“Nice paintings and”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

This museum is a great visit to see paintings from some Swiss painters (Valotton, Holder). There are also some other well known paintings from masters such as Van Gogh, Rembrandt.
Some large murals taking the whole of a wall are really impressive.

There is also a good section on archeology and also on modern art. I go 2-3 times a year and I think there's always something new to discover. I'm curious to see how the museum will evolve after the new transformation project.

This museum is brilliant, so much to see. Make sure to go and see the Conrad Witz canvas 'The Miracle of the Fishes'. Also pieces from Monet, Renoir, & Picasso to name but a few. They have a lovely litte cafe there also
