Antikenmuseum Basel
History and tradition
Basel
Switzerland
The Antikenmuseum Basel houses an outstanding collection of Egyptian, Greek, Italic, Etruscan and Roman works of art. It is the only museum in Switzerland exclusively devoted to ancient art and the cultures of the Mediterranean region. The museum introduces its visitors to epochs of cultural history that still have an impact on present-day society – the ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman eras in particular. Based on a range of first-class objects we outline the history, religion, philosophy, art, literature and everyday life of these cultures, which had a crucial impact on the course of world history and on the development of the western world.
