Kunstmuseum and Museum für Gegenwartskunst

Just east of the Old Town, you’ll find Basel’s Kunstmuseum, which has a dazzling array of twentieth-century art, plus an outstanding medieval collection, including many works by the Holbein family. Tucked away by the river, the Museum für Gegenwartskunst contains installations by Frank Stella and Joseph Beuys.
