what you should see at any rate is the museum at the Münsterplatz, if I recall that correctly. It houses a former lecturehall of the university with an original "cathedra", from which the professors were reading their lectures, and on the walls the original portraits of Euler and of course of Jakob and Johann Bernoulli. The most knowledgable men in Basel to consult are Emil Fellmann and Fritz Nagel both of them involved in the Euler-edition.
