Safely visiting, even in these challenging times
With your safety in mind, we have developed a COVID-19 protection concept.

Creating a wonderful art experience, one that is safe for visitors and staff, even in these challenging times, is a priority.  To ensure everyone’s protection at Kunsthalle Basel, the institution has developed a protection concept that implements the Covid-19 measures of the federal and cantonal government. In addition to the basic rules regarding hygiene and social distancing, the following measures are in place:
– mask-wearing is mandatory in all publicly accessible rooms
– hand disinfectant is available in the foyer for visitors and staff
– visitors are asked to touch only the publications they wish to buy or borrow
– card payment at the cash desk is preferred
– the reading room of the library remains closed
– access to specific exhibition rooms can be temporarily restricted if there are too many people in them
– guided tours are without reservation but limited to 15 visitors (first come, first served)
