You will be amazed by the number of world-famous artists and masterpieces in one place. Definitely the top of the list if you visit Basel.

Check to see what special exhibits are being shown as Basel draws excellent shows. This is a well designed space and very diverse depending on which sections of the museum you visit. Sometimes it is free, so see if you'll be there during a free day. Lots of diverse art, something for everyone. (and, I'm not a big art museum fan...)

There is a wide range of paintings in this gallery. The museum is free to visit on the first Sunday of every month (make sure to get a ticket from the office before entering even although it is free). There is a locker room in which to place your bags (no coins required) - this is very useful.
And the building itself is stunning.

I was on a business trip to Basel and had a very tight schedule, however, Kunstmuseum was a walking distance from the hotel . It consists of exhibitions in 3 buildings which became a bit tedious after some time.
