Our large bookstore is not only a treasure trove for art lovers, but also an insider’s tip for everyone looking for individual gifts. It offers a comprehensive selection of catalogues documenting the Kunstmuseum Basel’s collections and special exhibitions, books on art and architecture, children’s books, DVDs, artists’ editions, limited-edition art prints, postcards, posters, notebooks, toys, and much more, as well as additional items associated with temporary exhibitions currently on view at the museum.

The bookstore is located in the main building across from the stairs leading down to the passageway to the new building. Branch bookshops may be found in the foyer of the new building’s foyer and across from the entrance to the Kunstmuseum Basel | Gegenwart. The bookstore and shops are open during museum hours; no ticket required.

Stop by, give us a call, or send us an email with your request or order—our team will assist you promptly.
