The Antikenmuseum Basel and Sammlung Ludwig exhibit 5000 years of Mediterranean culture. Our outstanding collection focuses on Egypt, the Middle East, Greece and Italy from 4000 BC to 400 AD.
We believe that the ancient world serves as both the foundation of and an inspiration for the present. These ancient cultures are brought to life through our special exhibitions and programmes. Through dialogue with our visitors, we are able to create connections that transcend eras and cultures. We look forward to sharing our collections and exhibitions with you or welcoming you to our bistro.
