Closure of the main building of the Kunstmuseum Basel

Beginning February 2015, the Kunstmuseum Basel will close its main building for renovation work and to connect to the extension building before re-opening in April 2016. On Saturday, January 31, and Sunday, February 1, 2015—the final two days before the main building closes for renovations—the building will be open until 8pm for a grand finissage. Admission is free. On Sunday, the Kunstmuseum fêtes its visitors with snacks and drinks and an alpenhorn serenade starting at 4pm.

elect masterpieces from the Kunstmuseum Basel will remain on view throughout the closure in both Basel and Madrid. The masterpieces of Modernity of the Kunstmuseum Basel will remain on view at the Museum für Gegenwartkunst in Basel, which will remain open throughout. The Museum der Kulturen Basel will host selected works of the Old Masters in the exhibition Holbein. Cranach. Grünewald. The Kunstmuseum Basel will be welcomed as guest for about ten months.

Core pieces of the Kunstmuseum Basel will also be displayed in Madrid at two of the most important Museums.
