Guided tours

Public guided tours start at 11:00 am on Sundays. They explore current exhibitions in detail and throw light on their exhibits from many angles. Some tours revolve around topics that are common to all our exhibitions; others are more focused on the Museum der Kulturen Basel MKB as such.

Discover the history of the Museum and the objects in its collections. Make connections between the past and the present and, indeed, yourself while also gaining insight into the specialist views of anthropologists.

Public guided tours are in German. Signed tours for hearing-impaired visitors are available on particular Sundays. During carnival time, tours of the exhibition “Basel Carnival” are given additionally in English and French.

Sunday tours are included in the admission fee. Private tours may be booked separately during or outside the usual opening hours.
