I didn't enjoy it. It actually hurt that I paid to see it. I've liked some museums and exhibits I've been to, this one wasn't worth it.

Several very good temporary exhibits: I saw the Gold exhibit and the Peter Marino. Both were very impressive and informative. The setting is very attractive and the outdoor sculptures were great. So glad I visited.

Contemporary exhibits in an older art deco building. There was just enough to see without being overwhelmed. The grounds featured sculpture as well. Paid $8. admission.

Always amazing things here. Be sure to go and see the great works and artists featured during the art Basel week. Or just after as the artwork stays for a whole

Small by today's standard. Few things from permanent collection on display. A very modern exhibit now on display. Not particularly good. Tries too hard to be cutting edge and does not succeed.

Bass Museum is an ok space for contempory art. On our visit there were 2 exhibits, art with a gold color theme and Peter Marino who is an architect with leather s&m tendencies. Not really our interests. Parking in the area is really a pain. Expect to drive around for 30 min or more. Not really worth a detour.

Don't spend on this one. Older art, a mere handful of pieces, confined to one small room. The rest of the huge rooms have a few sparse pieces by, to me, largely unknown modern artists. Unless you like Robert Mapplethorpe, quite a bit of that. Not even a cafe. If there was a shop, I didn't find it. Perez Museum... More

Was disappointing. Firstly, parking is extremely limited. after over 45 min's efforts to find parking somewhere afar we finally got in. the exhibitions did not meet my expectations, simply it is not my type.nonetheless, it might appeal to other people. the settings and the way of display are acceptable. also a leaflet that explains the art pieces that are numbered,...
