International Museum’s Day
The International Museum’s Day is a great opportunity to discover this country’s diverse and rich museum landscape. Switzerland has more than 1,000 extremely diverse museums. Even if you only discover a few, you will have many opportunities to plunge into a museum adventure—to enjoy and/or understand art, experience tradition, appreciate natural phenomena, or revive history.
On International Museum’s Day, which is sponsored by the International Council of Museums, institutions around the world are inviting the public to visit their collections. The theme of this year’s event is “Happy Museums: Sustainability and Well-Being.” More than 100 museums in Switzerland participate in the International Museum’s Day, including several in Basel-Stadt and Baselland. Go to the website to get a complete list of the participating museums and the special exhibitions, tours, and other activities they are planning for this day.
