Art Kids at Art Basel is a perfect and safe place for children ages four and above to enjoy art and recreational activities while their parents visit the fair. Children enrolled in the program participate under the supervision of Familycare Basel professionals.

Art Kids is located in Hall 1.2 and open to Art Basel visitors during show hours. While at Art Kids, children can enjoy fruits, cookies, and beverages free of charge. There is also the option, at a small cost, to arrange a child-friendly sandwich and/or pasta meal for children during their visit.

Helpful Hints

Helpful Hints

Introducing children to Modern and contemporary art can be the beginning of a life-long adventure. Here are some tips for making the most of your children's visit to Art Basel:

  • Children under age 16 must always be accompanied by an adult.
  • Remind your children to always walk, not run.
  • Smaller children can be brought in baby strollers, which are permitted throughout the venue.
  • Remind children that security guards protect us and the art; please ask your children to respect their requests.
  • Instruct your children to never touch art as it can be damaged by the natural oils on their fingers.
  • To protect the art, please enjoy food and beverages only in the dining areas, especially with children.
  • Provided to offer a quiet place to nurse your baby, nursing rooms are located in the Guest Lounge, Hall 2.2, and in Art Kids, Hall 1.2.
