A place to visit again and again. You get bored. The small bistro with local, organic foods is delightful. The traditional Japanese Tea Ceremonial is a one in the life time experience. Booking in advance ( over the website ) is recommend !

We weren't in the mood for seeing antiquities when it was such nice weather. The grounds are great for strolling (although a bit hilly) and down by the lake is the fascinating collection of cacti, if you're into that sort of thing.

The Rietberg museum is one of my favorite places to visit in Zürich. The exhibitions are always top notch and the permanent collection is interesting enough to look at. I could just spend hours in the book shop and I WANT to buy everything. Of course, in the warmer months it is better to visit as it is surrounded by... More

An outstanding museum of several collections. With one exception, Gardens of the World, non-flash photography is permitted. Pamphlets in English are available. The vast collection is displayed in several buildings on the campus, and there is coffee shop and gift shop (of course). Focusing your time on specific areas of interest, will enable the visitor to see what's really relevant... More

Yawn..CHF18.00 to look at an exhibition is a ripoff. Save your money and enjoy the nice park landscape for free. Don't bother with the restaurant, see for yourself in the attached photo what it costs

Hidden in a parc, near translation Zurich-Engi, is a real treasure: You walk up a few steps and will find even for Wagner Fans Villa Wesendonck and right beneath the museum.take your time and stroll around. The exposition part changes and it is very inspirational for artists, scientist and cultural interested people.

The setting for this Museum on beautiful grounds with huge trees and lovely walking paths complements the museum's collections of artifacts from primitive cultures to the sophisticated developments in China, Japan, Africa, really from all over the Asian world. The displays are wonderfully arranged so you can follow the work from ancient dynasties of China to modern times. A most... More

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.
