The Kunstmuseum Basel, or Basel Art Museum, is one of Switzerland’s most prestigious art institutions and a major cultural attraction in the city of Basel. Established in 1661, it is one of the oldest public art museums in the world and houses an impressive collection of artwork spanning from the 15th century to contemporary art.

The museum’s vast collection includes works by renowned artists such as Hans Holbein the Younger, Rembrandt, Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, and Andy Warhol.
