Very informative. But poorly organized.

We learned a lot, but holy COW is the information poorly organized. Bad labeling on the exhibit areas; so hard to figure out where to go for the next audio program! Even the very... read more

Excellent place to spend a few hours, indoors and out (park with sculptures). Large museum shop, music concerts, paintings and the building itself make it worth a visit. Oh, and the restaurant serves great coffee and Kuchen! Easily accessible by bus.

We loved visiting the gallery! Beautiful modern building, easy to get to on the number 12 bus, it's the last stop on the route. Just the right amount of works on show so that you're not overwhelmed in racing round trying to see everything. A really thoughtful video about his life and works. Not such a good gift shop, with...

Go and visit even if you are not a Klee fan or don't want to pay entrance for the exhibition. The building itself and the park around it is worth a visit!

The architecture is already stunning with a wavy roofline echoing the hills and mountains around Bern. The collection of works traces the earliest to his final works and shows his experimentation with different media and techniques. As you see his works you also learn a great deal about the artist.

Interesting architecture by Piano. Regardless of what locals say, you CAN walk there easily....actually a nice walk from town, through rose garden to Zentrum. Mostly uphill, but easy. Great museum with lots of Klee history.

The Paul Klee Museum has an incredible architecture, architect Renzo Piano's work. Besides the interesting collection, there is a children inside the museum. The museum shop is an attraction in itself.

A visit is worth even just for the building and the environment, the construction is a master piece of modern architecture. Furthermore the Paul Klee collection is rich and amazing. Overall is a must see museum.

This is a popular museum dedicated to Paul Klee not far from the City center. The exhibits are very well designed for Paul Klee devotees. Not a bad day trip if you have the time. The restaurant is nice and they have a good assortment.

I'll preface this by saying I'm not usually a big art fan, and I had never heard of Paul Klee. I came here because a museum I had planned to visit was unexpectedly closed, and I have the Swiss museum pass, so why not? Usually when I visit an art museum or gallery there are a few pieces that I... More
