There is an Osiris exhibition on until July 2017 - well worth a visit as it covers the recent undersea excavations. Well laid out and informative labelling in English. The walk from the tram stop through a park is pretty. Free bag lockers. Good shop.

I have no hesitation in recommending a visit to this museum, regardless of whether there is a temporary exhibition.

Went to see the stunning exhibition of Frank Goddio's underwater excavations at Heraklion which is on until mid July. Very steep entry fee of Chf 25. That includes an audio guide but it wasn't very good for the exhibition. They also only had books but no phat cards of the exhibition pieces. Gift shop sells some pricey but great articles... More

My wife and I visited the Rietberg museum in order to see the excellent exhibition "Osiris - Egypt's Sunken Mysteries" (until July 16th 2017) which is a must see if you like egyptian art. The museum is located in a lovely park next to a beautiful old mansion which includes the museums bistro. Most of the exhibition spaces are actually... More

A jewel in the Zurich museum landscape in a generous park with precious old trees where it is also allowed to have picknick with the food from the museum cafe - where you even can get a basket and a plaid! The shows are very carefully arranged with great sensibility for the object of the show and subtle aesthetic sense.... More

In front of Museum there is a compound Villa Wesendonck where are assambled American, African... More

Museum Rietberg has one of the largest collections of asian art that I have seen. They regularly have special shows which are excellently curated and well documented. Set in a pretty park with old trees, it is definetly worth a visit.

A place to visit again and again. You get bored. The small bistro with local, organic foods is delightful. The traditional Japanese Tea Ceremonial is a one in the life time experience. Booking in advance ( over the website ) is recommend !

We weren't in the mood for seeing antiquities when it was such nice weather. The grounds are great for strolling (although a bit hilly) and down by the lake is the fascinating collection of cacti, if you're into that sort of thing.
