The Best Museum Shop in Town

In our museum shop you are sure to find the right and suitable gift, not least thanks to its exclusive museum collection of scarves, bags and fans. The museum shop is open to all, not only to museum visitors.

Are you looking for a special gift or small present? Or, how about a nice keepsake in memory of your visit to the museum? Our museum shop holds a fantastic selection of top-quality items for adults and children. It has repeatedly been called the best museum shop in Basel.

Very much in demand are the museum's own products for which we draw inspiration from a wide range of objects, textiles, and patterns featured in our collections. In collaboration with select producers, they are then turned into exclusive scarves, bags, and fans, etc. In addition, we recycle advertising materials and use them to make delightful gift wrappings, among other things.

We adapt our assortment to the changing exhibitions and seasons. It includes clothes, jewellery, and home accessories as well toys and stationery items from across the world. In-house publications and other books complement our wide range of offers.

Fair trade
Support of local arts and crafts is an important criterion when choosing our products. We place great value on fair trade and socially responsible production conditions.

So, just pop in and have a look around. The shop is in the entrance area and is freely accessible.

As a special service we will wrap the presents you’ve selected in an original manner. Our staff are versed in the Japanese folding technique of origami and are happy to make out of the wrapping an eye-catching present in itself.
