It is a very nice and beautiful museum. I like toy’s floor which have very good and ancient toys, especially bears. It has a floor for kids . You can give a discount with Basel card but gift shop is not cheap

A must visit place in Basel. Really interesting though bears and dolls might not really be your kind of interest. But just walking around this place can be fascinating already. You can spend hours there.
