Mostly lesser known Swiss artists. Interesting,as a visitor, to gain an insight into Switzerland as the Swiss see it. Quiet, on a weekday, and well worth a visit.

Expensive museum (like most place in Switzerland), but definitely worth the visit. A nice variety of paintings from the dedicated collector. If you have to choose one place to visit, I would definitely recommend this one.

A few paintings (Hodler) and the miniatures were fun to see. Otherwise a lot of mediocre paintings not worth the day trip from Lucerne to see. The Clock Museum in town was much better. The special exhibit in September 2016 was not exciting. Apparently the...More

Oskar Reinhart Foundation Museum hosts an excellent collection of classic masters as well as less known Swiss painters. In my opinion, it's the best art museum in Winterthur so highly recommended to art lovers.

We enjoyed especially Hodler's ample selection of paintings. They span over several decades of the artist's life and show remarkble impressionist and neoimpressionist almost expressionist pieces of art. Anker is an excellent technician but his naturalist works don't bring much innovation but illustrations of the...More

The Oskar-Reinhart Foundation Museum is centrally located in the downtown district. There are two floors of exhibit space including stunning and superior quality paintings some dated from the 17-1800’s. Also, running through January 2016, is a separate exhibit of special holdings of Christoph Blocher, which...More

Unique chance to see a large part (80 works) of the personal collection of Christoph Blocher, Works of Swiss artists around 1900: Anker, Hodler etc. A MUST, and worth a travel to Winterthur!!! Attention: lasts only until January 2016
