For the Art Lover an intimate experience with ranging exhibitions of modern and classical art, friendly and knowledgable staff. Just right for a valuable 2 hour break on a shopping spree on nearby Limmatquai, Gemüsebrücke, Münsterhof and Bahnhofstrasse. Easiliy reachable by tramways 4 and 15 to Stop Helmhaus ( Rathaus )
