Haus zum Kirschgarten

The Neoclassical house hosts a museum of domestic culture

Elisabethenstrasse 27, 4051, Basel, Switzerland

Part of the Basel Historical Museum, the Haus zum Kirschgarten hosts a museum of domestic culture since 1951. The house was built for the silk ribbon manufacturer and army colonel Johann Rudolf Burckhardt between 1775 and 1780, designed in early Neoclassical style, according to the taste of Basel’s influent bourgeoisie of the time. Nowadays, besides the 18th- and 19th-century original furniture, the building also hosts special collections and temporary mini-exhibitions.
