  • What do you do on a gray November day? Go to the Museum. So far, so resourceful. This one is not in the traditional sense but, because only the building itself is an architectural highlight designed by Frank Gehry, even though it is not particularly large. We are not specifically because of the current exhibition "Alexander Girard. "A designer's universe" came here and had shown therefore so to speak a "blind date", that was very interesting, be it some really bizarre objects (such as a stewardess outfit of a U.S. airline), as well as fabrics, furnishings and even toys mostly from the 50s - 70s of the last century. 1.5-hour it went outside to the other buildings, installations and exhibitions of all freely accessible "Vitra campus" to visit, the more well-known architects and architects have left their mark. Partly, the exhibitions also without admission are free to visit. You may enter the premises, which is also very interesting buildings, understandably but only with a public tour. As a whole should be expected with a total stay of 3 to 5 hours, if you want to look at everything in peace.

  • The current exhibition is somehow quite dry. We found it all too covered. The building is interesting, but the neighboring Herzog de Meuron steals the show the Gehry quite...

  • I hate to give such a cool place 2 stars but for what we paid and got for it I can't go higher. The place is cool and we loved seeing the furniture. If you are going to pay for anything do that. The museum was a waste. A total waste. I guess it depends on the exhibit but it's not worth it to me and I go to tons of museums. The best part was the Vitra center which is free and worth the trip. The build is very cool and really fun. The store is very expensive but there are some cute small things you can buy. If all we did was see the chairs and the free center I would give it a 4. But 11 euros to see chairs in a garage is still a bit of a rip off.
  • Loved this place, we spent 6 (!) hours here. The architectural tours are fantastic. Really impressive how they managed to put all these buildings together without one outshining the other.
  • This place is worth a visit. I usually don't go to the museum itself, as the shop is astonishing and the café really nice, so no need to get inside the small but well done museum.
  • An architectural landmark with cozy views to hills covered with vineyards. Multiple floors of Vitra productions laid out to try and buy. Information about company, designers available in at least german, english, french.
  • Must visit if you love design and are around. Also check out the Vitra Haus.
