum Basel is one of the best-known galleries of its type in the world. Its world-famous public art collection currently consists of around 4,000 paintings, sculptures, installations and videos, plus 300,000 drawings and prints spanning seven centuries. The impressive new annex designed by renowned Basel architects Christ & Gantenbein, adjacent to the main building, is one of Basel’s many architectural highlights. The new annex – linked via an underground passageway to the main building – mainly houses first-class special exhibitions and presentations of individual collections. Together with the Museum für Gegenwartskunst (Museum for Contemporary Art), now named “Kunstmuseum Basel | Gegenwart”, Kunstmuseum Basel features three outstanding buildings. Each has its own history, specific character and purpose.
