Dear museum visitors,


We are delighted that you have chosen to visit us! Please note:

  • For the health of all our visitors it is compulsory to wear a mask in the exhibition rooms and at our events
  • At the reception, visitors shall disinfect their hands. In the toilets on the 1st floor, visitors have the opportunity to wash their hands with soap
  • Due to limited space at the entrance and in the exhibition rooms, it may sometimes be necessary to wait briefly
  • At events (all events, guided tours and workshops), visitors register for a list and wear masks
  • For admission and for purchases in the shop, we prefer payment by card

We have set up Cartoonmuseum Basel in accordance with the latest recommendations from the Swiss Museums Association. You will find the list of measures here. Thank you very much for adhering to our measures and rules. In doing so, you are helping to protect yourself and those around you.


Kindly find the latest press release here.


We also offer you a comprehensive online programme with guided tours, workshops and events. In addition, it is now possible to hold workshops and guided tours for groups with children and young people up to the age of 20.


We hope you find your visit to Cartoonmuseum Basel inspiring!
