“Great collection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

The audio tour was included in the 15cf price. There were many master works. The Gates of Hell out in front of the museum was a highlight for me. Bring cash for snacks.

“Excellent and Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

Get the museum pass. If you like Impressionists, it is great.
Not a huge museum but very well maintained and organized. Accessible from the tram, as always, in Zurich. After the visit just strolled down the old town, just a few steps away.

“Nice museum for Impressionist Paintings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

I enjoyed my visit to the museum and especially liked the various impressionist painting in displayed. It was a nice surprise when I arrived on Thursday evening visit - after a morning trip to Lucerne, that the museum was a free entrance day. What is also nice about this museum was that you can take pictures of the painting to enjoy when you get home.

“Amazing musuem in the heart of Zurich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

Truly eclectic and packed with tasteful art.
Located in a very accessible location the museum serves as a very good 4 hour break from the cold weather outside.
All known names are here and the place is not too full so you can really sink in a piece of art prior to moving on rather than being pushed to move forward by crowds...
