Fondation Beyeler

Basel, Switzerland has a number of good museums, including this small private one - Fondation Beyeler. It is in the Basel suburb of Riehen, located on the Villa Berower estate, about a 15 minute tram ride from downtown Basel. The building and grounds are beautiful. The museum is small but has some really great art from Picasso, Monet, Ernst, Cezanne, Miro, Pollock, Rauschenberg, etc. The art is from the collection of art dealer Ernst Beyeler. They currently have a nice Klimt exhibit  - one of my favorite artists.
