On a Sunday morning we saw the video art exposition, well-documented and, to use that horrible but ineluctable word, "interesting." Pipilotti Rist's was most interesting.

We found there any interesting collections. The part dedicated to contemporary glass work was really beautiful. In the museum you will find also many artifacts of middle age and well presented. We spent more than 1 hour inside and I think I will come back with my kids during summer holidays

Although not on a level with Paris or London, there are a number of pieces in this museum worth seeing, and it is definitely worth the entrance fee. The highlight of the collection is the Swiss art, ranging from the mountain landscapes of Louis Ducros and others, to more modern, abstract and Cubist works
