Fondation Beyeler operates the museum that owns and exhibits the art collection of the late Ernst and Hildy Beyler. The husband-and-wife couple amassed a large collection of modern classics during their lifetimes. A highlight of the museum is the collection of 23 pieces by Pablo Picasso; the museum also features works by Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, and Andy Warhol. The Beyelers created the foundation and museum to house their substantial art collection and provide public access to the pieces. The museum's glazed building sits nestled in Berowerpark, where special exhibits periodically take place.

  • World-class exhibits in a picturesque location. We came to see the Mondrian exhibit which was curated very well. Probably one of my favorite exhibits at the Foundation so far. The juxtapositions of the different paintings highlighted his evolution.
  • Beautiful museum. The Fondation Beyeler owns a magnificent art collection which they tastefully expose alongside other masterpieces, in both artist retrospectives and more "thematic" exhibitions. It has become a regular trip for me to Basel every time a new exposition occurs. Highly recommended.
