Antikenmuseum Basel und Sammlung Ludwig

The Antikenmuseum (Basel Museum of Ancient Art and Ludwig Collection) is the only Swiss Museum, devoted exclusively to the art and culture of the Mediterranean area. As one of the five large public museums of the canton Basel-Stadt it was placed in buildings of historical importance in the center of town (in front of the Kunstmuseum). The permanent collections date mainly from the Egyptian, Greek, Italic, Etruscan and Roman cultures, thus covering a period of time from the 4th millennium B.C. to the 6th century A.D.
