  • One of my favorite places to visit in Zurich. Amazing construction are my first words. Staff and employees at the highest level. A real home of art. I have visited too many places like this, but here I was very positively surprised. I would rate the current program with the highest marks. The part dedicated to Yoko Ono to be experienced is not told. The price is adjusted to the standard of the state and the city. If you are a student you get a discount on a ticket. According to the information I received there, Wednesday is a day when admission is free. The room with the lights is fantastic, would it be good to write a real fantasy. My rating is 10/10. A real experience.
  • Absolutely fantastic art museum in Zurich. Huge collections of Impressionist and modern art which are my personal favorite styles. They have several rotating exhibits which are worth visiting, but do not miss the permanent collections either! Highly recommend this museum, I would come back next time I am in town. Easy to spend 2-3 hours or more there.
