“OMG you must go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

The museum don't seem to advertise their amazing range of art much. So all I was expecting was Rembrandt and Monet. Then boom there is Picasso, boom there is Van Gogh. There is Dali, Matisse, Munch, Degas, Bacon, Mondrain... Most of them have several pieces exhibiting. I almost missed Dali's Femme a tetes de roses because It was behind a piece of wall. I was overjoyed by the collection. And so few people. Very exciting and comfortable experience. Such fair price for what you get to see.

“Central European art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

A well-ordered museum that is small enough to see in a day and large enough to include a good permanent collection of European art. It also hosts excellent traveling shows from time to time. It has a good cafe and good bookshop. It is easy to reach on public transportation.

“Much more art than you can expect from their site”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

Kunsthaus Zurich has a very rich collection of old art (medieval gothic, Rainassance with El Greco, Tintoretto, Canaletto, Rubens etc., impressionists with a few Van Gogh paintings, many works by Monet, Degas, Rodin and oth., 2 sculptures by Brancusi), good collection of modern art, has a free audioguide included in the ticket price, there is a separate audioguide for younger visitors, I found the guide offered very good explanations, all in all the collection is way more reacher then you will expect if you look at the info they provide on the internet. One can spend 2-3 hours or even more there, if you love art. The museum is a little bit outside the tourist ways - you have to walk uphill behind the Grossmunster, then downhill, look for the signs. You can get there by public transport too, tram stop is just in front of it.
