Outside is the place to be

Honestly I didn't go inside, but the outside is the place to be. Great hangout place with amazing energy. Right next to the tour boats stations. Do pass by and enjoy the weather.

This is in the large modern building that now looks over the ferry piers. It's an odd and very small collection of medieval Swiss paintings, some modern art, and three experimental videos. Personally I saw absolutely nothing of value, and felt that the 15 franc admission was outrageous (obviously, I had to pay before seeing the art and realizing that... More

Located right by the Lake this museum offers exhibitions ,concerts as well as lectures. You can obtain a catalog with all they have to offer inside or at various tourist offices. I attended a very interesting lecture.

We went on a rainy day, but not worth it unless you have already have a pass that covers admission. Very small exhibition space (don't let the size of the building from the outside fool you). A little confusing at the entrance as to whether to walk up stairs or take elevator - and to which floor. We enjoyed a... More

The art here is some of the finest in the world....you must lock up your items and I was scolded for have taken a picture of a sculpture, however, this place changed my perspective of human greatness and challenges me to be that much more.

I guess that I am not a modern art fan, but I did enjoy the building itself...Swiss Rail pass gets free admission, so worth a few minutes of your time. If you enjoy modern art and the exhibits at the time, it would be great.

We had a 2 day ticket 32 SF each that allowed us into all the museums. This was a well laid out and children really enjoyed.
