The Media of the Permanent Exhibition


The permanent exhibition "Understanding the World" at the Historical Museum Basel opened on 13 November 2011 and covers an area of 1200 square meters in the basement of the Barfüsserkirche.

Divided in the areas "Art Chamber", "Medieval Tapestries", "Archaeology in Basel" and "Coin Cabinet", the exhibition provides a profound insight into various facets of Basel's history. It features approximately 2000 objects from Roman times to the Baroque, as well as their stories, which are communicated via media installations, audio recordings, and at interactive stations. iart was – in cooperation with Atelier Gillman – responsible for the concept and planning of the exhibition media.
