I love this museum so much, it has been my 3rd visit here and I was surprised about the amount of new masterpieces they collected since I was here last time. Bravo and keep it running.

An unexpectedly good collection where I found several amazing paintings of old masters and some really good ones from the XIX-XX centuries. I particularly liked still lifes of Pieter Claesz (the one with a gold pocket watch), Adriaen Coorte (esp. the one with a bundle...More

Every time I come to Zurich, this museum seems to have an outstanding exhibition going on, this trip was no exception. "Fashion Drive. Extreme Clothing in the Visual Arts" was a fascinating look at 500 years of fashion through the eyes of the artist. It's...More

We visited this art museum recently on a Wednesday when it's free. (And as things can be expensive in Switzerland, it was much appreciated!). We were pleasantly surprised by its collection of wonderful paintings by great artists including Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso, Matisse, Warhol, Giacometti,...More

Lovely variety of art from Modern and Contemporary, to some Impressionists, and a great collection of work from Swiss artists. The audio guides come with the entrance ticket which is nice.

I really enjoyed the art here. The Monet’s alone are worth the trip. The museum also have some Picasso’s and Chagall’s.

Average to good art museum. Enjoyed the special exhibit that related the progression of fashion as it is portrayed in art. I also enjoy the art of the 20th century (impressionism, picasso, klee, etc).

If you love the great impressionists, the Kunsthaus is can’t miss. Simply put, one of the best art museums in Europe. For those wondering, it’s not on the SwissPass, but it does offer youth, student, and senior discounts.
