Art Museum Museum
An art lover's dream come true, Kunsthaus houses one of the most significant art collections in Switzerland. Designed by architects Karl Moser and Robert Curjel, the museum opened in 1910. Today, the permanent collection boasts major works by Gauguin, van Gogh, Cezanne, and Monet. The museum also houses a comprehensive collection of works by Swiss sculptor Alberto Giacometti, including the trademark stick figures that catapulted this artist to world fame. Be sure to leave plenty of time for the galleries displaying classic photographs by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank, and Andre Kertesz. Before you set off on a self-guided tour of the collection, check the website for a downloadable museum map.

  • Often has some great temporary exhibitions, but may be a little expensive on a combined ticket. The permanent collection is good anyway, with Swiss artists & a good impressionist collection.  more »
  • Was expecting more of Monet and other artist from his time. There are some very nice old paintings. We did spend less time than I did expect.  more »

  • Amazing wealth of art here. You will need a whole day for this museum. There is a room of Marc Chagall's works! The impressionism floor is priceless! I'm speechless! Maybe my pictures will speak for themselves.
  • Ok! It's a great museum. Many masters and periods represented. Best part of our trip to Zurich so far. And it was free today! So expensive was not an issue. Maybe it's a Wednesday thing. Check online before you go. Many museums have a free day.
  • It's free on Wednesdays and generally worth checking out if you have the time. There are some nice Van Gogh pieces and a lot of nice contemporary art.
  • Great collection. Wonderful Monet. Included great diversity of art and Swiss artists
  • I've underestimated the size of collections brace yourself once entered because wahhhhhhhhhhhh it's huge also really nice selection of art
