“The Tate Modern of Zurich”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

The quality of exhibits that the Kunsthaus put on are shockingly good. The museum puts a spotlight on the rich art culture that lives and breathes in this city. What is wonderful is that their relationship and influential role in pushing landmark art movements throughout history is the reason why epic collections are shown here. Moreover the setting is wonderful. Also it is fairly inexpensive for Zurich standards

“Visit if you have time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

We had some extra time. I thought a city this rich would have a good collection of art and it did not disappoint. It is also very good for modern art lovers. We enjoyed it.

“nice Sunday option (with AC!)”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

the collection was ok. enjoyed some of the modern pieces. nice option for a Sunday when many things are closed. didn't see the Cindy Sherman exhibition but that probably would've been more interesting.

“Cindy Sherman”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

We visited the museum especially for the Cindy Sherman exhibition, but the museum's permanent collection is interesting enough on its own. Sherman was good, but the free audio tour was not entirely in sync with the photos on display. The tour would mention a series of photos only to discover that they are not shown together, therefore you had to look for them. This playing of 'hide and seek' somewhat spoils your viewing experience.
