You have to visit this museum when you are in Zurich. Also the Rieterpark is worthwhile a visit and often very quiet. There is also a nice coffee shop and always special exhibitions.

This is an Asian Museum, and over the years I have seen many great exhibitions here. The quality is extremely high and well run. The ambience and setting is of the highest quality. Highly recommended.

The museum houses mainly pottery and statues from parts of the world other than Europe, which is interesting from an anthropology standpoint but unusual for an European destination. It likely caters to more of a local audience. The park it is located in is definitely worth walking around.

This museum has interesting exhibitions, which often are asian. It is located uphill in a residential area of the city. It has beautiful grounds.

I was so lucky to find this nice museum, away from the busy center, just by chance. Now, it will be one of my favorites! Visit it if you are interested in Asian or African art. You will be amazed!

Visited it since it was a top attraction in Zurich, it was ok but nothing to write home about. The park it was in was nice, but I wouldn't make this top of the list of things to see in Zurich.

After two years I have come back to the Rietberg Museum in Zurich. It has always been one of my favorite museums in Switzerland. Two years ago I saw the special exhibition of a Zenmaster. This time the special exhibition was “Akbar’s golden heritage (Akbars goldenes Erbe)”. This exhibition will end in two days (Feb 14th 2016). The next special... More
