Wasn't sure what to expect from this, but was delighted, especially by the "angle" paintings, loved other works too. Set in a parkland setting. Sculpture park nearby, don't miss it

I took the number 12 bus there, which was a nice ride, but the high price for the museum and the audioguide was not worth it. Unless you love Klee and want to see his grave, I would recommend you rather go to the Kunstmuseum, which has some nice Klees, and not take the time to go to this one.... More

I was really looking forward to visiting this art gallery. Having admired many of Paul Klee's artworks at other galleries, the prospect of one gallery dedicated to this surrealist artist was something to relish. The building itself is a piece of art in itself. There are three sections connected by a wave like roof that falls gently away into the... More

When I came to visit there was an exhibition that was centered around the theme of Trees. All the art on the upper level was by different artists and downstairs contained the art of Paul Klee. They also have a children's center where they do art activities with the kids. You can buy a listening program in German, French, Italian... More

If you are a surrealist fan this is a must. They have a very large number of paintings sketches and sculptures from this period, as well as informative film clips. Paul Klee is featured of course but there are many other famous artists Miro, Picasso etc. whose work is also hanging. the 3 interlocking buildings and the surrounding parkland is... More

Excellent place to spend a few hours, indoors and out (park with sculptures). Large museum shop, music concerts, paintings and the building itself make it worth a visit. Oh, and the restaurant serves great coffee and Kuchen! Easily accessible by bus.

We loved visiting the gallery! Beautiful modern building, easy to get to on the number 12 bus, it's the last stop on the route. Just the right amount of works on show so that you're not overwhelmed in racing round trying to see everything. A really thoughtful video about his life and works. Not such a good gift shop, with...

Go and visit even if you are not a Klee fan or don't want to pay entrance for the exhibition. The building itself and the park around it is worth a visit!

The architecture is already stunning with a wavy roofline echoing the hills and mountains around Bern. The collection of works traces the earliest to his final works and shows his experimentation with different media and techniques. As you see his works you also learn a great deal about the artist.
