Museumsnacht Basel 2023 (Basel Museums Night)
After two years of cancellations and postponements, Museums Night will be held once again in January! For eight straight hours, you can go on a nocturnal expedition and discover 37 museums and other cultural institutions during the Basel Museums Night. The participating institutions have planned around 200 thrilling events for young and old, including numerous events especially for families. You can enjoy exciting discoveries, delectable moments, and interesting and unusual encounters around the various exhibits and collections. For English-speaking guests, the program includes special tours in English at various institutions. Many other events also don’t require knowledge of the German language (eg, concerts). The full program, which will be published by January, will be available on their website. Activities for children and families, as well as foreign-language and language-independent events, will be marked with special icons.
Your Museums Night ticket entitles you to free travel by bus, tram, and train in the TriRegio network from 17:00 until late at night. There will also be several dedicated shuttle bus lines all starting at Münsterplatz that connect different museums and run from 18:00-02:00. For more information, check their website.
For people with special needs, three vehicles with wheelchair access are available at Münsterplatz from 18:00–01:30 for transport between the museums (sorry, no home transport service). To book a ride during Museums Night, call +41-(0)79-424-3077.
