Booking the Museum

The Antikenmuseum Basel offers a variety of venues which can be booked for private functions. Why not hold your concert, lecture or company event in an atmospheric setting, surrounded by unique cultural treasures? In our Egyptian or Sculpture Gallery, for example? If you wish, our Bistro will be happy to provide catering. The conference room is available for meetings, while the seminar room is particularly suited to school classes, workshops or membership meetings. Invite your guests to the Bistro for a private culinary experience, enjoy drinks in the Bistro Foyer, or relax in our secluded courtyard. Last but not least, the Skulpturhalle offers spacious facilities for large-scale events.
