Zentrum Paul Klee

      Zentrum Paul Klee is one the best art museums in Europe to visit with kids. Klee was born in a town near Bern, lived in Switzerland, and all his life he was interested in painting, poetry, and music, and kid's drawings.

    From the moment you step into the wavy building designed by Renzo Piano, looking at oodles of whimsical, colorful, original, humorous artworks by Klee is an amazing experience. The paintings themselves make you laugh, even the titles are intriguing –"Barbarian General," "High Spirits," "Rustling Ships." Also, listen to the music that Klee liked, and view a collection of hand puppets he made. No other museum has such as range of Klee's works in one place, it's simply inspiring.
    Kindermuseum Creaviva – After seeing Klee's paintings, go down to the basement level, where any time kids can make their own art creations – paintings on cloth. All the materials are provided, there are also workshops.
      Zentrum Paul Klee is easy to get to, just take the No. 12 bus from the city center, it goes directly there.

Before you visit the Zentrum Paul Klee, get to know the artist, who was born in Bern. Klee came from a musical family, but he always loved to draw, so he became an artist, and painted imaginative artworks with bright colors and shapes. (Picture book)
