Visit to the Fondation Beyeler

Important information

We look forward to welcoming you back to the museum. The exhibitions “Edward Hopper” and “Silent Vision – Images of Calm and Quiet” have been extended until September 20 respectively the end of November. In order to make your visit to the museum as pleasant as possible, we have adjusted our ticketing to the purchase of time tickets until further in additions to introducing various measures on site.

Please note that the number of tickets available per day and time slot for the current exhibitions is limited. This way we can ensure a balanced flow of visitors. Please book an online time ticket only if you are sure that you can keep the appointment. Only very limited number of tickets are available at the museum box office. Due to the popularity of the current exhibition, there may be long waiting times for those arriving without an online timed ticket. Please note that booked online tickets are not refundable.

The Fondation Beyeler bases its calculation of maximum visitor capacity on the directives issued by the Swiss Confederation and the Canton of Basel-Stadt, in accordance with which a minimum surface area of 4m2 must be provided per visitor. As the current Hopper exhibition is very popular and well attended, the museum is likely to be operating at full capacity at all times.

The tram stop is very close to the museum. Guests coming from within Switzerland can benefit from the SBB RailAway special offer.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Now as ever, the safety of our visitors and employees remains our first priority. The Fondation Beyeler has therefore drawn up a comprehensive safety plan that takes into account the Swiss Federal Council’s Covid-19 Ordinances. In order to make your visit to the museum as enjoyable as possible in these challenging times, we have introduced several measures to optimise visitor flow.

Beginning Thursday, 7 May, admission tickets are available again online with a choice of time slots. Online timed tickets are valid for a specific date and time, chosen freely by visitors according to availabilities. Only a limited number of tickets is available at the museum desks. Please be punctual: arriving more than 30 minutes late may mean you have to wait.

TICKETS

You have already purchased an online ticket, you have received a voucher or you hold a membership that would normally allow you to access the museum freely?

Before visiting, you must also book a timed ticket online by purchasing a «0 CHF ticket». The «0 CHF ticket» is valid only in conjunction with your other documentary proof of free access; both must be presented at the museum entrance.  

You hold a membership or other that grants you reduced-rate admission?

Please also purchase a «0 CHF ticket» and then buy your reduced-rate ticket on site at the museum admission desk.

We ask that you bring along a printout of your ticket when you visit.

Entry coupons are always valid with the exception of exhibitions with a higher admission fee.

The parking lot "Zentrum" is located next to the Fondation Beyeler and is open 24 hours a day. Handicapped parking is available immediately by the entrance. Along the side of the museum on Baselstrasse there are an additional three parking spots for coaches. If these are occupied, guests can be dropped off in front of the museum before the coach is parked on "Schiessplatz" in Riehen.
