Visited mid-week and not that busy, even though lunchtime. Photography exhibition "World in Colour" is well worth a visit, as is the incredible special exhibition on Papua New Guinea. Allow lots of time as there is so much to see and not possible to do all in one visit. Highly recommend.

Well worth a visit but leave yourselves plenty of time as the volume of exhibits is astounding. These are mainly historic artifacts but from all over the World. The current exhibition of old scenes from around the World is fascinating and, when you've had enough, the cafe refreshments are to be enjoyed.

This is a wonderful ethnographic museum with a superb collection of art from Asia, Africa and the Americas. For Richard Wagner devotees it has added interest as being housed in the Villa Wesendonck where the composer most likely had an affair with the lady of the house and wrote a series of famous lieder in her honor. The museum is... More

I cannot believe it took me numerous visits to Zurich to discover this gem. I saw an ad for it in town so I looked it up and off I went. The collection of African art was my favorite, but the others are excellent as well. They have material from various parts of Asia, from New Zealand, and the Americas.... More

The whole setting of this museum is delightful, with a couple of houses in extensive grounds and beautiful gardens. We primarily went to see the photographic exhibition of the world in color pre 1930 which was exceptional- not only prints but also original books we could look through with white gloves provided

Located in a beautiful park, this museum offers great exhibitions and a permanent collection. Worth the visit and to hang out under the trees for a break.

There was a special exhibition when we visited called Cosmos. The gallery itself has an amazing collection of Oriental and African Artifacts. We had lunch in the cafe which was good.
